All new full-time applicants will need to have their identity verified prior to accessing the student loan application via their online StudentAid BC dashboard (you are considered a new applicant if you have not previously received funding from StudentAid BC).
Applicants will be required to log into their StudentAid BC dashboard using their BC Services Card to access the student loan application.
Applicants now have three options to verify their identity:
- 1 Have a short video call with Service BC
- 2Send a video to Service BC
- 3 In-person at a Service BC Centre

Note: Part-time students do not need to have their identity verified prior to applying for student financial assistance. More information on How to apply as a part-time student.
