The Alberta Student Aid program provides financial aid in the form of student loans, grants, scholarships, and awards to individuals who are enrolled in eligible schools.

This benefit is available to both full-time and part-time students. However, please note that any student loans received will need to be repaid.

To qualify for student aid, you must:

  • Maintain academic progress.
  • Meet residency or citizenship requirements.
  • Have financial need.
  • Be enrolled in a program approved by Student Aid.

Use the Student Financial Assistance Estimator to predict roughly how much money you can receive.

  • confirmation of SIN letter
  • plastic SIN card (non-expired)

Full-time students need a Student Aid account to apply online. Use your account to access your inbox, where you’ll receive important messages from Student Aid. For part-time students, this account is optional. You will also receive important messages by mail.

The process of applying for student aid is different for full-time and part-time students:

  • Full time students submit their application online through their Student Aid account.
  • Part-time student must complete the part-time application form and follow the instruction on the form.
