This is the fee payable for registration in a program at a post-secondary educational institution. Tuition fees are set by the institutions and are used by Nova Scotia Student Assistance Office in assessing applications.
Your student category is used to determine the amounts of funding you are eligible to receive. There are four categories:
Confirmation of Enrolment for Canada and Nova Scotia Student Loan. Signed by the institution and used when a student is remaining in full-time study, but is not getting additional student assistance funding. Confirms to the lender that the student is still in school and defers repayment of student's loan until the student has completed full-time study.
The loan document for a Canada Student Loan. The student has this form signed by the institution, and then takes it to the lender to negotiate the loan. Also known as a "Certificate of Eligibility".
Funds students have or are assumed to have to contribute towards their educational costs. These are used to determine the calculated need for assistance. For specifics, see "How loan amounts are determined"
Amount of Canada Student Loan or Nova Scotia Student Loan issued to a student in excess of the amount the student is entitled to receive.
