We have students from all over Canada attend SSU. If you are a Canadian citizen, a permanent resident of Canada or designated as a protected person, you can apply for federal and provincial funding through your home province. Eligibility for this funding is subject to family income and other factors that help determine financial need through the Canada Student Loan application process.

The government pays the interest on your loan while you’re in school. You are not responsible to make principal payments on your loan until six months after you graduate or stop being a full time student.

If you choose to fund your education with the assistance of government student loans, you should begin the application process at the beginning of June. This should allow enough time to have everything approved and ready for September. The Finance Office will need a copy of your student loan assessment by registration day in order to know how much funding you’ll be receiving from student loans, or you will be responsible to pay your fees by other means.

SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS

 

A student must maintain a 2.0 GPA and complete at least 60% of a full course load (40% for students with permanent disabilities) in order to be eligible for full time student loan funding. The time requirement for completion of a four year diploma is within a six year period.

CANADA STUDENT GRANTS PROGRAM

 

Canadian students who receive a Canada Student Loan will automatically be considered for a Canada Student Grant.
