Financial Aid

Langara College is committed to making students aware of the financial assistance available to them while they pursue their undergraduate studies. In addition to government financial aid, eligible students are also able to apply for bursaries, scholarships, and awards to supplement school and day-to-day expenses. If you’re worried about how to stretch your finances, let us help you relieve some stress!

StudentAid BCprovides assistance in the form of Canada Student Loans or a combination of Canada Student Loans, B.C. Student Loans, and possibly grant funding. The amount and type of assistance awarded is based on need as assessed by the Provincial Authority. Students are reminded that this is an assistance program aimed at complementing, not replacing, their own financial resources. To apply for a Student Loan please download thisFull-Time/Part-Time Student Loans Information Sheet.

The Langara Bursaryis available for students that are able to demonstrate financial need and are in good academic standing. Bursary recipients must be Canadian citizens, permanent residents, or protected persons with proof of status and be enrolled in a minimum of nine credits (six credits for students with a registered disability). Please apply for bursaries by the 15thof the first month of the semester for consideration. Bursaries are non-repayable so it’s up to you how you want to spend it. We usually distribute this money towards the latter half of the semester, so please do not count on it going towards tuition. Please apply for consideration.

The Student Work Assistance Program (SWAP)is a way for Langara departments to hire students who demonstrate financial need to assist with a range of jobs on campus. To be eligible for SWAP students need to fill out a SWAP application, be enrolled in a minimum of nine credits, demonstrate financial need, and have a CGPA of 2.0. If a student is already approved for a government student loan and grant, financial need is already established.

Work on Campus (WOC)is a new initiative available to students who want to work as a peer tutor or to perform basic research at Langara but does not meet the financial need requirement nor full-time enrolment that applies to SWAP students. If you have a strong CGPA, are registered in at least one course (three credits) and are in good academic standing, please apply for consideration.

Provincial Tuition Waiver Program for BC Youth In Careis a new program that the provincial government has implemented. If you were a youth in care of the Ministry of Child and Family Development for a minimum of two years, and are currently between the ages of 19–26, you may be eligible for a tuition waiver. For more information please visit our office. Note: this program is meant to replace Langara College’s Youth in Care Bursary Program. If you have questions or concerns about your continued eligibility please contact us.

In unforeseen financial emergencies, students can access Financial Aid Advisors to help investigate possible resources available. We are located in the Financial Aid Office, in theRegistrar & Enrolment Servicesoffice.
