Additional Grants for Adult Learners Enrolling in Post-Secondary Education

Released on July 18, 2018


Students enrolling in post-secondary studies after several years away from school are eligible to access all student loan and grant programs through the Canada-Saskatchewan Integrated Student Loan program.  There are new features to the program that help eligible adult learners pay for post-secondary education.

These include:
  • $200 per month in additional grant money for full-time students who have been out of high school for at least 10 years;
  • A person who has lost their job or experienced a drop in income may qualify for additional assistance and may have their current income used to assess Canada Student Grant eligibility; and
  • Ability to request grants-only funding and decline the loans portion.
“Our government understands that returning to post-secondary education after several years away can be challenging,” Advanced Education Minister Tina Beaudry-Mellor said.  “We hope that these additional grants and features will make it easier for adult learners to pursue post-secondary education.”

There are also additional features to the Canada-Saskatchewan Integrated Student Loan program to benefit adult learners with dependants.
  • Full-time or part-time students with dependant children may be eligible for monthly living allowances based on their income and the number and age of their children, which will include a monthly allowance for daycare.  These students may also receive additional grants for being students with dependants; and
  • Students with children do not have to make the fixed student contribution.
Students can now submit their student financial assistance applications for the 2018-19 student loan year for academic programs beginning on or after August 1, 2018.  Students are encouraged to apply early.
