    Hey there,

    I am currently a legal resident in California. I am moving to Canada in 3 months, but I am in need of a student loan for the college that I will be attending.

    The FAFSA here in the US doesn't recognize Camosun College as a registered school and private financial institutions in the US don't give loans for Canadian schools.

    I have no clue if I can take out a student loan in Canada, because so far all I have read is that you have to be a legal resident in British Columbia to take one out.

    Does anyone have an idea of what I should do?

    Anything would help!

    Step 1) Call your bank, tell them about your situation and ask them what to do.

    Step 2) ???

    Step 3) Profit.

    Srsly though even if you bank won't give you a student loan they are bound to know of some institution (private or otherwise) that will help you out. Surely you are not the first american ever who wants to study in Canada...

    Yeah I know I'm not the first one, but BofA, Wells Fargo, US Bank, and all of the branches that are close to me do not give loans for Canadian schools. Then the private institutions in the U.S. don't give loans for Canadian schools either, so I feel like the only option I have is trying to get a loan in Canada?
