Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application.


Students who do not wish to be limited to 10 hours of paid employment during their studies are strongly encouraged to pursue flex-time studies.

Funding for International Students

There are limited funding opportunities available for international students at Nipissing University. In order to obtain a study permit, international students must submit evidence of having enough funds to cover tuition and living expenses. Therefore, it is expected that all international students attending Nipissing will be able to support themselves and any dependents during their studies.  International students in thesis-based programs may be eligible for an internal scholarship and/or assistantships, which are typically offered at the time of admission.

Method of Payment of Graduate Awards and Funding

Unless otherwise indicated, awards and funding are paid out in three equal installments throughout​ the fall, winter and spring terms.
