Students from other provinces should consult with their provincial student loan programs.

You should carefully read the brochure that accompanies the student aid application form and make certain that all questions are completed and all pertinent documentation enclosed. Failure to do this might result in a lengthy delay in the processing of your application. Applications that are correctly completed and received before the deadline date will be processed in time for you to receive assistance and in time to pay your tuition fees.

In some cases personal and family circumstances will change between the time you apply for financial aid and the date you actually receive it. An appeals procedure is available to help you take account of these changes.

You can access your financial information through the Self Service link at www.mun.ca/regoff.
