Government Student Loans

Canada Student Loans

Providence University College is designated as an eligible institution under the Canada Student Loan Act and the United States Direct Loan Program.  Repayment of a loan begins six months after graduation, or six months after the student completes his/her academic work if it is prior to graduation. Students, however, are urged to keep their borrowing as low as possible, remembering that after graduation these loans must be repaid at a time when other financial obligations may be heavy.

Students should apply for Canada Student Loans at least eight weeks prior to registration to ensure adequate processing time.

U.S. Direct Loan Program

The U.S. Department of Education has approved Providence University College for purposes of the Direct Loan Program (Subsidized, Unsubsidized & PLUS Loans). The institutional code number to be used on loan application forms is G12274.  Students are encouraged to apply for a student loan using the Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) website at www.fafsa.ed.gov.  Please notify your admissions counsellor if you have completed the FAFSA.

The U.S. Department of Education requires Providence to notify Direct Loan recipients of our Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) and Return of Title IV Funds (R2T4) Policies.  Please click here for the SAP/R2T4 Policies.

Once you have completed your FAFSA, please Set Up An Account at our Virtual Financial Aid Office (VFAO). You will need to fill out an interview as part of creating your account. Once you have done so, you'll be able to check on your loan status through VFAO - and so will we!
