Student Financial Services is pleased to inform you that the 2022-2023 Application (including most supporting documents and forms) is now available at studentaid.gnb.ca. General information regarding Student Financial Assistance programs and processes is available in the 2022-2023 Student Financial Assistance Handbook. Information on the program changes can be found in the 2022-2023 Program Highlights and Funding Information document.
The most significant program change for 2022-2023 is related to the supports for qualifying students with disabilities. This change will see an expansion of the program to eligible students with a persistent or prolonged disability (a condition lasting at least 12 months which restricts or impacts the student’s participation in post-secondary studies). To accommodate this program change, we have modified the disability related questions on the application and re-designed the Medical Assessment Form which has been renamed the Disability Verification Form. The Disability Verification Form will soon be available on the website.
For information on what is needed to accurately complete the application and what supporting documents are required, we encourage applicants to refer to the “How to Avoid Delays with your Application?” section of the online application and the Applicant Checklist on our website. The “Upload a Document” feature is available for students to submit the required supporting documentation to us in a timely manner.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. If students or parents / guardians have questions regarding the application process, please direct them to call the toll free number 1-800-667-5626 or to register for a virtual Question and Answer Student Financial Assistance Session by visiting the Student Financial Services website at www.studentaid.gnb.ca.
