Important Changes to Financial Aid and Awards

August 03, 2011

Two significant changes are coming this fall in SFU’s Financial Aid and Awards office.

Changes to Student Loans for BC Students
The governments of Canada and BC are integrating their full-time student financial assistance programs (Canada Student Loans and BC Student Loans) to simplify your borrowing experience. Whether you have previous BC student loans or you are a first-time applicant, you will be affected. For further information, see

Changes to Work-Study and Bursary Assessments
Financial Aid and Awards will be implementing changes to the bursary and Work-study assessment processes to address the growing financial need of our students.  This may affect your funding eligibility. Application period:  August 29–September 16, 2011.
