Thompson Rivers University Tuition Sponsorship

Tuition Sponsorship

TRU’s sponsorship model is centered around the needs of our students. Our goal is to ensure that we are providing support to our current and future students as they complete their post-secondary studies.

To ensure transparency, students are involved in the sponsorship process from the time of registration. All financial activity is maintained in the student’s account, giving students the information they need to work with their sponsors.

As each student’s agreement with their sponsor is unique, communication regarding how much to pay on behalf of a student will be between the sponsored student and sponsor. Students can obtain their Course Registration Data Form through myTRU, which shows their financial activity for each semester.

Ultimately sponsored students are responsible for the outstanding balance on their student account at all times.

A student whose tuition and/or fees have not been paid in full by the payment deadline for sponsored students,will be assessed a $75 penalty per term and charged 2% interest monthly. A financial hold will also be placed on the student’s account.

If a student’s account is in arrears, the student can make a payment to bring their account into good standing and then ask the sponsor for reimbursement.

TRU will not accept Tuition Sponsorship applications for courses that are less than two weeks long. If the course start and end date is within a two week period, fees must be paid in full before the course is taken. These fees can still be paid by someone other than the student; it just won’t be recorded by TRU as a formal sponsorship.

Assessment Centre fees must be prepaid before the service can be provided.

TRU recognizes the challenges faced by students in securing funding for their education. If a sponsor will not be covering all expenses for a student, other forms of financial assistance are available.
