Financial Aid

Our financial aid program allows any student to manage and secure the budget they need to cover their tuition fees.

The aid is based on the financial means of each family: the greater the financial need, the greater the aid provided.

Depending on your social and financial situation, the Social Services assistant offers you one of the following options:

Social Grants

Social Service grants are given to students experiencing social and personal difficulties in addition to financial constraints.

Interest-Free Loans from USJ

An interest-free loan is provided by USJ to help the student cover a portion of tuition fees.

Repayment is made over a period equal to the years of assistance. The student benefits from a one-year grace period after the expected date of graduation.

Free tuition deferment

Usually, tuition is paid in four yearly installments. The student may ask to split the amount to be paid over 8 to 10 months, if his or her situation justifies it.
