Applications for Summer Loan Extensions are only available on our website from April 1 to July 15.
If you are applying for funding to complete a clinical, placement or internship, submit a separate application (not an extension application) and provide an Application for Spring/Summer Session - Confirmation of Program form. Please note your previous application may have included funding for the clinical, placement or internship as part of your program. For example: if you were funded for 42 weeks of study on your fall/winter application your costs would have been included. If this situation is not applicable, continue with your extension application.
You will not be required to send a Pre-study report however you must report your income for your pre-study period (not in class) and study period (in class).
Each total of 12 weeks of study in an extension is counted as a semester of study, or half year in your total program. (For example: if you received 6 weeks of funding for a summer extension in 2009 and you receive 6 weeks of funding for your extension for 2010, your program length will be reduced by a semester.)
Dropping courses or switching courses may affect your eligibility for funding through the extension period that may result in over awards.
You must submit a copy of your transcript showing successful completion of your extension period to the Nova Scotia Student Assistance office no later than October 1st of the year of your extension period.
