Students enrolled in other programs at Capilano University who are registered in one or more classes that are below the 100-level may also be able to access AUG funding.
If you received AUG for a course before, and did not complete the course, you cannot receive AUG again to support the costs of that same course.If you received AUG for a course before, completed the course but received an "F" grade, you may be eligible to receive AUG one additional time to support up to 50% of the tuition fees only for that same course.If you stop attending your course(s), withdraw twice from course(s), or fail to demonstrate satisfactory progress in your education while funded by AUG, you will no longer qualify for AUG for enrolment in any courses.

If you are enrolled in developmental courses (below the 100-level) and post secondary courses (100-level or higher) at the same time, the type(s) of funding you are eligible to apply for depend on your courseload.
