Do I need medical insurance?
We require that all students provide proof of valid medical insurance coverage at the time of registration.
- Residents of British Columbia
All BC residents are required to have medical insurance under the BC Medical Services Plan.
- Residents of other provinces
Students from other provinces may be able to maintain medical coverage from their home province.
- International students
All newcomers to BC have a three-month waiting period before they can apply for the BC Medical Services Plan. During that waiting period all students will automatically be enrolled in a bridging medical insurance provided through Guard.me (www.guard.me). Guard.Me provides affordable comprehensive health insurance when students arrive in Canada. Guard Me’s medical plan pays for all basic medical expenses as well as certain additional services such as required prescriptions. Please visit http://www.guard.me/faqs.php for an explanation of Guard Me’s University and College policy coverage. All new students are automatically enrolled into Guard Me’s plan at a rate of $2.25 per day, beginning on the first day of Orientation to the end of their third month in Canada. If you are arriving early or require medical insurance for members of your family, please contact the Registrar’s Office at firstname.lastname@example.org coverage until you are covered by MSP.
Questions about insurance? Please talk to our advisors.
Can I get loans or bursaries for my program?
Yes, if you are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.
If you are taking a minimum 60% course load and you can demonstrate financial need, you can apply for aid through your home province’s student loan program.
Other bursaries or tuition subsidies may also be available to you. Talk to one of our advisors for the most up-to-date information.
