Provincial Tuition Waiver for former BC Youth in Care

Tuition and fees for former BC youth in care will be waived for students who are between 19-26 years of age (inclusive), attending a B.C. public post-secondary institution and who meet the attached criteria.

In order to apply for the waiver and determine if you qualify, please complete and sign the Consent Form, and deliver it to TRU Student Awards & Financial Support in Old Main 1631, or email it to

Once you have submitted the complete consent form to Student Awards, for the Fall 2017 campus based open programs, you will automatically be provided with a fee deferral until your eligibility is confirmed. (If your eligibility is subsequently denied, your fees will be due and payable, or you may withdraw from the courses without penalty.)

Once we have received confirmation of your eligibility from the Ministry of Children & Family Development (which can take from one to four weeks), your eligible tuition and fees will be credited back to your student account.
