How much can I get?
When you apply, StudentAid BC will determine how much you’ll receive by comparing your educational costs and living expenses with the amount you and your family (where applicable) are expected to contribute.

For the 2017/2018 program year, if you have dependent children, you can receive up to $510 per week in combined loan and grant funding for full-time studies. If you do not have dependent children, you can receive up to $320 per week of full-time study. The total amount you receive will be determined by your total assessed need, the type of award funding you are eligible to receive, the maximum funding available and the length of your study period.
