The Canada Student Loans Program is the financial assistance program in the form of loans and grants for eligible full and part-time students in most provinces and territories. The Government of Canada works with most provincial or territorial governments to deliver federal and provincial student loans and grants. Please note that students must apply for a provincial or territorial student loan through their province of residence and must meet all eligibility and residency requirements. Students are advised to apply early for government student loans, as it can take up to 12 weeks to process following receipt of the application.
Further information is available through the appropriate Provincial Student Loans Office (listed below) or by contacting the Financial Aid and Awards Advisor in CMCC's Division of Student Services. Additional information can be retrieved from the Canada Student Loans Program website.
Students who enroll at CMCC on a study permit who wish to apply for government financial aid must contact the Financial Aid and Awards Advisor to determine CMCC's eligibility to administer financial aid from their home country.
