Student Loans

Most BC Career Colleges Association members are designated for student loans and have information on applying on-campus. When viewing our list of member schools, be sure to look for the Student Loans symbol (the golden apple in the centre of the tree). It is the indicator that financial aid may be available to eligible students.

Government Grants

Students at designated schools may also be eligible for government grants. These are awarded to eligible students as a non-repayable portion of a Canada or BC student loan. These grants and loans are designed to reduce the amount of the student loan you must repay at the end of your program of study. Grants are only available to students who have taken at least eight months of full-time post-secondary education.
