Changes to End Dates

Extension of Study Period End Date due to Emergency Medical Situation

When a student has an emergency medical situation, they may extend the study period end date of their application beyond a normal study period end date (as stated in the school calendar) if the extension has been approved by the school and the extension is no more than 30 calendar days in length.

To request an extension, the student may submit a Request for Reconsideration along with a letter from the institution confirming the extension and supporting medical documentation.

If the extension is more than 30 days in length, a new application is required.

If the Request for Reconsideration does not result in additional funding, the student must submit a Form B (Confirmation of Registration-Reinstatement of Interest Free Status for Alberta Student Loans) to the Alberta Student Aid Service Centre and the National Student Loan Service Centre to ensure they maintain interest free status for their loans.

Revised Study Period End Date

If a student needs to extend the study period end date by more than 30 calendar days to a study period end date as stated in their school calendar, or for an additional semester, a student should submit a new application for the study period. This will result in an automatic request to the school for a confirmation of registration.

Alternately, a student may submit a Request for Reconsideration along with a letter from the school confirming the revised study period end date. This only applies if the student is attending the same program at the same educational institution. If the Request for Reconsideration does not result in additional funding, the student must submit a Form B (Confirmation of Registration-Reinstatement of Interest Free Status for Alberta Student Loans) to the Alberta Student Aid Service Centre and the National Student Loan Service Centre to ensure they maintain interest free status.
