February 22: Financial Awards Application

Start your Briercrest College Financial Award application TODAY!


Step 1: Apply for college

  • We have received your college application already, so you are eligible to apply for awards.
  • You must have a Preliminary or Full Acceptance by the award application deadline to receive any awards. If you haven’t already submitted your high school transcripts, get that to me before the award application deadline. (first deadline for most awards: March 5; final deadline: April 30).

Step 2: See which awards are available.

Step 3: Apply for awards.

  • The application form is on Briercrest Live. You should have received an email with information for setting up a Briercrest Live account. If you can’t find a record of that communication, please let us know.
  • Once you sign in to Briercrest Live, click on Finance, then College Scholarships and Awards Application. Follow the instructions and find the link at the bottom that says Click here to go to the Financial Assistance Application Form.

Helpful hint: You can start the application and finish it later. However, to avoid complications, you MUST use the same browser on the same computer, and DON’T complete the application on your phone (unfortunately the application is not mobile friendly).


Good news: There is only one application form for all the awards! That is 45 minutes of time well-spent!


Let us know if you have any questions!

March 19: Here for you

The Admissions Team is here for you! We are available either by email or phone during regular office hours.


For up-to-date information on how we are responding to COVID-19 please refer to


For those who are in the application process: we can process a preliminary acceptance with unofficial transcripts or documents with your grade 11 marks and a list of all your grade 12 classes. This can be a screen shot from your student portal, a picture or an unofficial transcript from your high school office. We can also review post-secondary transcripts this way. This would allow you to proceed to confirmation and course registration. Your admission status is upgraded to full acceptance once we have your final and official transcripts. Please let us know if you are unable to access this information.


Grade 12’s: we understand that there is a lot of uncertainty for you at this time, as provinces and school divisions make decisions about the current school year. Please know that we will work with you to figure out your transition to College. Our goal as always is to set you up best to meet your educational goals and have you be a part of our student body.
