DIVISION I
THE STUDENT’S CONTRIBUTION
§ 1.  — Computation of the contribution
1. The contribution of a student for a year of allocation is established as the sum of
(1)  50% of the student’s employment income referred to in Schedule I, minus applicable exemptions;
(2)  the student’s other income referred to in Schedule II; and
(3)  the student’s scholarship income.
For the purposes of the computation in subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph, only 40% of the student’s employment income is taken into account if no financial assistance is granted to the student under the loans and bursaries program for the preceding year of allocation.
If the result of the computation of financial assistance does not exceed the portion of the maximum amount of a loan established pursuant to section 54, the student’s contribution is recomputed taking into account only the items referred to in subparagraphs 2 and 3 of the first paragraph. The financial assistance granted to the student in the form of a loan may not exceed that portion of the maximum amount of a loan.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 1; O.C. 774-2012, s. 1; O.C. 452-2013, s. 1.
§ 2.  — Applicable exemptions
2. For the purpose of computing the applicable exemptions, an amount is established as maximum income protection to take into account expenses incurred by the student while not pursuing full-time studies.
The amount of maximum income protection is computed by allocating $1,134 for each of the following months:
(1)  the first months of the year of allocation and the other months of the calendar year ending in the year of allocation for which no expense is allowed; and
(2)  the subsequent months in the year of allocation during which the student interrupts his or her full-time studies, if the student resumes the studies before the end of the year of allocation, and for which no expense is allowed.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 2; O.C. 238-2015, s. 1; O.C. 301-2016, s. 1.
3. An exemption corresponding to the student’s employment income, up to 30% of the amount of maximum income protection, is granted to the student.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 3.
4. An exemption corresponding to the sum of 35% of the amount of maximum income protection and 35% of the student’s employment income, up to 70% of the amount of maximum income protection, is granted to a student if
(1)  the student meets any of the conditions in subparagraphs 1 to 4 of the first paragraph of section 4 of the Act respecting financial assistance for education expenses (chapter A-13.3);
(2)  the student is not deemed to receive a contribution from his or her parents or sponsor and does not reside with his or her parents or sponsor during the first month in the year of allocation during which the student is pursuing full-time studies;
(3)  the student is the subject of a decision or placement order that does not provide for payment of support for the student, except where the decision or placement order is made in a matter of adoption;
(4)  custody of the student is entrusted to a tutor;
(5)  the student had to leave the residence of his or her parents or sponsor for serious reasons such as the student’s health or safety;
(6)  the student’s parents or sponsor are sheltered in a reception centre, health or social services institution or other place where the student cannot reside; or
(7)  the student’s parents or sponsor have no residence in Canada.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 4.
5. An exemption corresponding to 5% of the student’s employment income, up to 5% of the amount of maximum income protection, is granted to a student who cannot benefit from the exemption in section 4.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 5.
§ 3.  — Scholarship income
6. A student’s scholarship income comprises the amounts in excess of $5,000 received as such from a public or private organization during the calendar year ending in the year of allocation.
That income does not, however, include amounts from an education savings plan.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 6.
§ 4.  — Reduction in the contribution
7. A student’s contribution is reduced if the student pursues studies otherwise than on a full-time basis in an educational institution recognized by the Minister or the Minister of Education, Recreation and Sports during the 4-month period preceding a month in the year of allocation during which the student pursues full-time studies.
The reduction in the contribution is $255 per credit if the student pursues studies at the university level, $22 per course hour if the student pursues studies at the college level in a private educational institution and $15 per course hour in all other cases.
If a student does not reside with his or her parents or sponsor during one of the months in that period, or is not deemed to reside with his or her parents or sponsor within the meaning of section 31, the student’s contribution is reduced by an additional amount of $120 per credit or $8 per course hour.
The third paragraph does not apply to a student who benefits from the exemption in section 4.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 7; S.Q. 2013, c. 28, a. 190; O.C. 627-2014, s. 1.
8. The reduction in the student’s contribution established pursuant to section 7 is lowered if the student has employment income referred to in Schedule I.
The lowered reduction corresponds to the amount obtained by multiplying the student’s employment income by 2.5%, up to the amount of maximum income protection, and by multiplying the result of that operation by the number of credits accumulated or by the number obtained by dividing the number of completed course hours by 15.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 8.
9. A student’s contribution is reduced if the student works and does not reside with his or her parents or sponsor, or is not deemed to reside with his or her parents or sponsor, pursuant to section 31, with the necessary modifications, during the months referred to in the second paragraph of section 2.
The reduction in the student’s contribution is established by multiplying by $380 the lesser of
(1)  the number of months taken into account to establish maximum income protection pursuant to the second paragraph of section 2; and
(2)  the number obtained by dividing the student’s employment income referred to in Schedule I by $1,134.
