- The student has to be enrolled with a minimum of 12 credits except during the last semester before graduation when the number of credits may drop to 9 credits;
- The student has to maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.00;
- Intensive, Freshman, and Masters Students are not eligible to benefit from Sibling Grant.
- If eligible, two siblings enrolled at the same time in the university will benefit from a 15% discount each; three or more siblings will be entitled to a 25% discount;
- In case of financial need, the siblings will have the possibility to raise the percentage given to a maximum of 40% by applying to the Work Study Grant;
- A 50% scholarship will limit the percentage of Sibling Grant to 10% and a 75% scholarship will totally eliminate the Sibling Grant discount.
