Digital Changes to Alberta Student Aid (MSFAA Submission)

Students who need to submit their MSFAA must take one of the following actions:

1.       Go to Alberta Student Aid , log in to SFS to access their MSFAA and instructions

2.       Contact the Alberta Student Aid Service Centre to have their MSFAA sent to them.

Retrieving MSFAAs from SFS/Digital Inbox

In order for students to see their mail online they are required to have full system access to SFS.  Full system access is given to students who are able to authenticate their identity by providing one of the following:

·         Two Alberta high school diploma exam marks, or

·         A cashed Alberta loan certificate number and the amount they received, or

·         An approved Master Student Financial Assistance Agreement (MSFAA) number

 

Students who do not have full access to SFS are not able to view their correspondence, upload documents, or take advantage of online digital features.   It is recommended that students who have limited SFS access upgrade to full system access as soon as they are able to do so. 

If students are unable to upgrade their system access, they should contact the Alberta Student Aid Service Centre to arrange to have their correspondence and MSFAAs sent to them.  

Requesting MSFAAs from the Alberta Student Aid Service Centre

Students who are unable to access their digital inbox will need to contact Alberta Student Aid to make arrangements to have their Master Student Financial Assistance Agreements sent to them by post or email.
