Changes to Alternative/Private Loans for 2020-2021

Please be advised Alternative/Private Loans will no longer provide coverage for tuition and fees, and will not appear on a student's award in myBC. Students expecting to use these loans to cover their tuition should make plans to sign up for a tuition payment plan or pay out of pocket to prevent classes from being dropped for non payment.  

The final date to submit an alternative/private loan for certification is September 30, 2020. Alternative/Private loans for students with a Fall certification that is approved by their lender will be disbursed on October 16, 2020.

Students who are enrolled in Session 3 and Session 4 courses will have their private loans processed at a later date.

Students must be enrolled for classes to receive their Private Loan refund.
