Student Loan Information

StudentAid BC + Canada Student Loans


Full-time Students

Canadian students requiring financial assistance to help meet their educational expenses may apply for a Canada Student Loan. Applications are made to the province in which the student is a resident. If you are a BC resident, you would apply to StudentAid BC.

Canada Student Loan assistance is awarded on the basis of financial need and information provided by the students, parents and/or spouse.

Students are encouraged to apply online in early July to avoid late payment charges to the College. Review information on applying for a loan in the 2017-2018 academic year for important details for your loan application including important dates and course load guides.


Paying Back Your loan

The loans are interest-free while the student is registered full-time at a university. Payment begins six months after the student withdraws or ceases full-time study. It is the student’s responsibility to inform the National Student Loan Service Centre of their enrolment if they wish to maintain this interest-free status.


Course Withdrawal

Any full-time student who, after applying for a student loan, changes their course load and would subsequently drop to part-time status should contact an academic advisor prior to withdrawing from these courses. Changes to your course load may disqualify you from funding and/or result in overawards.

If you are taking courses at another institution to supplement your courses at Corpus Christi College, you must notify the Financial Aid Office. Failure to notify the Financial Aid Office of your entire course load can negatively impact your funding.


Part-time Students

Part-time Canadian students requiring financial assistance may apply for a Part-Time Canada Student Loan. If you are a BC resident, you would apply to StudentAid BC.

These interest-bearing loans are calculated on the basis of the student’s financial situation and cover basic university expenses such as tuition, books, and childcare. Repayments of these loans begin thirty (30) days from the date on which the loan was negotiated.
