    Student Loans & Grants

    • Students enrolled in eligible programs can apply for a variety of government assistance, including student loans and grants.  These forms of funding are offered to both full-time and part-time students.

    • What is considered full-time studies?

      BC Residents: students who are enrolled in at least 60% of a full-time courseload in a student loan eligible program are considered to be studying full-time for student loan purposes.  At Capilano University, this means in a minimum of 9 credits at the 100-level or higher (15 credits is considered to be a 100% courseload).  Your courseload cannot include any courses for which you have previously received credit (no repeat courses).  Note: students with a recognized permanent disability (who have been approved through StudentAid BC) must be enrolled in at least a 40% of a full time courseload (6 credits).   

      Out of Province Residents: Definitions for full-time studies vary for each province.  To determine the definition for your province of residence, please go to your province's student loans website.  For a listing of these websites, see the Out of Province Residents (Full Time & Part Time) section.  

      What is considered part-time studies?

      BC Residents: students who are enrolled in 3 - 8.5 credits at the 100-level or higher in an eligible program at Capilano University are considered to be studying part-time for student loan and grant purposes.  Note: students with a recognized permanent disability (who have been approved through StudentAid BC) who are enrolled in a minimum of 6 credits can be considered to be studying full-time; to discuss your options, please contact us.  

      Out of Province Residents: Definitions fo part-time studies vary for each province.  To determine the definition for your province of residence, please go to your province's student loans website.  For a listing of these websites, see the Out of Province Residents (Full Time & Part Time) section.
