President’s Update

During July and August, I will not be sending these updates on a regular basis; they will be shared when important information comes up. The updates will resume once the 2020-21 fall semester starts. I hope you enjoy your summer and take the time to recharge and enjoy the nice weather.


If you have not already sent in a picture to be shared on our GRAD 2020 Facebook page, please send yours in so that we can celebrate your success. Please snap a picture in your cap and tassel, or as you would like your family, friends and classmates to see you, and send it to   info@auroracollege.nt.ca with the subject line:  GRAD2020 – your name.  You can access the page here or search Aurora College Grad 2020 on Facebook.


Canada Student Service Grant Program

Current post-secondary students (enrolled as of September 2020) or those who have graduated since December 2019, and who are 30 years of age or younger may be eligible to participate in the new Canada Student Service Grant Program.

The program allows Canadian not-for-profit organizations to provide meaningful service opportunities to post-secondary students and recent graduates. Upon completion of the CSSG volunteer opportunity, student participants who meet the eligibility criteria can also apply to receive a grant between $1,000 and $5,000.

If the CSSG is of interest to you, apply as soon as possible. After you register, you will be invited to join volunteer training. Upon completion, student volunteers will begin service activities.

**Full details on the Canada Student Service Grant Program are available here.

September 2020 Programming & Applications

If you, or someone you know, are thinking about applying to Aurora College for the fall, applications are still being accepted online at www.auroracollege.nt.ca.

Most of our programming during the fall semester will be by distance learning, with specific programs delivered by a blended method of both distance and face-to-face learning to ensure that critical skills and learning outcomes are completed. Our focus remains on providing quality programming for our students while our priority is keeping everyone in the Aurora College community safe and healthy.

For those of you who don’t have access to technology, we are working with the GNWT and other organizations to find ways to  assist you and will provide updates as we get them

We are confident in our ability to deliver our programs by distance learning, however, we are offering a tuition refund for students who may not be satisfied with their distance learning experience. Students will be able to withdraw by October 9, 2020 with a full tuition refund and no academic penalty, or withdraw by November 6, 2020 with a 50 percent tuition refund and no academic penalty.


Student Financial Assistance 

While the deadline to apply for SFA for fall 2020 programs was June 30, that doesn’t mean that you can’t still apply. Your application will still be accepted and processed, but you might not get a decision or funding prior to the first day of classes in September. Late applications are accepted, but payment is not guaranteed for the start of the semester. Since in-person services are not available for the submission or acceptance of paper applications, students are encouraged to submit their application by:


Applying Online

Requesting a Call Back
First time students, students that do not have reliable access to internet or students requiring assistance in completing their applications, can request a call back from a SFA staff member.  By choosing this option, you can request and receive a call back from a SFA staff member who will assist you in completing your application and answer any questions or concerns you may have about the SFA program.
