Loans are available for students studying part-time at UBC. To be considered a part-time student, you must be registered in 20-59% of the full-time load listed for your program, which you can check on the Course Load Guide.
Not all programs are eligible for part-time funding. You must be in a program approved for full-time student loans. Contact Enrolment Services to check if your program is approved.
Part-time funding is suitable for you if:
- You need support for educational expenses like tuition, books, and transportation
- You require assistance in paying for childcare while attending school
- You are recognized by StudentAid BC with permanent disabilities status (Students with 40-59% of a full course load and have permanent disability status qualify for full-time loans)
Part-time funding does not cover living costs. If you need additional financial support for living costs, please contact Enrolment Services Advisors to discuss your financial plan.
