Cash acceptance policy change

The BC government has launched an anti-money-laundering initiative which impacts the way universities collect tuition. To reduce risk, the province is limiting the amount of cash post-secondary institutions can collect. As of Aug. 1, 2019, TRU will no longer accept cash for tuition payments. Learn more.