If the student benefits from a reduction in his or her contribution pursuant to the third paragraph of section 7, the number obtained pursuant to subparagraph 1 of the second paragraph is reduced by the number obtained by dividing the number of credits then accumulated by 3, or by dividing the number of course hours then completed by 45.
This section does not apply to a student who benefits from the exemption in section 4.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 9; O.C. 627-2014, s. 2; O.C. 301-2016, s. 2.
10. A student’s contribution established pursuant to sections 1 to 9 is reduced if the student ceases to be enrolled or to be deemed to be enrolled within the meaning of section 27 as of the month of May of the year of allocation.
The student’s contribution is reduced by 12.5% for each month in the year of allocation preceding the month of May for which the student does not benefit from the exemption provided for in section 2.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 10.
§ 5.  — Exemption from contribution
11. A student’s contribution is not taken into account for the purpose of computing financial assistance if the student is registered in a training program offered by the Minister of Employment and Social Solidarity and attends a private educational institution at the secondary level in vocational training or at the college level, a public educational institution for a non-subsidized course of study or a university-level institution.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 11.
DIVISION II
CONTRIBUTION OF THE PARENTS, SPONSOR OR SPOUSE
§ 1.  — Computation of the contribution
12. The contribution of the parents, sponsor or spouse, for a year of allocation, is established in relation to their respective income, minus applicable exemptions. The income of the parents is added to establish their contribution.
The contribution corresponds to the amount determined in the table in Schedule III.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 12; O.C. 627-2014, s. 3.
13. Despite section 12, if the student’s parents no longer live together, their contribution is established on the basis only of the income of the parent with whom the student resides or last resided.
However, if the student has not resided with either parent since their separation, the parents’ contribution is established on the basis only of the income of the parent designated by the student.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 13; O.C. 627-2014, s. 4.
14. If the parents and sponsor of the student reside in Canada during the year of allocation, the financial assistance is computed taking into account the parents’ contribution, if any.
However, if the student’s parents do not reside in Canada at the beginning of the year of allocation, the financial assistance is computed taking into account the sponsor’s contribution, if any.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 14.
§ 2.  — Income of parents, sponsor or spouse
15. The income used to determine the contribution of the parents, sponsor or spouse is the total income appearing in their respective income tax return filed in accordance with section 1000 of the Taxation Act (chapter I-3) for the calendar year ending before the beginning of the year of allocation and confirmed by the assessment notice transmitted in accordance with that Act. However, the total income appearing in the income tax return of one of those persons must be reduced, where applicable, by the amount of the retirement income transferred by the spouse and by the amount transferred from a locked-in retirement account and for which a deduction has been made.
Allowances or benefits paid by a government to help children or families are taken into account to establish the income of the parents or sponsor.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 15; O.C. 627-2014, s. 5; O.C. 238-2015, s. 2.
16. Despite section 15, if the income of the parents, sponsor or spouse, as the case may be, for the calendar year ending during the year of allocation is at least 10% lower than the income for the preceding calendar year, the income taken into account is the income of the calendar year ending during the year of allocation.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 16.
§ 3.  — Applicable exemptions
17. For the purpose of computing the contribution of the parents or sponsor, the applicable exemptions are as follows:

§ 4.  — Reduction in contribution
19. The contribution of the parents, sponsor or spouse is reduced to take into account the expenses incurred for their children.
The contribution of the parents or sponsor is divided by the number of their children, including the student, who are pursuing full-time studies in vocational training at the secondary level or full-time studies at the postsecondary level and are deemed to receive a contribution from their parents or sponsor.
The contribution of the spouse is divided by the number obtained by counting the student and each child of the student and his or her spouse who are pursuing full-time studies in vocational training at the secondary level or full-time postsecondary studies and are deemed to receive a contribution from their parents.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 19.
20. The contribution of the parents, sponsor or spouse established pursuant to sections 12 to 19 is reduced if the student is not enrolled or deemed to be enrolled for more than 7 months in the year of allocation.
The contribution of the parents, sponsor or spouse in such case corresponds to the amount obtained by multiplying the amount of their contribution established pursuant to sections 12 to 19 by the percentage obtained by multiplying the number of months in the year of allocation during which the student is enrolled or deemed to be enrolled by 12.5%.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 20.

The foregoing also applies to a student who is pursuing university studies outside Québec and has completed 4 years of full-time university studies or, if the student has a diploma of college studies, has completed 3 years of full-time university studies in the same course of study.
Despite the first and second paragraphs, a student who has a major functional deficiency within the meaning of section 47 is deemed not to receive a contribution from his or her parents or sponsor if the student has been pursuing university studies in Québec for at least 3 years and has accumulated 45 credits in the same course of study.

