A message about the new improvement measures

Starting December 7th, 2017 Aide financière aux études will recalculate the files of its student beneficiaries, following an adjustment to the student financial assistance assessment parameters for award year 2017-2018.

The financial assistance calculation for 2017-2018 will be automatically adjusted for both full-time and part-time students.

Please note that the amounts shown on the Aide financière aux études website for award year 2017-2018 will be changed on December 7th, 2017 to take account of the improvement measures that were announced by the Minister responsible for Higher Education on December 15, 2016. 

These measures are as follows: 

  • An increase to the cost of living expenses
  • An increase to the additional cost of living expenses for student single parent beneficiaries of the Loans and Bursaries Program
  • One additional round-trip air ticket per term for beneficiaries of the Loans and Bursaries Program whose residence and educational institution are located within Québec but are not connected by road
  • Increased Loans Program for Part-Time Studies eligibility threshold
  • Increased Deferred Payment Plan eligibility threshold
