Join us at noon on Wednesday, Oct. 2 in the Mountain Room, Campus Activity Centre, to learn more about the economic impact of the university on the local community, the region, and the province. Lunch will be provided.
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.
