This guide for college students in Alberta, Canada, discusses paying back students loans. While it may be the last thing a student wants to think about as he or she leaves college, it is a good idea to plan how to pay back the loan. A Canadian student has 6 months free of payments on graduation, but then must begin paying student loans, principal and interest on the first day of the seventh month following completion of studies. Students in Alberta may have Alberta and Canada Student Loans, and must plan for both. The booklet explains the Alberta Student Loan Relief Program, which repays part of the province's student loan for eligible students with large loan burdens. Also explained are regular repayment schedules and what happens when a student cannot repay a loan. Some frequently asked questions are presented, and sources of additional information are described.
