B.C. access grant for students with permanent disabilities

This program helps full-time students with a permanent disability with the cost of education by replacing approximately $1,000 in B.C. student loan funding.

Am I eligible?

You may be eligible if you:

  • qualify for a federal student loan
  • are enrolled in a full-time program at a designated public or private post-secondary institution
  • have a permanent disability as defined by the Canada Student Financial Assistance Program

How do I apply?


  • You will be automatically assessed for the B.C. access grant if you have previously submitted verification of your permanent disability to StudentAid BC.
  • If you have not yet established your permanent disability with StudentAid BC, complete the Appendix 8 form.
