Once you have completed your loan or grant document, you may submit it in person to either a designated Canada Post outlet or an on-campus National Student Loans Service Centre (NSLSC) kiosk, which will forward the document to the NSLSC.
In order to obtain or negotiate loan or grant authorization documents, you must present 2 forms of ID.
- A valid photo identification issued in Canada by the federal, or a provincial or territorial, government. Examples of acceptable ID include:
- a valid driver’s license
- a passport
- a provincial health card with a photo, or
- a permanent residency or citizenship card.
- A document proving that the Social Insurance Number (SIN) on your loan or grant authorization document is your own. For example, you can show your SIN card or present an official Government of Canada document that indicates your SIN, such as:
- a Canada Revenue Agency Notice of Assessment
- a Canada Pension Plan Statement of Contributions
- a Confirmation of Social Insurance Number from Service Canada, or
- a temporary SIN card
It's important that the combination of these 2 pieces of identification include your photo, your name, your address and your SIN.
