The guarantee certificate is a contract between you, AFE and your financial institution. It allows for your aid to be deposited into your bank account.
When you first apply to AFE, you will need to collect your guarantee certificate and take it to an accredited financial institution.
You will need to print your guarantee certificate, which you will find online in your AFE file.

You must claim your guarantee certificate in person at the Scholarships and Student Aid Office, 3600 McTavish, suite 3200.
Once you receive the AFE notification that your guarantee certificate has been processed, it may take one to two weeks before it arrives at our office. Guarantee certificates are printed at AFE's office in Quebec City and delivered to us on a weekly basis – typically on Wednesday afternoons. You can verify deliveries with our office in person.
