Important Notice - Suspension of P.E.I. Student Loan Payments

To support student loan borrowers, the Province of Prince Edward Island announced its plan to automatically suspend P.E.I. student loan payments from April 30 through September 30, 2021.  Pre-authorized debits will be automatically suspended during this time period.  However, for those borrowers who wish to continue paying their P.E.I. Student Loan, one-time payments can be made through online banking or cheque.  Please contact Edulinx ( should you have any questions on these matters.

If you are a PEI student, you could get $4400 to $8800 in bursaries, depending on your program of study. No application is required. To receive this money, simply enroll as a first-time student at UPEI, Holland College, Maritime Christian College or College de l’Ile.

Low to middle income family?

Students of low and middle-income families can get needs-based support on top of other bursaries. Apply for a student loan and your income will be assessed to determine how much support you can get. The first student loan application deadline is July 15.

Need help paying off student loans?

Students with provincial student loans, who live in PEI within three years of graduating, can get up to $3,500 per academic year in debt reduction. If you graduated earlier than 2018, you are still eligible for up to $2,000 in debt reduction.
