Financial Assistance

Financial assistance is directly tied to the financial need of individual families. We offer financial assistance in order to remove financial barriers that keep promising students from receiving the very best education. This year, 22% of our student body benefited from financial assistance and we are determined to expand our ability to help students and their families in this way.

Apple Financial Services

Apple Financial Services is a member of the organization of Financial Aid for Canadian Students (FACS). By working with them, our school is able to have an external organization evaluate the financial need of individual families, and ensure that the financial information provided is held in complete confidence. FACS will provide us with a recommendation, which the SMUS Financial Assistance Committee uses to decide on the level of financial assistance to award to a particular student.

Families interested in applying for financial assistance must register and complete the online application using the Apple Financial Services website. The online application provides instructions and help as you fill out the form.

We ask all financial assistance recipients to re-apply each year so that the level of assistance can be awarded according to each family's current situation.

Once you have completed the application for financial assistance, you will see directions for forwarding tax (and other) documentation. You will have the option of uploading your documents electronically, but Apple Financial will also provide directions for mailing items to their office in Ottawa should you prefer.

If you have any questions for Apple Financial Services, their telephone number is 1-866-437-7795. If you have any question about the financial assistance process at St. Michaels University School, you are welcome to contact Alexis Lang Lunn, Director of Admissions, at 250-370-6174.
