Changes to Your Situation
You are responsible for notifying us as soon as possible after any change to your situation or the situation of your parents, sponsor or spouse (income, academic path, family status, etc.).
The change could affect the amount of your financial assistance.
If you neglect to notify us, you could become liable for the immediate repayment of any assistance overpayments or be disqualified for the Loans and Bursaries program and the Loans Program for Part-Time Studies for two years.
Situation change during the year
Situation changes that occur during the award year are counted as of the month that follows the change. Academic path changes are also counted as of the following month with respect to allowed expenses or accrued interest on your student loan.
A change that occurs during the year could lead to the amount of recalculated financial assistance becoming less than the previous amount, but also perhaps less than the amount already paid out. In the latter case, all or part of any overpayments could be recovered during the current or subsequent years. The recovery method depends on whether it takes place before or after the loan-to-bursary conversion.
Fill out the Declaration of Change form, which is available in Online Services, modifying the information you previously provided in your Application for Financial Assistance.
