The rehabilitation requirement is impossible for us to meet, there is no way on this planet we can afford to pay tuition, and books and fees out of pocket for 1 entire academic year, financially it is impossible to do, and because of that school is out of the option as well, which means very little chance at ever having a career. I literally have no employable skills and I’d rather not work then working a negative for my health jobs. I need a positive healthy career that matches who I am. I will not suceed otherwise.
i saw an ad for a janitor today, and even extra school and training is needed, no longer a job you can do just with grade 12. If you have grade 12 it means no career, low income, and high stress life.
Every good paying job requires school.
Under Section 12(1) (a) of the Canada Student Financial Assistance Act, you are required to ‘attain a satisfactory scholastic standard’ to be eligible for assistance.
If you have withdrawn on two separate occasions or you have failed to successfully complete 68 weeks of funded full-time post-secondary studies, you fail to meet this provision of the act and you become ineligible for assistance through StudentAid BC.
A review of your scholastic standing while receiving student financial assistance indicates that you have withdrawn on two occasions or have failed to successfully complete 68 weeks of funded post-secondary study.
By policy, this disqualifies you from further funding and a restriction has been placed on your file.
To be considered for rehabilitation of your StudentAid BC eligibility you must successfully complete at least 60 per cent of a full-time course load (40 per cent for students with permanent disabilities as approved by StudentAid BC) of post-secondary study for two semesters or one academic year without assistance through StudentAid BC.
You will be required to submit a transcript of marks issued by your school to support your claim. Although you are not eligible for funding, you may apply to continue, or rehabilitate, your interest-free status whenever you are enrolled in at least 60 per cent of a full-time course load of post-secondary study (40 per cent for students with permanent disabilities, who have been approved by StudentAid BC to study at the reduced course load) by submitting an interest free application to the financial aid office at your school.
