What is the rehabilitation after bankruptcy appeal process?

After you submit your application, StudentAid BC will determine:

  • if there are exceptional circumstances that led to your bankruptcy and that warrant waiving standard StudentAid BC policy
  • that you have made a reasonable effort to rehabilitate yourself financially since bankruptcy (unless you are in school and applying for conditional rehabilitation)
  • that you have clear goals and a focus for your career
  • that your academic standing in your present or previous program of study is successful and warrants consideration for further funding to continue your education.

The case review unit meets monthly. Once the committee has considered your request for rehabilitation after bankruptcy, a letter will be sent to you confirming the decision.

The case review unit's recommendation on rehabilitation after bankruptcy are final. However, if you are denied rehabilitation and you have more supporting documentation that was not provided in the initial application that you think may change the recommendation of the committee, you can submit a new rehabilitation after bankruptcy application with all previous and added supporting documents and details of your bankruptcy circumstances for the committee to consider at a future date.
