Scholarships & Grants

Whether you are planning to study at a university, college or learn a specialized trade, figuring out the financial side of paying for school and managing your finances while studying can be a challenge. Tuition, books, student fees, transportation, housing and other expenses require a large financial investment.

For most students, personal savings will not be enough to cover these costs. Students often rely on student loans for financial support. Student loans can be helpful, but students should aim to graduate with as little debt as possible.

RBC Royal Credit Line For Students ©

The Royal Credit Line for Students lets you focus on what's important: your studies. Available to full-time and part-time students who need to finance their studies, it allows you to take charge of your financial needs in a way that fits your lifestyle.

The Royal Credit Line for Students is different from a traditional loan in that it lets you borrow funds as you need them and pay the interest on only the amount you use without ever having to reapply. You get all the convenience and benefits with no annual fee.

As a student, you may qualify for one of RBC's best rates - Prime + 1%, which applies when you are at school and for a 12-month 'grace period' after graduation.

Further information about financial assistance is available from the Financial Representative at your nearest CDI College campus.


Students are informed of all fees related to the program of study during the admission process. Program costs may include charges for tuition, registration, learning guides, kits and materials.

Tuition may be paid through loan disbursements received from a student loan or by cash, cheque, VISA, MasterCard, or Interac.

Tuition costs for prospective students are subject to change without notice upon approval from the provincial regulating body. All accepted registrations, however, are not subject to tuition increase unless there is a signed contract amendment to revise the program or length of study.

Tuition is due according to the terms of any payment plan negotiated with a CDI College Financial Representative. All tuition and other fees must be paid in full prior to the academic end date specified on a student's enrollment contract. Financial Representatives are made available to assist students with arranging payment plans that ensure full payment by the contract end date.

Students who do not pay fees as agreed upon or do not make satisfactory arrangements to pay tuition and other charges will be suspended or dismissed from the College.

CDI College's Refund Policy abides by the Private Training Regulation of the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) Private Training Act. For more information, click here.
