Complete your Application for Loans and Bursaries

You can usually complete your application starting in May for the upcoming school year, which runs from September 1 to August 31. Be sure to apply in advance to obtain your financial assistance at the beginning of the school year.

  • Your social insurance number.
  • The codes for your financial institution and your program of study.
  • Your income or an estimate of your income for the year (from January 1 to December 31).

Other information may be required, such as a date of a marriage or the birth of a child.

You have 45 days to send us the required documents. You can either upload them in your online file or send them to us by mail. No documents will be accepted after December 29 following the end of the school year.
