STUDENT AID RESOURCES

No student should be deterred from attending NTC for lack of financial resources. The federal and provincial governments offer lending programs and students are encouraged to access these funds. Most NTC programs are recognized and registered with Alberta Student Loans and Canada Student Loans. When an applicant for NTC has been accepted for enrollment, an application for financial assistance may be submitted to the appropriate authorities in the province of residence. Loan application packages for Alberta students are available from the Registrar’s Office. Please speak with the Registrar for assistance or enquiries regarding Student Loan applications.
