What documents do I need to submit?
Colleges will advise potential students of specific criteria that must be met to qualify to participate in the SPP. See our Student Partners Program kit for details of the documents you need.
Will I get a study permit automatically if I choose this option?
No. The SPP provides a streamlined application process but you must still meet all requirements for a study permit, including a medical examination.
What happens if my study permit application is refused?
You will be able to apply to the bank that issued your GIC for a full refund of your GIC.
