Becoming Money Wi$e

Understanding and managing your finances wisely is an important part of being a student at Lakehead University. 


That is why we have launched our Money Wi$e initiative to help you make informed financial decisions and understand the various different financial aid opportunities available to you as a student. At Lakehead, you matter to us and through Money Wi$e we will help teach you how to PLAN, SAVE, and better MANAGE your money.  

What's the key to surviving financially during your university years?

  • Plan ahead!
  • Create a budget!  
  • Learn to live like a student!

Through awareness of your spending, and associated costs to attend post-secondary, you can learn to live within your means and relieve the stress of accumulating that huge student debt.  The financial habits you create in University will stay with you for the rest of your life!

Things to Consider

  • What are your program costs?
  • Will you have time for a job on the side?
  • Where will you live?
  • What financial options are available at Lakehead? Can they help me out?
  • How will I pay for everything?

Meanwhile, make sure to communicate your decisions with the people who may be helping to fund your education.
