After receiving a Letter of Acceptance issued by TRU, all new international applicants are expected to begin their studies at TRU in the designated semester noted in their current Letter of Acceptance.
All new international applicants to TRU should be aware that tuition deposit and applicable fees for the first semester are non-refundable and non-transferable. It is the responsibility of the student to familiarize themselves with TRU refund rules and conditions, as well as important deadlines and to plan and budget accordingly.
a) Withdraw due to a failure to obtain a student permit prior to arrival at TRU are eligible for a full refund of tuition and general fees invoiced less a $200.00 administration fee (Total non-refundable including $100.00 application fee is $300.00). Students must notify TRU in writing and provide official documentation from IRCC indicating that their visa request was denied. TRU will verify with IRCC that the visa refusals are legitimate and after this process is complete send the request to our Finance office for processing. The process can take from 4 to 8 weeks to complete. Fees paid by credit card will be credited back to the original card used. In all other cases the fees will be refunded to the student either by check or wire transfer. If the original payment was made by a third party the student can grant permission for the refund to be sent directly to that party.
b) Students that wish to defer the start of their first semester of study to a future semester may do so only once and up to a maximum of one calendar year (i.e. a student accepted to the fall semester may defer until the next fall semester but not beyond). Once the deferral has expired, a student will need to reapply if they wish to commence studies at a later date. The deferral must be requested in writing and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the start of the semester. Once instruction begins policies (a) and (b) above apply.
