After your administrative registration and depending on your situation, you can apply for social assistance and/or exemption from tuition fees.
The application procedure for full exemption from tuition fees and/or social assistance is filed on an online platform and is entirely paperless.
No paper applications will be accepted.
Before filing your application for exemption and/or social assistance, you must follow the steps below.
Applications are reviewed as they are recieved, by monthly commissions.
It takes about 30-40 minutes to fill in the application, provided you have all the required supporting documents. We recommend that you check the FAW to determine the documents required as proof of resources (income) and expenses.
Fill in your application, within the deadline, carefully following the instructions given, screen by screen. In order for your application to be validated, you must continue through to the last screen.
Warning: if you are accidentally disconnected or if you do not complete the procedure, the information entered will not be kept.
You can ask the Student Life Centre for assistance with the online application. Computer stations are available at their helpdesks.
Once you have filed your application on the platform, notification of your application submission will be sent to you by e-mail as well as an anonymous ID number to be kept as you will need it for the rest of the procedure.
The Student Life Centres, in charge of processing the applications, check your application and the supporting documents provided.
If the application is incomplete, additional documents will be requested within 8 days. Without the additional documents, your application will not be reviewed by the commission.
You should make an appointment in advance. If you have not already done so, you should make an appointment with a social worker to assess your social situation.
You are strongly advised to make an appointment with a social worker as soon as possible, as soon as you start your application process. To do so, you must have the anonymous ID number received in the notification e-mail.
After your situation has been assessed by a social worker, your complete application is reviewed anonymously by a commission.
The commissions meet twice monthly.
You will receive notification by e-mail to collect the decision letter at the Student Life Centre on your campus.
If your application has been approved, there are no further steps to take.
No information is given by phone.
Before submitting your application, make sure you have checked the different steps above.
You can also consult the regulatory texts related to the forms of assistance and/or exemption to check your eligibility.
