# Amount of Loan

Awarded loan amounts are calculated as follows:

## Educational expenses

Educational expenses vary by level of education. They are calculated by multiplying the number of credits or course hours by a fixed amount that encompasses all expenses in this category (tuition, educational supplies and related costs, including admission and enrollment fees).

## Childcare expenses

Childcare expenses are recognized for each dependent child under the age of 12 and each child between 12 and 17 years of age with a major functional disability (handicap leading to significant persistent limitations in accomplishing daily activities) or a mental disorder. An amount of $543 per term is recognized for childcare expenses for each dependent child.

## Transportation expenses

Transportation expenses are recognized for student beneficiaries of the Loans Program for Part-Time Studies who attend a regional educational institution.

An amount of $385 per term is awarded to take account of the additional transportation expenses incurred by a student enrolled in an institution located in one of the following cities, regions or regional county municipalities (RCM):

- Bas-Saint-Laurent
- Gaspésie–Îles-de-la-Madeleine
