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 do not have to provide us with the amount of these expenses, as they are automatically determined based on your personal situation.
Other expenses may be reimbursed. You must apply for them.
Allowable additional expenses are:
Medication and chiropractic expenses for you or your dependent children provided that these expenses are not fully covered by the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec or by your insurance. You must complete a Declaration of Change .
You could receive an additional amount of $500 per term. This amount is awarded in the form of a loan and must be repaid at the end of your studies. It allows for the purchase of additional educational materials such as a computer. You can request this at the time you apply for loans and bursaries, or later on by completing a Declaration of Change .
