Funding

Students diagnosed with a permanent disability may be eligible for funding from both Alberta Student Aid and Canada Student Aid. This extra funding can be used in a variety of ways, including funding for equipment such as a laptop, reading pen, assistive technology, and more.  In order to apply, documentation must be recent, stating a permanent diagnosis, along with limitations or specific accommodations. It is best to start the application early to ensure it arrives when you begin the school year. Student Aid Alberta recommends submitting the application two months before your start date.

More information, along with the Schedule 4 application, can be found on the Alberta Student Aid website. Keep in mind that the application needs to be filled out in conjunction with the Accessibility Services Specialist. 

If you have general questions and inquiries about Alberta Student Aid, please contact the Student Aid Officer at info@oldscollege.ca.
