When do I apply?
Applying early is always better. We'll explain how early you should apply and why.
You can apply early using the online application.
Normally, applications for fall and winter studies are available in June. Students should apply early to make sure they don't miss any deadlines.
Online applications take two weeks to process, paper applications are available in July and take five weeks to process.
You can apply even if your school has not officially accepted you – just make sure you know the name of your school, the program you are going into and the start and end dates.
If you are going to a school or program that is not designated, make sure you submit a designation application to begin the process.
The Manitoba Student Aid application is now available to full-time students attending classes during the 2023-2024 application year.
