Within two to three business days of receiving your Notice of Assessment Letter (NOA) on your StudentAid BC dashboard account, you will receive a “welcome email” from the National Student Loans Service Centre (NSLSC). Your NOTICE will be published on your StudentAid BC dashboard after your full-time application has been assessed. The “Welcome Email” provides you with the link to register for an online account with the NSLSC and complete your MSFAA. Your NOA letter contains a 10-digit MSFAA number that you use to complete your MSFAA. If you agree to the MSFAA terms, your agreement will apply to all funds noted from that date. The next time you apply for student financial aid, you will not need to submit a new MSFAA. Simply complete and submit a StudentAid BC application and view your review notice. Funds that may qualify for you will be deposited electronically into your account and/or sent to your school to pay your tuition fees. If your financial institution is not a SecureKey sign-in partner or you do not wish to use this service, you can obtain credentials (username and password) through GCKey, a service provided by the Government of Canada.
If you attend a private school in B.C. or a school outside of B.C., a confirmation of enrolment form will be sent to your school. Your school will confirm your registration on the registration confirmation form and return the form to StudentAid BC. Once your confirmation of enrollment is processed, your student loans and/or grant funds may be released. Most B.C. schools confirm online student registration directly with StudentAid BC. If you receive more than one student loan payment during your application period (check your assessment notice), your school will need to confirm your enrollment each time before the money can be distributed to you. Once your MSFAA has been processed by the NSLSC and before your student loan and/or bursary can be released, your school must confirm that you are enrolled in an eligible full-time post-secondary program for the entire period of study for which you received funding. SecureKey enrollment partners are groups such as banks and credit unions that have partnered with SecureKey Technologies to have their customers use their online credentials (e.B. . .
