Repaying student loans | Manitoba Student Aid

Payment pause information

The following measures are being put in place to support student loan borrowers during COVID-19:

  • Student loan repayment will be suspended until September 30, 2020:
    • If you want to continue making payments on your loan, you may do so by sending a cheque or electronic fund transfer to Manitoba Student Loans.
    • If you are registered for pre-authorized debit, they will be automatically stopped so you do not have to do anything.
    • If you are making payments by cheque or other means, you are not required to make payments during the suspension period.
  • Manitoba Student Loans remain interest free.

How does the suspension affect you if:

You are still in school

The suspension does not impact your loan since you have no payments to make.

You are in your six-month non-repayment period

Payments are never required during the non-repayment period.

If your non-repayment period is set to end during the suspension period, payments will automatically be suspended until September 30 and you will start repaying your loan in October 2020.

You have already started to repay your loan

You do not have to do anything; your loan will be payment free until September 30 and you will resume repaying your loan in October 2020. We will provide further information over the coming weeks on repayment options for October.
