How do I know if my program is eligible for a student loan?

Student at industrial classroomDeciding what you want to do for a career for the rest of your life can be overwhelming. The last thing you want to worry about are the fine details of student loan eligibility so we’re here to help make it easier for you!

The Government of Canada has a list of designated educational institutions on its website that’s an easy and effective tool for you to find out if your post-secondary program is eligible for an education loan. Once you click on the province you’ll be attending post-secondary education in, you can scroll through the alphabetical list to see if your educational institution meets the criteria for a student loan.

At Affinity, we also follow the Government of Canada’s designated educational institutions list therefore, if your school is on the list, come chat with us about setting up your education loan. Give us a shout at 1.866.863.6237 or visit us at an advice centre near you.

Whether you’re attending post-secondary education for the first time or have decided to go back for your master’s degree, we have a loan for you! For more information on education loans that Affinity Credit Union offers, check out our Education Loans webpage.

Although we can’t make studying easier, we can help you budget for student life!
