Keep Your Student Loan Interest Free

Posted on: Oct 11, 2012

Studying full-time?

…with a new student loan
Once you cash your Alberta and Canada student loans for your current school year, any student loans you received previously are automatically interest-free if you cash them before your 6-month grace period expires. 

…without a new student loan
If you have previous student loans, and are not receiving student aid this year, you'll want to let your lenders – EDULINX and the National Student Loan Service Centre (NSLSC) – know so your loans can remain interest-free with no payments required.

Have a Canada AND Alberta student loan?  Complete a SCHEDULE 2 & FORM B
Have only an Alberta student loan?   Complete FORM B

Studying part-time? 

Keep your Alberta student loans interest-free by completing FORM B 
Note: Your Canada student loans are not interest-free when you are studying part-time. You will go into repayment for your Canada student loans 6 months from your last end of study date.
