I need part-time student financial assistance

Apply for a part-time student loan

If you are studying part-time at a designated post-secondary institution in Canada you may be eligible for the federal part-time student loan program.

Students apply for student financial assistance to where they lived for at least 12 months in a row, not including time as a full-time post-secondary student.

The assessment for part-time students is also different than for full-time students. The part-time student loan program does not cover living costs. It allows for:

  • tuition,
  • books,
  • supplies,
  • transportation, and
  • child care up to the funding maximums.
