Provincial and Federal Student Loans

Students accepted in our full time programs can apply for government student loans.  Nova Scotia students wishing to apply for student loans can visit the government web site at   Students who are not residents of Nova Scotia can obtain government student loan applications by contacting their provincial department of education.  Government student loans cannot be confirmed by an official of the Institute until the applicable registration date.

Please note that government student loan regulations state that students must maintain their full time student status throughout the academic year. Students who drop courses or do not attend on a regular basis may be ineligible to receive student loans or keep their interest-free status under the Canada Student Loan Program.
