You will need to apply for your student financial assistance and submit your Loan Study Plan 3 to 4 months in advance of your intended semester start date.
Advising Services can help you to ensure you are requesting the applicable courses for your program of study.
AU Financial Aid Advisors will complete your Program Information Form for you and submit it directly to your funding agency. In order to complete this form you will need to submit a Loan Study Plan four months prior to your intended study period start date.
The exception is the Form D for Northwest Territories. Contact SFA inquiry if this applies to you.
Please refer to the section titled ‘Cashing Your Student Loan’ - Once your documents are in place, whether via the Master Student Loan Agreement or paper student loan certificate, the applicable student loan service provider will normally disburse the funds directly to your bank account by direct deposit.
Upon receipt of your student loan approval, AU Financial Aid staff will register you in your selected courses as indicated on your Loan Study Plan. The Loan Study Plan will act as your course registration. No further registration steps will be required for you.
If your tuition fees are outstanding at the time AU confirms your attendance for your student loan, AU will request that the applicable tuition amount is remitted directly to the University on your behalf.
You may change your course selections only up to the time that your loan approval and subsequent course registrations are in place. You should consult with the AU Student Financial Aid Advisor to see if this situation applies to you.
Once your loan is approved the Provincial Funding Agencies do not allow revisions to the period study. The current application and Loan Study Plan has to be cancelled and a new application and Loan Study Plan will be required.
Please refer to the section titled ‘Course Extensions in the Helpful Hints’ section of the Financial Aid web site.
Please refer to the section titled ‘Course Withdrawals’ in the Helpful Hints’ section of the Financial Aid web site.
It matters if you are applying for or receiving a Government Student Loan to attend AU. Please refer to the Financial Aid section of the Office of the Registrar web site.
Alternate funding resources may be available to you. Please see the Access to Students with Disabilities web site for information.
