Use school code: 02352100. Important: Enter May 1 as semester start date on application. Allow enough time to complete the entire process. Students receive loan proceeds and then pay tuition to Transart by posted deadlines.  All other matters related to the application is strictly between the applicant and Sallie Mae.

CANADIAN STUDENT LOANS

The Federal and Provincial Governments offer financial aid to Canadians studying at Plymouth University. We are a public institution with code PVBZ (although some provinces/territories may use a different code). Canadian loans are means-tested, meaning you must demonstrate financial need in order to qualify for financial aid. Generally, students interested in applying for a loan must do so through their provincial/territorial student assistance office or website. When you apply for a loan, you are considered for funding by both the Provincial and Federal Government, meaning you only have to apply once for funding for the year. While federal loans are handled through a lender called the National Student Loans Service Centre, provincial loans are handled through the provincial governments and student aid branches. Please visit the Campus Access website for a comprehensive overview of the financial aid application process. Your provincial Student Finance Department and not the University will process most of your loans. However, you may require University signatures or verification of your student status. The University must also confirm that you have been accepted onto a course or are already enrolled with us before any financial aid will be disbursed to you. Here is more information on financial aid and Canadian Federal Student Loans: http://www.canlearn.ca/.
