Direct Student Loan eligibility is based partially on maintaining satisfactory academic progress. The Academic Progress policy is outlined in the following document:
If a student does not maintain satisfactory academic progress they may not be eligible to receive loan funding or their current loan funding may be withdrawn.
If a student withdraws from Queen's or ceases to be enrolled in at least half time1 course load it is the student's responsibility to immediately notify the Student Awards Office. Queen's University, using the Return of Title IV funds policy will determine the amount of loan assistance that has been earned.
If a student is registered in at least a half time1 course load, and the student is not receiving student loans but has previous loans, the student may request an In School Deferment. Once completed the form must be submitted to the Student Awards Office.
1 half time: Undergraduate students registered in 15 credit units over the Fall Winter term or 9 credit units if attending one term only, or Graduate students registered as part-time.
