Financial Assistance for Unfunded Students

Students who are neither Canadian citizens nor permanent residents (landed immigrants) are generally not eligible for funding through the Alberta Government.

Exchange students and international students are encouraged to contact us before registering in courses.

School-aged First Nation or Métis Nation students who have official treaty status and live on a reserve may be eligible for funding through the First or Métis Nation educational offices. Check with your local office for details.
