How do I verify my identity?

All new full-time applicants will need to set up the BC Services Card app. During set up, you will be required to verify your identity online via the app or in-person at a Service BC Centre to access the student loan application via the 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 the BC Services Card app to access the student loan application.

Note: Part-time students do not need to have their identity verified prior to applying for student financial assistance. The ID verification process is completed through a separate process. More information on How to apply as a part-time student.
