Contact one of our scholarship plan representatives. With their expert knowledge of RESPs, our representatives guide you through the process of setting up an RESP suited to your situation, needs, and goals as an investor.

What are my options if my beneficiary does not pursue a post-secondary education?

With Universitas Financial, the return of your investment (contributions) is 100% guaranteed once your plan reaches maturity.5

Subject to certain conditions, if your child does not pursue a post-secondary education, you have the following options:

  • Transfer the RESP to another child
  • Transfer the earned income to an RRSP
  • Withdraw the earned income (known as an accumulated income payment, or AIP)

Contact us for all the details.

Are there fees to open an RESP?

Yes. Universitas must charge fees to ensure the sound management of your RESP, as with any financial product. Fees are disclosed and explained in detail at the time you set up your plan and sign a contract.

Although our fee structure differs from that of banking institutions, the total fees collected over the plan's life are standard for the industry. Ultimately, investors must consider these fees in relation to the RESP’s risk level and performance, how disciplined they want to be in saving, and what other financial services are included.

Remember that if you have a group plan (REFLEX or UNIVERSITAS), an amount equal to the total sales charges paid is refunded to you when your plan reaches maturity. The full refund of sales charges at plan maturity is an exclusive Universitas Financial advantage.

See our prospectus for everything you need to know about our RESPs and their applicable fees.
