apply at any time of the year but Alberta Student Aid must

What is a reduced course load?
Your disability may limit you from taking a full course load. If
so, you can carry as little as 40% of a full course load and still

reduced course load. If you are studying part-time, you may

What is a Permanent Disability?
A permanent disability is a functional limitation caused by a physical or mental impairment that restricts the ability of a person
to perform the daily activities necessary to participate in studies at a post-secondary level or labour force, and is expected to remain
with the person for the person’s expected natural life.
If I receive a disability grant for services or equipment for post-secondary students with permanent disabilities, I hereby agree to
provide, by the end of my current study period, receipts which will show that the student aid was spent for its intended purposes.
