Canadian students enrolled in the naturopathic medicine program may be eligible, if qualified, for assistance under one or more components of the following:
Government loans may not cover the full cost of tuition.
A student may only apply from the province of residence in which he or she has most recently lived for at least 12 consecutive months, excluding time spent as a full-time student at a post-secondary institution. Currently, the province of Quebec does not recognize the naturopathic medicine program at CCNM as one eligible for government loans. Please contact a CCNM admissions and student services officer for alternative sources of financial aid. You may submit a loan application prior to receiving your acceptance letter from the College. Submit your application as early as possible (by mid-June) to ensure that your loan will be available upon College registration. Processing times may vary and can take eight to 10 weeks. You may obtain student loan information from your provincial loan office or by contacting an admissions and student services officer.
When applying for government loans, please note the following start/end dates for the bridge program:
