Canada Student loans
Your Provincial Student loans may consist of both Provincial and National loans. To manage your Canada Student loans you can access the National Student Loans Service Centre.
Beginning November 1, the Government of Canada will ease the rules on its Repayment Assistance Plan by ensuring that no single borrower will be required to make any repayment until he or she is earning at least $25,000 per year. Please note that to be eligible for this you need to apply for the Repayment Assistance Plan.
If you are receiving financial support through a government sponsorship, please meet with an Academic Advisor at the Student Service Centre with the approved documentation prior to tuition deadline. For questions other than financial sponsorship, please contact NAIT’s International Centre.
