Financial Planning


MONEY MATTERS


University education requires your family to make a significant investment. We understand that all of the options can be daunting, and are committed to working with you and your family from the beginning of your exploration into the University of Regina. Financing an education can be one of the biggest investments in your lives. When it comes to saving for your child’s university education, we advise you to start planning as early as possible and to look at all of the available options. Some of the avenues you may consider include:

  • Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) – a government approved investment
  • Canada Educations Savings Grant – the federal government will match a portion of your RESP
  • Government Student Loans – The Government of Canada and the Government of Saskatchewan work together to provide financial assistance to help eligible students pay for post-secondary education. When students apply, the government will assess their financial situation and offer grants and loans based on students’ needs.
  • Private student loans and lines of credit
  • Scholarships, bursaries, and awards – the University of Regina offers many awards based on different requirements. Some are based on program of study while others look at activities and financial need.

INSIDER TIPS:

 

  • For students, having a part-time job while they are in university is a great way to gain experience and transferable skills, and for many is a financial necessity. However, we recommend that students limit the number of hours they work as attending University could be considered a full-time job!
  • The Co-op Program is a great way for students to help finance their education and gain valuable experience. It alternates practical, career-related, paid work terms with semesters in class, giving students 12-16 months of supervised work experience by the time they graduate.
  • Last year the University of Regina gave our students over 9.5 million dollars in award funding. Encourage your students to apply for awards!
  • In order to help your student succeed in money matters, talk to them now about their financial plan and help them set a budget.
