NAIT Financial Aid
Financial aid at NAIT consists of loans and grants. The process of applying for financial aid can be confusing, but we have made it easy by providing you with a "one-stop shop" for information and applications. Menu items on the left side of the pages can be used to explore the financial resources that are available to you as a full-time, part-time, or apprenticeship student at NAIT.

Alberta Works funding - Full-Time and Part-Time funding (ESL and Academic Upgrading) for the Spring 2015 term has been depleted. If you would like to explore Alberta Works funding for Fall 2015, you must submit a NAIT Alberta Works Assessment form May 25, 2015 or after. Once the assessment has been reviewed you will be contacted via email advising you of your next steps. Please Note - Alberta Works Skills Investment funding is limited, provided on a first come, first served basis and each eligible program has a limited number of seats. Funding must be approved prior to training start date therefore so Students must apply early with complete documentation or they will not be considered.
