Manage Your Student Loan

Maintaining your eligibility

After you have obtained your money and are attending classes, you must do the following to keep your interest-free status and stay eligible:

  • Continue to be enrolled in 60% or more of a full course load each semester (40% for students with a permanent disability). Your school determines what is a full course load for each term or semester of each study period;
  • Achieve successful completion; and
  • Maintain regular attendance. If your attendance drops below 90% or you miss more than three consecutive weeks (21 calendar days), you will be considered discontinued for student loan purposes. Your study period will be considered unsuccessful.

You will be considered discontinued if you drop below the minimum required course load for the following reasons:

  • You withdraw from studies on your own accord;
  • You change schools; or
  • You are expelled.

When you are done school it is your responsibility to: 

  • Contact the school regarding tuition refunds if you discontinue; and
  • Repay your student loans. 

Please see the Canada-Saskatchewan Integrated Student Loan Handbook for further information on maintaining your eligibility while in school.

Changes to your personal, financial, or academic circumstances - While you are in school these may affect the amount of assistance you are eligible to receive. You must report any changes to the Student Service Centre immediately. Changes will result in a reassessment of your assistance.

  • Changes to your scholarship or educational funding
  • Changes to your spouse's information
  • Change in your marital status, family name, or family size
  • Dropping or adding classes, specifically dropping from full-time to part-time enrolment

Changes for future events (i.e., marriage, having a child, etc.) - Report changes only after they occur.
