Financial Aid

At Algoma University, we understand that financing for post-secondary education is a large and difficult task. The Financial Aid Office is dedicated to assisting students with meeting their education-related financial needs. We provide advice, information and support to students to help navigate the process of funding postsecondary studies.


Algoma University is working hard to support all students to continue their studies with the university despite the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. This memo outlines key internal and external financial supports that are available to eligible students; International and Canadian students, as well as specific support for Anishinaabe (First Nations, Métis, Inuit) students. To learn more about new and existing financial supports for students, please view the Communication Memo: New and Existing Financial Supports for Students (PDF).
