Effective August 1, 2023, StudentAid BC will enhance the BC Repayment Assistance Plan (BC RAP) eligibility by increasing the income threshold for when a student loan payment is not required from $25,000 per year to $40,000 per year for a single person, and higher depending on your family size. This threshold will also be indexed annually to inflation. BC RAP will also be lowering the maximum payment required from 20% to 10% of family income. If you’re receiving support through RAP, you can contact the National Student Loans Service Centre (NSLSC) for more information.