29.2. A special allocation for school fees is granted to a student who attends a university-level institution in Québec if the amount of the loan that may be granted to the student, computed in accordance with section 14 of the Act respecting financial assistance for education expenses (chapter A-13.3), corresponds to the amount of the first portion of a loan set out in paragraph 3 of section 49 or, if the student’s contribution is recomputed as provided in the third paragraph of section 1, the amount of the loan corresponds to the portion of the maximum loan amount established pursuant to section 54.
The amount of the allocation granted to a student in the form of a loan is $18.53 per credit. As of the 2014-2015 year of allocation, the amount is adjusted annually. The adjustment corresponds to the difference between the amount of the basic tuition fees, determined per credit, for the year of allocation concerned and the amount determined for the preceding year of allocation. The adjusted amount is made public by the Minister on the website not later than 1 September of the year of allocation to which it applies.
For the purposes of this Regulation, the amount of the basic tuition fees means the maximum amount of the basic tuition fees per credit for the residents of Québec determined annually by the Minister.

However, if the child is of full age or if the student is not entitled to child assistance payments under the Taxation Act (chapter I-3), the amount is increased to $189 per month.

67. The financial institution and the student must enter into a loan agreement governing the disbursement of the amounts corresponding to the monthly or periodic instalments established by the Minister.
The financial institution and the student may at that time agree on repayment terms and conditions.
Despite the foregoing, a financial institution may not enter into a loan agreement as long as any debt relating to a loan previously granted to the student under the Act respecting financial assistance for education expenses (chapter A-13.3) has not been assigned to it.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 67.
§ 2.  — Repayment
68. Unless the borrower has agreed on the repayment terms and conditions or has been recognized as a borrower in a precarious financial situation within the meaning of section 74, the borrower must, at the end of the partial exemption period, enter into a repayment agreement with the creditor financial institution in relation to the loan and any capitalized interest.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 68.
69. The repayment agreement must determine the amount of the payments agreed on to repay the principal and interest or the method agreed on to determine such an amount.
The rate of interest to be applied is fixed at the end of the full exemption period.
The rate of interest is again fixed at the end of the partial exemption period. From that date, the rate of interest is a variable rate that fluctuates as provided in section 73.
The borrower and the financial institution may, at any time, agree on other repayment terms and conditions.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 69.
70. A borrower may, from the end of the partial exemption period, require that the rate of interest applicable to the balance of any loan granted under the Act be the hypothecary interest rate offered by the financial institution for the term chosen by the borrower.
The borrower and the financial institution may agree on a term that exceeds the terms for which a hypothecary interest rate is offered. In such a case, the applicable rate of interest is the hypothecary interest rate offered by the financial institution for the longest term.
The repayment agreement must indicate the rate of interest and the amount and number of payments agreed on by the borrower and the financial institution for full repayment of all of the principal and interest. Subsequent modifications may be made only on agreement.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 70.
§ 3.  — Interest
71. The rate of interest applicable to the payment of interest by the Minister on a loan granted under the Act is fixed monthly, on the first day of the month preceding the month for which the rate is applicable, as follows: the rate is equal to the banker’s acceptance rate in force on the day the rate of interest is fixed, plus 150 basis points.
The expression “banker’s acceptance rate” means the current banker’s acceptance rate in Canadian dollars for 1 month, as it appears in the Bank of Canada’s Weekly Financial Statistics.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 71.
72. Payment of interest by the Minister is made at the latest at the end of the month following the month for which the interest is payable.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 72.
73. The rate applicable to the payment of interest by the borrower is equal to the prime business rate, plus 50 basis points. That rate of interest fluctuates in relation to the variations in the prime business rate.
The expression “prime business rate” means the rate fixed by the Bank of Canada for a given day as the standard to be used by financial institutions and published in its Weekly Financial Statistics.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 73.
§ 4.  — Precarious financial situation
74. A borrower is in a precarious financial situation if the borrower’s income referred to in Schedules I and II is less, on a monthly basis, than the amount obtained by multiplying the minimum wage set out in section 3 of the Regulation respecting labour standards (chapter N-1.1, r. 3) by 160.21, and the borrower expects his or her income to remain such for the following 5 months.
The amount determined under the first paragraph is increased by $252 for each child of the borrower. The amount is further increased by $125 if the borrower has no spouse and lives with the child.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 74; O.C. 698-2007, s. 16; O.C. 811-2008, s. 13; O.C. 1175-2009, s. 11; O.C. 971-2010, s. 12; O.C. 1009-2011, s. 14; O.C. 984-2013, s. 13; O.C. 627-2014, s. 18; O.C. 238-2015, s. 18; O.C. 301-2016, s. 17.
