Welcome to Western

Financial Resource Workbook


The prospect of attending university is an exciting one, full of potential and promise.  Planning for the costs of attending university is a necessary step in understanding your options.  Developed by Western, the Financial Resource Workbook is a tool that can help you understand the many different financial programs that work together to make a Western education accessible.

The Financial Resource Workbook is designed for students entering year one, full-time studies at Western’s Main Campus who are Ontario residents and are coming directly from high school.  It estimates the cost of tuition and fees, as well as the costs based on your choice of living arrangements while you study (living at home, in residence, or off-campus).  The Financial Resource Workbook will guide you through the different sources of financial support that may be available to you through the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) as well as through scholarships and bursaries from Western.  This information will help you build a plan for financing your education at Western.
