Financial Assistance2018-01-06T11:52:00-07:00

At Q College, our students have many financial assistance options. As a Designated College under the  B.C. Private Training Institutions Branch, our students are eligible for a variety of funding options.

It always helpful to talk to a financial representative at our college to let you know about all available financing options to figure out what would work best for you and your needs. Feel free to call (250) 298-5059 and  book an appointment for a free consultation.

Some options include:

Interest-Free Student Payment Plan

Q College students who have made the initial 30% deposit to hold their seat may pay an extra administration fee of $150.00 to make monthly payments for the balance of their tuition. Q College will extend payments over the length of the program subject to the applicant being approved by admissions. Post-dated cheques and/or credit card preauthorization forms are required for this option.

Employment Insurance(EI) Funded Training

Educational funding may be available for qualified applicants who are either currently collecting EI, have collected regular EI benefits in the past three years, or have collected maternity/paternity EI benefits in the past five years. Generally, the first step is to contact your EI officer who can refer you to your local employment service centre, such as GT Hiring Solutions, WorkLink or Amber Education.

Q College has had great success with assisting our students with funding approval through Amber Education. Our administration team is very familiar with the process and application forms to apply for EI retraining funding, and are happy to assist any student in what can sometimes be a difficult process.


The Canada-B.C. Job Grant (CJG) is an employer-driven, cost-sharing program that helps employers invest in training for their current or future employees. The CJG assists eligible employers to offset the cost of training up to a maximum of $10,000 per participant per fiscal year, and up to a maximum of $15,000 per participant per fiscal year for the unemployed stream. The employer contributes at least one-third to the cost of training, with the exception of the unemployed stream. The employer must have a job for the participant at the end of training.
