The BC Ministry of Advanced Education established the Adult Upgrading Grant (AUG) program to provide needs-based financial support to learners enrolled in skills upgrading, developmental education, and training courses.
The Adult Upgrading Grant program provides needs-based grants to help with costs such as:
Most CapU courses below the 100-level qualify for AUG funding.
There will be restrictions if you are repeating a course. Post-secondary courses (at the 100-level and above) are not eligible.
Complete these two forms and submit them together to the Registrar's Office. Original forms are required. Photocopies and emailed forms are not allowed.
We will assess your eligibility within 1 week of receiving your completed application. This can happen before classes start. We will then send you a letter in the mail letting you know if you are eligible. The grant is not approved and no money is released at this time. If you are eligible, the letter will let you know the action you have to take to claim the grant. If you are not eligible, the letter will let you know the reason(s) why you are not eligible.
We will assess your courses within 1-3 weeks after the standard term add/drop period ends. This will happen about one month after classes start. We will send you a letter in the mail letting you know if your courses are eligible and if a grant has been approved. If a grant has been approved, the letter will let you know how much the grant is, what costs it is intended to cover, and that the grant has been put into your student account. If a grant is not approved, the letter will let you know the reason(s) why your courses are not eligible.
If you received AUG for a course before, and did not complete the course, you cannot receive AUG again to support the costs of that same course.If you stop attending your course(s), withdraw twice from course(s), or fail to demonstrate satisfactory progress in your education while funded by AUG, you will no longer qualify for AUG for enrolment in any courses.
AUG funding does not support costs associated with post-secondary courses (100-level or higher). If you are enrolled in developmental courses (below the 100-level) and post secondary courses (100-level or higher) at the same time, the type(s) of funding you are eligible to apply for depend on your courseload.
Adult Upgrading Grants (AUG) applicants who have a change in their course registration and would like to request a review of their

completed reassessment form must be received in the Financial Aid and Awards office no
later than three weeks before the scheduled end date of your course(s).
Once your request for reassessment has been reviewed, Financial Aid and
Awards will contact you via postal mail with results.
