What options are available for Canadian students to cover the cost of optometry school in the US?

Hi all, I was wondering if there are any Canadian students that could share how they are able to finance the full 4-year program and which school offers the best support for Canadians. I am aware that I can take a line of credit and provincial student loans but to my knowledge, these won't be enough to cover the full cost of the program.

That's pretty much what are being offered for Canadians to my knowledge. The schools do not offer financial support to Canadians only. Everyone has to pay the same out of state tuition (if you live out of state of course). However, the difference is Canadians have to go through the currency exchange/conversion rate from USD to CAD, that's what hurts you.
