Really BIG funding situation

A photo of Anonymous Anonymous
Hello
I am in a really big funding situation. I can't get a bank loan to pay for my residence. I need to pay 500 dollars for a security deposit by the end of March and then by June pay all or most of my residence fees. I am unable to get a bank loan because of my parents bad credit and I am trying to find someone else to co-sign for me and thats not working out too well. Is there any grants I can apply for? I haven't been accepted into college yet. I need some advice!

Since you aren't registered yet, you may have a problem getting student loans, but another thing to look for is bursaries available in your community and your school. They may not be able to provide funding immediately, but hey, it's money.

Another thing to try is e-mailing residence services at the school you are attending. If you explain your situation, they may be able to defer the pre-payment until later. This would give you a chance to look into your other options.

Also, if your financial situation is poor, you can look for need based scholarships and OSAP.

Residence won't do anything at the college I am going to. They need 500 dollars by the end of March if I give it to them after March my chances of being accepted into residence are slim. They won't hold off payment for me. I have already asked. OSAP won't do anything until funding gets released in Sept they won't release anything before then

There are not many bursary or grants I can apply for my certificate program

You could easily make 500 dollars in a month.
I mean.. if you can't get any loans or bursaries/grants and you can't borrow from someone.. you don't really have an option.
