Resources for Graduating Students
King’s University College is delighted that you are part of our graduating class, but most importantly, that you have succeeded in reaching your goal.
Just a moment of your time in planning can be the difference between success and failure, and can reduce some of the financial stress that comes along with graduation. If you wish to review some of the information below with our office, please book an appointment by calling the Student Financial Services Office at 519-433-3491 ex. 4319. When booking, please state that it is for “Graduating Counselling.”
