The Master of Nursing (MN) Program bills by program fee, not by course credits. Upon acceptance into the MN program students are required to state their intent for full time or part time status. A full time student will be charged program fees over 6 semesters, which means fall, winter, and summer for two years. A part time student will be charged program fees over 9 semesters, which means fall, winter, and summer for three years.
Payment of fees is essential to remain in good standing in the program. All graduate students must register for a Thompson Rivers University (TRU) graduate course or courses in each of the following three semesters: fall, winter, and summer, unless they have an approved leave of absence (LOA).
Students who register via the Western Deans’ Agreement in a course at another university for one semester must also register in a TRU course during the same semester. Students may choose to register in a TRU “shell” course (NURS 6600 for Major Project or NURS 6700 for Major Paper or NURS 6800 for thesis) rather than a TRU extant course. A “shell” course is for zero credits. To register, please email email@example.com after consulting with your supervisor.
After all fees are paid (6 consecutive payments for full time graduate students and 9 consecutive payments for part time graduate students), students may extend their program. Students who extend their program must pay extension fees for each subsequent semester.
An example of a full-time set of program fees followed by an extension fee is below:
