Allowable expenses

Allowable expenses under the Program are those deemed necessary for the pursuit of your studies. They are recognized for each month in which you are pursuing full-time studies.

The main allowable expenses are:

  • tuition fees and related expenses (registration, admission and fees related to instructional services, textbooks, school supplies, etc.)
  • living expenses (housing, food, personal expenses, public transit, special transportation costs)
  • children’s living expenses and childcare expenses as well as expenses for single‑parent families

You can request this at the time you apply for loans and bursaries, or later on by completing a Declaration of Change (PDF 158 Kb).
