  1. Maximum Funding Limit. The amount of Student Loans given to you is not primarily dependent on the cost of training, but on the duration of your studies, your income, if you have dependent children and other factors. Student Aid BC gives up to: $510 per week for students with dependent children, $320 per week for students without dependent children. In provincial and federal funding combined, loan and grants. The amount above is given for low income students. If you have income above appx. 24 000/year, this amount would be reduced.

  2. Re-applying. If you were a full-time student for the duration of the selected program, but have not completed your studies, you can reapply for student loans for the same program again. You usually receive again the same amount for the same duration.
  3. Grants. If you are enrolled in a multi-year program (i.e. Diploma Program) for a minimum of 2 years, and you are from a low-income family, you may receive up to $375/month of non-refundable grants. It means that this portion of the student loan, i.e. up to $4500/year, would not need to be paid back. Students with dependent children can receive additional grant. Students with disabilities may receive additional grant of up to $2000/year.
  4. Interest Free Status. You do not pay interest on your Student Loan as long as long you are a full time student and another 6 months after your successful graduation. If you have prior Student Loans, and you go back to school, your interest free status is reinstated even for the prior Student Loans received.
  5. Full vs. Part Time. If you have a disability, your course load may be reduced to 60% (i.e. 9 hours/week) and still be considered full time. Your grant funds (those that do not need to be paid back) is also increased, depending on the disability.
