Confirmation of enrolment

Students are responsible for maintaining interest-free status with their lenders. Please contact your lenders with any questions.

In order to keep your Canada and Provincial Student Loans interest-free, you will need to submit confirmation of full-time enrollment on each type of loan.  You must meet the full-time status requirements outlined below. UVic can start confirming enrolment for most provinces 2 weeks before your classes start. For Ontario forms and CPP forms, confirmations can not be completed until the first day of classes.
