Student Loans

Apply online through your provincial student loan webpage

Submit application by early July for funds to be available by the start of school.

Follow the instructions from your province and check the guide we've posted on our finance webpage.

Briercrest will request the maximum allowable funds be released to the school to simplify payment.

NOTE: It is unlikely that student loan disbursements will cover your school costs. Be prepared to supplement with your own funds.
