The Important Stuff
If you are applying for NWT Student Financial Assistance, your application must be received by Education, Culture and Employment by June 30 for programs commencing in the Fall, and by October 31 for programs commencing in January. Contact the agency to which you are applying for specific information. You do not need an acceptance letter from the College prior to applying for financial assistance.
If you require financial assistance, you must contact the assisting agency or department directly, as Aurora College has no role in the granting or approval of financial assistance. You will be informed by the appropriate agency if your application for assistance has been accepted. Check with your sponsoring agency regarding application deadlines.
Who To Contact
You may be eligible for financial assistance through:
- NWT Student Financial Assistance Program of the Government of the Northwest Territories’ Department of Education, Culture and Employment
Indigenous Skills Employment Training (ISETS funding is administered by the groups below):
- Akaitcho Territory Government
- Dehcho First Nations
- Gwich’in Tribal Council
- Sahtu Dene Council
- Tlicho Government
- Inuvialuit Regional Corporation
- NWT Metis Nation
A: The cost of your education and living expenses is often something that students underestimate. Student Financial Assistance is designed to only cover about 80% of the costs. You should make a budget for yourself and explore your funding options to cover your costs. Our Student Services team can help you to create a budget.
