Government Student Loans


Government 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.
