Government student aid
Government student financial assistance programs have many rules and regulations. Please note that government assistance is not available to all programs of study at Concordia University.
If you have any questions, visit our office so that we can help you determine your individual eligibility for government assistance and/or advise on whether or not your program of study is eligible.
Our role with respect to student aid is to:
- Inform you of your eligibility requirements, policies and procedures.
- Assist governments in administering the student aid by confirming your registration status and disbursing monies to students.
- Conduct revisions to your file if you have cause to believe that an error has been made in your assessment or your situation has changed.
- Help you make optimal use of your available financial resources throughout your studies.
Please remember: to receive government aid you must apply every year and apply early – a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks before the beginning of the semester.
