Student Line of Credit

This is the number one choice of our students. 

What is a student line of credit?
A student line of credit is a set amount of funds borrowed from Canadian banks, credit unions, etc,  to allow students to pursue their educational journey. It is funds that are allocated specifically to you, and are accessible whenever needed.


How it works
We have a great reputation with the major Canadian Banks. They approve student lines of credit for up to $20,000 a year, and offer amazing low interest rates, including a one-year interest free grace period. 


You must meet the following criteria:

  • Be a full-time or part time, post-secondary student
  • Be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident
    A co signer may be required depending on your credit score

Check out the links to see the various offers for students from the local banks. 

TD, BMO, RBC, Scotiabank, National Bank,

In addition, be sure to check out personal lines of credit. These are offered at a higher interest rate, but can exceed the $20,000 loan, and offer a more flexible repayment period.

Tangerine, Meridian, MoGo, Simplii, Manulife

We highly encourage you to speak to a local bank representative to gain more insight, be offered customization, and be aware of any conditions.. Miami Ad School Toronto does not work with any financial institution, and is not guarranting you a line of credit. We are only stating what has worked well  for some of our students in the past. International students and students who have borrowed from private lenders will need to independently review and confirm the details of their repayment with their respective loan providers.

Canada Ontario Job Grant (Bootcamps only)

It is a government initiative to promote training and advancement in the workplace. For independent business’, they will cover anywhere from 70% – 85% of the tuition. If you work for a larger company, over 100 employees, it can be 50% – 85% off tuition.
