If you are taking distance education courses as part of your academic program, you may be eligible for government student loans to help pay for educational and living expenses. Depending on your financial need, you may also be eligible for other sources of funding such as:
- Emergency loans
Please contact Student Financial Assistance & Awards for more information about the above programs: http://students.ubc.ca/finance. If you are studying part-time, you may also be eligible for a combination of loans and grants to assist you with the cost of your education.
Distance education students are required to complete courses within a specified time frame. It is very important that you consider this before registering for a distance education course. For more information, please refer to the Course Load Requirements for Financial Assistance and Awards.
You need to confirm with a Financial Assistance and Awards advisor that:
- The end date of your OLT course complies with student loan regulations.
- Minimum credit-loan requirements for each term have been met.
