The security of Resolve On-Line Services depends both on Resolve and you, the user.


Resolve is committed to providing you with secure on-line services.

Resolve has taken measures to ensure that your electronic information changes with us are secure and that your privacy is protected.

Resolve On-Line Services use 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to protect your information. Encryption electronically scrambles the data stream between your computer and our server. This minimizes the risk that Internet hackers and other users will alter or view information being transmitted. You must be using a browser with 128-bit encryption in order to access this site. 128-bit SSL encryption is one of the most secure forms of encryption available in North America.


While every possible effort has been made to ensure the safety and integrity of Resolve On-Line Services, the Internet exists as a public network and therefore is outside of Resolve's control.

The User

As a user of Resolve On-Line Services, you must fulfill certain responsibilities to contribute to the security of your Nova Scotia Student Loan information.

  1. Keep your Password a secret! If you believe that your Password has been stolen or compromised, Contact Us immediately.
  2. If you leave your computer on after completing information changes with Resolve On-Line Services, clear the cache and close and re-open the browser to eliminate copies of Web page(s) that may have been stored on your computer's hard drive. If you are using Netscape Navigator, clear both your browser's disk cache and memory cache. If you are using Internet Explorer, clear your disk cache, then close and re-open your browser. For more information, see Technical FAQ.
  3. Never send confidential information such as your Social Insurance Number (SIN) via e-mail. Our e-mail does not have secure transmission capabilities.
  4. Use a browser that supports 128-bit encryption. Not sure if you have 128-bit encryption? See Browser Requirements, below.

If the screen refers to U.S. security or Domestic security, then your browser DOES SUPPORT 128-bit encryption.

  • Internet Explorer: Select Help from your browser's menu bar, then click on About Internet Explorer. Check the window that appears for a heading called Cipher Strength. If 128-bit appears to the right of Cipher Strength, then your browser supports 128-bit encryption.