74.1. A borrower is also in a precarious financial situation if the monthly payment necessary for the borrower to repay the balance of the principal and interest of his or her loan within 180 months following the end of the partial exemption period is greater than the minimum monthly payment the borrower is able to make in his or her situation, and the borrower expects the situation to remain such for the following 5 months.
For the purposes of the first paragraph, the amount of the minimum monthly payment is computed by multiplying the borrower’s monthly income referred to in Schedules I and II by the percentage obtained by
(1)  subtracting, from the borrower’s monthly income referred to in Schedules I and II, the amount computed in accordance with section 74;
(2)  dividing the amount obtained under subparagraph 1 by the number 25,000 increased, if applicable, by 7,500 for each child of the borrower and by 10,000 if the borrower has no spouse and lives with his or her child; and
(3)  adding 0.02 to the number obtained under subparagraph 2.
Despite the second paragraph, the amount of the minimum monthly payment may not exceed 20% of the borrower’s monthly income referred to in Schedules I and II.
The rate of interest applicable to the computation of the monthly payment necessary for the borrower to repay the balance of the principal and interest of his or her loan within the time fixed in the first paragraph is a variable rate that fluctuates as provided in section 73.
O.C. 1009-2011, s. 15.
75. A borrower may apply to the Minister to be recognized as a borrower in a precarious financial situation for a maximum period of 6 months ending not later than 120 months after the end of the partial exemption period, if the borrower is in such a situation at the time of application.
Recognition of the borrower’s precarious financial situation suspends the performance of the repayment agreement.
During the period provided for in the first paragraph, the Minister pays to the financial institution, on behalf of the borrower, the interest on the balance of the guaranteed loans and any capitalized interest at the rate provided for in section 73.
Despite the foregoing, a borrower referred to in section 74.1 must, during any time he or she is recognized as a borrower in a precarious financial situation, pay to his or her financial institution the minimum monthly payment computed under the second paragraph of that section.
Section 72 applies to payment of the interest by the Minister.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 75; O.C. 1009-2011, s. 16.
76. On the expiry of the period determined under section 75, the borrower may apply to the Minister to be again recognized as a borrower in a precarious financial situation.
In the case provided for in section 74.1, a borrower may not be recognized again as a borrower in a precarious financial situation if the borrower fails to make a monthly payment payable pursuant to the fourth paragraph of section 75.
A borrower may not, however, be recognized as being in a precarious financial situation for more than 60 months during the borrower’s lifetime.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 76; O.C. 1009-2011, s. 17.
77. A borrower who ceases to be in a precarious financial situation must begin to make the monthly payments payable pursuant to the repayment agreement to the financial institution.
A borrower who was not required to enter into a repayment agreement at the end of the partial exemption period must enter into such an agreement as soon as the borrower ceases to be in a precarious financial situation.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 77.
§ 5.  — Borrower in default
78. A borrower is in default if the borrower
(1)  avails himself or herself of or is subject to an Act relating to bankruptcy, insolvency or the protection of debtors;
(2)  refuses, neglects or fails to enter into a repayment agreement; or
(3)  refuses, neglects or fails to make a payment due under the repayment agreement and that refusal, negligence or failure extends beyond 30 days.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 78.
79. As soon as the borrower is in default, the balance of the principal and interest of the loan becomes payable.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 79.
80. If the Minister reimburses to the financial institution the losses in principal and interest resulting from a guaranteed loan pursuant to section 28 of the Act respecting financial assistance for education expenses (chapter A-13.3), the rate of interest to be paid by the borrower in default is, as of the reimbursement, a variable rate that fluctuates as provided in section 73.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 80.
§ 6.  — Resumption of studies
81. If a borrower resumes being a full-time student, any unpaid interest owing is capitalized.
This section does not apply to a student who, pursuant to section 43 of the Act respecting financial assistance for education expenses (chapter A-13.3), must agree with the Minister on repayment terms and conditions.
O.C. 344-2004, s. 81.

In addition, where the student has a spouse or is deemed to receive a contribution from his or her parents or sponsor, their income is added to the amount established in accordance with the first paragraph, as the case may be, and consists of the total income appearing in their respective income tax return filed in accordance with section 1000 of the Taxation Act for the calendar year ending before the beginning of the year of allocation and confirmed by the assessment notice transmitted in accordance with that Act.
However, the total income appearing in the income tax return of one of those persons must be reduced, where applicable, by the amount of the retirement income transferred by the spouse and by the amount transferred from a locked-in retirement account and for which a deduction has been made
In the case provided for in section 13, the parent’s income consists only of the income of the sole parent whose income must be taken into account pursuant to that section.
