You MUST apply as early as possible for student loan funding!
To apply for BC Student Loans go to: www.studentaidbc.ca and apply now for the Fall (September) 2019 term.
The B.C. Ministry of Education pays tuition and fees directly to Langara College from all approved BC/Canada Student Loan funds (daycare fees are exempt from this direct payment). There are maximum amounts that can be requested from term to term, so students are responsible for ensuring the amount sent to Langara College from the B.C. Ministry of Education is enough to cover their tuition and fees. Please make sure to check your account balance through your myLangara account. If the student loan funding is insufficient to cover tuition and fees, students must pay the difference.
Students must also pay the College or be refunded, when there are subsequent changes to study costs, resulting from adding or dropping courses.
In order to be eligible for a fee deferral and avoid being dropped from your courses for non-payment, you must qualify under one of the following categories:
Fee Deferral Categories
Students who have received approvals for their BC/Canada Student Loans:
- If you receive approval before 2100 hours on August 16, 2019 an automatic fee deferral for tuition and fees will be processed and you will not be dropped from your courses.
- Log in to myLangara, under ‘Account Balance & Payments’, to check if this deferral is in place.
