If you have a student debt that is administered by the Collection Department

Don't forget that you are still responsible for your student debt, even if the Ministère guaranteed the loan. If you fail to repay your financial institution, the Ministère will honour its loan guarantee, but in turn it will become your creditor.  You will then owe your debt to the Ministère.  You will be required to make a new repayment agreement with the person incharge of your file at the Collection Department of Aide financière aux études. You will be able to choose how to repay your student loan debt: preauthorized debt, cheque, electronic payment or bank/postal money order.

By preauthorized debit

If you opt for payment by preauthorized debit, you will need to fill out the "Application for preauthorized debit" form that is available in your Aide financière aux études Internet Student File.

Alternatively, you can print, fill out and sign the Authorization to Use Preauthorized Debit-Repayment Agreement This hyperlink will open in a new window. then mail it to us with a void cheque.
