What types of post-secondary schools and programs apply for the CST Advantage Plan and other CST RESPs?

With CST Advantage Plan and other CST RESPs, we recognize any program that qualifies under the Income Tax Act (Canada), and institutions that range from community colleges and universities to vocational, technical, trade and religious schools. Distance learning and correspondence courses are also eligible. For full-time programs at eligible Canadian schools this means a program of at least 3 consecutive weeks in duration with at least ten hours of instruction each week. For eligible schools outside of Canada, the program must be at least 13 weeks in duration or for students enrolled full-time at a university, the program must be at least 3 weeks in duration. For part-time studies, the program must be at least 3 consecutive weeks for at least 12 hours per month at eligible Canadian schools or 13 weeks for schools outside of Canada.
