We encourage you to apply online to receive an immediate assessment based on the information you provide. Also, the processing time is faster than a paper-based application.
An application will NOT be processed if:
Note: A complete application is one which includes all required documentation.
If you are attending school for both the first and second semesters (e.g., fall and winter) but require assistance for the second semester only, a needs assessment will be conducted for the first semester to determine if there are any unused resources that could be applied toward the second semester.
You must submit an Income Confirmation Form for your pre-study period and advise the Student Financial Services Division of any earnings you received during the first semester. If you attend an educational institution other than Memorial University, Marine Institute or College of the North Atlantic, you are required to confirm your status as a full-time student for the first semester. You are also required to submit a Program Cost Form for that semester.
If you requested assistance for the previous two semesters (e.g., fall and winter) and require assistance for the third semester (e.g. summer) within the same academic year, you must submit a Supplementary Application Form which is available online at http://www.aes.gov.nl.ca/studentaid/apply/2012_13_supplementary_application_form.pdf (263 KB) or at the Student Financial Services Division.
If you are applying for assistance for the first time in the academic year, you are required to submit a full application.
Student financial assistance is available for periods of study of less than 12 weeks duration (but not less than 6 weeks), provided the study period requested is an extension of a program of study which itself is at least 12 weeks in duration. In these situations, you must submit a completed application no later than 2 weeks after the start of classes. All other conditions remain the same (see inside back cover of this guide).
For a 6-week period of study, you are encouraged to submit your application well in advance of the start of classes to ensure timely processing.
The deadline for appeals is four weeks prior to the end of the period of study.
