A brief description of notable policies or programs to make the institution accessible and affordable to low-income students:

Humber College is a publicly funded institution and as such maintains tuition rates that are affordable. Students have access to federal and provincial student aid programs (OSAP), which include grants for students from low-income and middle income families.
Humber also offers scholarships and bursaries to students each year, of which many are directed specifically towards students in financial need.

The Ontario Work-Study Program is a special program that gives students a chance to work part-time on campus. A variety of employment opportunities, such as computer labs, Student Residence, Registrar’s Office, Peer Tutoring, Athletics, Library, Campus Tours, and academic offices, exist for students on campus that demonstrate financial need and are in satisfactory academic standing.

Humber has designated a portion of the tuition funds to assist Continuing Education (CE) students who have a proven financial need. This bursary assists CE students who are experiencing financial hardship.

For the calculation of graduation rates for low income students:
We have worked collaboratively with Humber's Financial Aid Department and the Office of Registrar. We have considered low-income students as students that are granted the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) and students without loan-debt as students who are not granted OSAP. For this exercise, we use the student data from the 2021/22 academic year that was submitted to the Ministry.

Student Segment Entrants Graduates Grad Rate
Not on OSAP 9,054 6,293 69.5%
OSAP 6,402 4,340 67.8%
% of OSAP Students 41% 41%
