Alberta Student Aid System

The Alberta Student Aid system is used to issue Alberta Student Aid funding to students. You can view students' application/funding details including statuses and correspondence. It also allows you to confirm payments being issued to students attending your school. 

Access to the Student Aid system is optional. To gain access your school must:

  • be located in Canada,
  • be designated by Alberta Student Aid, and
  • sign an Access to Learner Information Agreement (ALIA), a legal agreement with Alberta Student Aid, regarding the use and protection of student information.

If you do not have access to the Alberta Student Aid System, you must complete an Access to Learner Information Agreement (ALIA).


Features of the Alberta Student Aid System

Allows you to review your students' accounts to assist them in understanding:

  • how their eligibility was calculated,
  • correspondence sent to them,
  • their application status. 

Confirmation of Registration (COR)
The online confirmation system for student registration. Funding will not be sent until Alberta Student Aid receives confirmation of student registration from the school.

  • confirm full-time registration and verify programs/study periods of students attending your school
  • request tuition remittance directly to the school
  • report changes to registrations (i.e. withdrawals, drop to part-time status)

Access for Schools

Access to Learner Information Agreement (ALIA) for New Schools

By signing the ALIA, your school consents to conditions intended to ensure the privacy and confidentiality of student records, and to inform us of any changes in staff who have access to the Alberta Student Aid system.

A person with signing authority (e.g. president, registrar, owner, or a delegate) at your school must first sign and submit an Access to Learner Information Agreement (ALIA) to Alberta Student Aid. Once it has been received, your school and designated staff will be able to setup their accounts with Alberta Education.

For more information or for assistance with completing the Access to Learner Information Agreement (ALIA), email:

Once the ALIA agreement is completed, the person with signing authority at your school must complete and submit a Student Aid system access form. This form provides Alberta Student Aid the names and contact information of designated staff at the school who either require access and/or should have access removed.
