After You Apply:

Once your application is assessed and if eligible, you will receive:

  • A Notice of Assessment by mail that will give you details on how much funding you will receive and it will also include your 10 digit Master Student Financial Assistance Agreement (MSFAA) number that has been issued to you.
  • Within two to three business days of receiving your Notice of Assessment, you will receive a “Welcome Email” from the National Student Loans Service Centre (NSLSC) inviting you to register for your online account with the NSLSC and complete your Master Student Financial Assistance Agreement (MSFAA) in order to receive funding.
  • A MSFAA is a multi-year Agreement. Your responsibilities and the terms and conditions of accepting and repaying your student loans are outlined in your online MSFAA.  While you still have to apply for funding each year, you normally won’t have to complete your MSFAA online and provide banking information each time you are awarded student financial assistance.
  • Once the NSLSC has a completed MSFAA on file and your enrolment has been confirmed with your educational institution, your funding will be deposited into your bank account.  Normally funding is issued in two disbursements; the first near the beginning of your academic year and the second at the mid-point of your academic year.

Application for Part-Time Study:

Apply as soon as you know the program you wish to attend.  You must have the Educational Institution where you plan to pursue your studies complete the appropriate section of the Part-Time Student Loan and Grant Application before you submit it. Your completed application form, with all required information, must be received a minimum of four weeks before the start date of your program in order to receive funding by the time your classes begin.

Once your application is processed and you are eligible for funding, you will recieve a letter indicating the amount of your assistance.  A Certificate of Eligibility for Part-Time Student Loans and Grants along with a Canada Student Financial Assistance Agreement for Part-Time Students is mailed to your educational institution if studying in New Brunswick.
