The Student Financial Profile is a multi-purpose online application form that is used to apply for scholarships, bursaries and on-campus employment programs. You should complete the SFP at the start of each academic session (once for Fall/Winter and once for Summer) to be considered for these programs.
To access the SFP you will need a Passport York account.
Please note that simply saving a completed SFP application does not submit the application, nor will it make you eligible for the above programs. Make sure to click ‘submit’ and not just ‘save’ when you are done your application!
NEW – Friends of Glendon Hardship Bursary
Thanks to a generous donation from the Friends of Glendon, a hardship bursary fund has been created for undergraduate Glendon students that need financial assistance due to the ongoing labour disruption. An online form is available for you to fill out, and decisions will be sent within 5 business days of submitting a request.
York is also offering bursary support to undergraduate students (domestic and international) who have experienced financial hardship as a result of the ongoing labour disruption. To be considered, please complete the Request for Additional Financial Assistance form. You will be required to provide a detailed statement explaining how you have been impacted and to submit relevant supporting documentation. If you did not complete the Student Financial Profile for the Fall/Winter 2017-2018 study period, you will be required to do so as part of the application process for this bursary. The deadline to apply for this bursary assistance is June 30, 2018.
For more information on financial aid options being offered, please visit the following website.
The summer 2018 SFP application is now available for students wishing to participate in the summer Work/Study program (RAY/CLAY/YES/Workstudy). The deadline to apply for this program is June 15, 2018.
The Summer 2018 applications for the York University Undergraduate Bursary and the Graduate Studies Bursary are unavailable at this time. Further information about these programs will be communicated at a later date.
Steps to fill out your SFP
1. Review all of the awards listed on the SFP and read through the criteria for each.
2. Select the awards you are eligible to apply for and would like to be considered for.
3. Read all relevant application information for each award to make sure you fill out all required fields in the SFP. For example, some awards may ask you to describe your extra-curricular involvement by filling out the Personal Statement section of the SFP, others require an essay or reference letter as part of the application process.
4. Click on the “Save Work” button regularly as you go through the application to make sure you do not lose your information. You have 90 minutes per session before Passport York will automatically log you out of the SFP. At any time you may log out and log back in at a later date to make changes.
5. When you are ready click the “Submit” button at the end of the SFP to submit your application. If it is not submitted, your application will not be assessed. You may go back and make as many changes as you need before the submission deadline.
6. If you are a successful applicant, you will be notified by formal letter. All awards and scholarships will be credited to your student account online.
Making Changes to an Application
Once your application has been assessed (usually within six weeks of applying) you will no longer be able to make changes online, you will only be able to view your submitted application.
If you need to make changes to an assessed application, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you need assistance filling out the application, please see our online tutorial, contact us or come see us in York Hall C138.
