The dedicated Financial Aid team at Bredin College will help you through the financing process and discuss funding options with you such as Student Aid, personal line of credit or loan, or RESPs. They will take time to personally assist in determining which financial option is right for you. Once this is decided they work with you to help secure funding before starting your program.
