Review & Process Student Aid Correspondence
After submitting your Alberta Student Aid full-time student loan application, you can log in to your Student Aid Account account to view the following:
Student Award Letter (SAL)
Your SAL provides details including your funding decision, breakdown of the type(s) of funding you will be receiving (ie. loan vs grant) and when these funds are to be disbursed.
These forms are your agreements with the federal and provincial governments. If you are approved to receive Alberta Student Loan funds, you will be issued an Alberta Loan Agreement. If you are approved to receive Canada Student Loan funds, you will be issued a Canada Loan Agreement. You are only required to submit the Loan Agreement for the type(s) of funding you are approved to received.
Loan Agreements must be completed the first time you are approved to receive Alberta and/or Canada funding. You are also required to submit new Loan Agreements if you have had previous funding and return to school after a break of 2+ years.
Your Alberta Student Loan funds will not be released until your Alberta Loan Agreement has been processed and received by Alberta Studen Aid Service Centre. Your Canada Student Loan funds will not be released until your Canada Loan Agreement has been processed and received by the National Student Loans Service Centre.
Alberta Loan Agreements must be printed from your Student Aid Account. Canada Loan Agreements must be completed by logging into your National Student Loans Service Centre (NSLSC) Online Services account.
Married or common law students who apply for their student loan using the online application will receive a spousal consent form for their spouse/partner to sign. This form can be obtained and printed from the Inquire page (within the correspondence section) of your Student Aid Account. This form must be completed and returned to Alberta Student Aid via mail or eDoc upload (accessed via your Student Aid Account).
