Electronic info is a site dedicated to the research of Ontario universities and the degrees available at each of them. It is a useful site for students who are interested in a certain field and are uncertain as to where the degree program is offered. It is also beneficial in outlining all degrees at each Ontario university.
The Ontario Student Assistance Program site assists students in the student loan application for a post-secondary education. The Financial Aid office of each post-secondary institution can work with students through this process.
