Canada student grant and loan
Part-time student grants and loans are available through StudentAidBC (SABC), to assist eligible B.C. residents studying on a part-time basis in an eligible BCIT program. Eligibility is also determined on the basis of assessed financial need.
All part-time students applying for financial assistance are required to be enrolled in an eligible BCIT program, leading to a BCIT certificate, diploma or degree. Students taking part-time studies courses must declare a program of study in order to qualify for funding.
Below you will find the list of BCIT part-time programs that are eligible and ineligible for Canada Student Grant and Loan funding through SABC.
If you cannot locate your program name on either list, contact the SFAA office.
The Part-Time Studies Application must be completed in ink and submitted to SFAA. No faxed or emailed copies will be accepted.
Please provide the 5-digit CRN (Course Reference Number) in the Course Number field when completing section 8 of 9 Study Information of the Part-Time Studies Application.
Students do not have to be registered in their courses to begin the application process; however, funds will not be released until you are registered.
If you are applying for financial assistance for the first time, you can submit your application before your program has been approved, as program declarations take approximately 6 - 8 weeks to process. However, your program declaration must be approved in order to qualify for future financial assistance.
Apprenticeship programs do NOT qualify for StudentAidBC funding. Please contact the Apprentice Services office for information on financial assistance.
