To stay eligible for StudentAid BC loans or grants, you must attend school full-time for the entire study period for which you have received funding.
If you drop below the required course load during your first semester/term but plan to attend full-time in the second semester/term, you must submit a new application for student assistance. Your new application will be assessed once the withdrawal process at your school is complete.
If you stop attending classes, drop below your required course load, or fail to maintain the minimum number of weekly instructional hours for non-academic programs for your entire study period, but you do not formally withdraw from school, you may still be considered withdrawn for student assistance purposes.
You will be considered withdrawn if:
- You miss two consecutive weeks of study (no attendance), or
- You drop below 60% of a full-time course load for three consecutive weeks of study, or
- You miss enough classes that school officials feel you cannot successfully complete the program
If you withdraw from school two times while receiving B.C. student financial assistance, you will be denied further funding by StudentAid BC.
