Prince Edward Island Student Loans
Prince Edward Islandís student loans are designed to provide financial assistance if you canít afford, but wish to attend a post-secondary institution. The federal and provincial governments approve loans to help in your studies under the criteria agreed upon by the two levels of government. You, however, are mainly responsible for paying for your own education through careful planning, summer jobs and savings. Assistance will be issued on the basis of your calculated need. Under the Student Loan Program, parents and spouses may also be expected to contribute financially to your education. To determine your financial need, resources available to you and your family, if applicable, are subtracted from your total education costs.
To qualify for assistance under the Prince Edward Island Student Loan Program, you must:
- Be a Canadian citizen or have permanent resident status.
- Be a resident of Prince Edward Island.
- Demonstrate that your financial resources arenít enough to meet your educational and living costs during the time you are in school.
