Basic eligibility requirements


To receive student financial assistance, you must meet all of these basic eligibility criteria:

NOTES:

All information submitted as part of your application, including information provided by your parents or spouse/common-law partner in appendices, is subject to verification.

Have you and/or your parent(s)/step parent/sponsor/legal guardian or spouse/common-law partner (if applicable) filed your Canadian income taxes? Income information from the Canada Revenue Agency is used to calculate your financial need when applying for StudentAid BC funding. Your previous year’s Canadian income tax information will be used in the assessment of your financial need. If you and/or your parent(s)/step parent/sponsor/legal guardian or spouse/common-law partner (if applicable) haven’t filed your previous year’s income taxes, processing of your StudentAid BC application may be delayed while your income is verified.

You can only apply to one province for funding.

You may not be eligible if you are:

  • Delinquent or in default of previous student loans.
  • Restricted from receiving StudentAid BC funding or have an overaward (in this case your funding may be withheld), or
  • Incarcerated or have any outstanding warrants for your arrest.
