Students who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents are eligible to apply for student loans. Some convention refugees are also eligible. Application forms for Canada Student Loans and for loans available from the Canadian provinces and territories may be obtained from the Student Financial Aid and Information Centre, Students’ Union Building.
Many loan application packages include a form that must be completed by the institution the student is or will be attending. (Example: Appendix 3 of the British Columbia Student Assistance Program.) Students applying for a loan through the Ontario Student Assistance Program must complete their Program Information form on-line. The form is printed and mailed to the student. Departments should not complete or sign any loan forms received but should forward them to the FGSR. The FGSR will complete these forms on behalf of the institution.
Once a loan has been approved, the student will be mailed loan certificates from the Canada Student Loan program and the Provincial Student Loan program. These include Schedule 1 and Form A. Refer students with these forms to the Fees Section, Financial Services, for authorized signatures. Students must be registered full-time in both Fall and Winter terms in order to have their loan forms signed.
Interest-Free Status forms, such as Schedule 2 and Form B, must be obtained from the FGSR and be completed by the student. Students should return these forms to the FGSR, where they will be reviewed for approval.
For further information about student loans, refer students to the Student Financial Aid and Information Centre.
