Fee Deferrals

How do I know my fee deferral is approved? When does it expire?

Using the TRU Go app, under Academics, click on Notifications. Your fee deferral and expiry date will be listed.
- or -
Using myTRU, under the My Academic Record heading, click on Academic Profile. On the upper right-hand side of your profile, your Holds indicator will have a red badge. Click on the badge and look for “Awards Fee Deferral”. Your deferral expiry date (fees due date) is listed under “Reason”.

Your fees are due to be paid in full as soon as your funding is received, but no later than the expiry date of your fee deferral.

Students applying for student loans are strongly encouraged to apply two months in advance of their fee payment deadline.

Who is eligible for a fee deferral?

Student Awards & Financial Aid is responsible for the approval of fee deferrals (i.e. deferring your payment due date).

Canadian/permanent residents

Students who meet either of the following two conditions will have their tuition and fees deferred automatically:

  1. Students who have been approved for full-time or part-time student loans/grants through StudentAid BC
    • with TRU named as the institution and
    • prior to the start of classes, and
    • have approved, unrestricted, and assignable loans/grants greater than their total balance due.
  2. Have accepted an offer of scholarship or award which fully funds all tuition and fees, and are meeting all the conditions of the award (sufficient enrolment, athletic eligibility, etc.)

Manual fee deferrals will also be provided to students who can document assignable loan and grant funding from a province other than BC and meet the above conditions. Contact Student Awards & Financial Aid. Split enrolled students with government funding confirmed by a school other than TRU are not eligible for a fee deferral.


New international applicants

New international applicants are eligible for a deferral. Deferrals will normally be granted on a one-time basis only. All deferrals will expire one calendar year from the start date noted in the original Letter of Acceptance. If a student's request for a deferral is approved, TRU will hold and retain 100% of all paid tuition and other scheduled fees and apply these to the new semester. All tuition paid to TRU will be forfeited if the applicant does not register and begin classes within one calendar year of the start date noted in the original Letter of Acceptance.
