Loan programs and interest subsidies
Professional Student Loan Plan (PSLP) with RBC or BMO
All domestic students (Canadian citizens, permanent residents) can access an interest subsidized loan to cover the full cost of their tuition, University incidental fees and Rotman-specific ancillary fees from the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) or Bank of Montreal (BMO) for the MMA program. International students (those on study visas) can also access a RBC or BMO loan secured with a qualified Canadian resident co-signer, cash collateral, or standby letter of credit. The Rotman School pays the interest incurred on this specialized student loan for the duration the student is enrolled in the MMA program up to June 30 of their graduating year.
Rotman Interest Subsidy Program (RISP)
Students who have obtained student or education loans from an officially recognized financial institution (in Canada or in their home country) can enroll in the Rotman Interest Subsidy Program (RISP). The Rotman School may provide a subsidy for the interest incurred on a student loan for the duration the student is registered in the MMA program up to June 30 of their graduating year. The subsidy will be calculated based on the prime interest rate (in Canada) and a loan amount not to exceed the tuition, University incidental fees and ancillary fees of the MMA program.
The Master of Management Analytics program is considered a full time program, and as such, students are eligible for Canadian government loan programs. Each provincial government in Canada administers and maintains a student financial aid program in cooperation with the federal government’s Canada Student Loan (CSL) program. When you apply to your provincial government for assistance, you are also automatically considered for a loan through the CSL. For more information, consult the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) website.
Lifelong Learning Plan (LLP)
The LLP allows individuals to withdraw amounts from their registered retirement savings plans (RRSPs) to finance their own education or that of their spouse/partner. Amounts withdrawn under the LLP do not count towards income and the RRSP issuer does not withhold taxes on these amounts. Withdrawals must be repaid over a period of no more than 10 years.
For more information, consult the Canada Revenue Agency website.
Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP)
An RESP is an education savings account that is registered with the Government of Canada for parents who want to save for their child's post-secondary education. Once the child (the RESP beneficiary) has graduated from high school and enrolled full-time or part-time in a qualifying post-secondary educational program, the Plan holder can request, on his or her behalf, to withdraw money from the RESP to help pay for their studies.
Educational Assistance Payments include the interest earned in the RESP as well as any Canada Education Savings Grants, provincial grants and Canada Learning Bonds received. The money can be used to pay for post-secondary school expenses like tuition, books and transportation. For more information, consult the Canada Revenue Agency website.

Loan Assistance for students from the United States

International Peace Scholarship Fund for Women (IPS)
IPS is a program providing grants-in-aid for selected women from other countries for graduate study in the United States and Canada.
