Tuition Deposit & Commitment Fees

Students are required to pay a tuition deposit prior to registering for fall and winter semester courses.

The tuition deposit is applied as a payment toward tuition fees.

If fees are paid through a bank, allow seven working days for the payment to be applied to your TRU account. The system checks to see if the commitment fee has been paid prior to allowing you to register.

How much is my tuition deposit?

  • Tuition deposit: $300 for open program students and returning limited or selective program students. $500 for first-time limited or selective program students.
  • International students (54+ undergraduate credits, or enrolled in a post-baccalaureate or graduate program): $1,200
  • International students (0-53 undergraduate credits): $6,900 (see payment deadlines)

How to pay tuition and fees

Sponsored students
Sponsored students are not required to pay the tuition deposit before registration provided a tuition sponsorship application has been approved by TRU before the time of registration.

University preparation students
Domestic BC students admitted to the University Preparation program are not required to pay a tuition deposit, as this program is tuition free for domestic BC students. Students admitted to other preparatory programs and students admitted to a post-secondary program who are enrolling in preparatory courses who have an approved Adult Upgrading Grant application for the current term are not required to pay a deposit.
