TRU Announcement

Changes for the New Student Loan Year

Beginning Aug. 1, 2022

Dear Students,

TRU is changing how we process your student loan payments.

BC and Canada student loans

Once your student loan application is approved and your enrolment at TRU is confirmed, all of your funding will be deposited directly into your bank account. 

Prior to Aug. 1, 2022, a portion of your student loan and grant funds were being redirected to your TRU student account to pay for tuition and mandatory fees. This process was time-consuming, frustrating and confusing for many students—especially those with payments coming from multiple sources, and those transferring from other schools that do not follow this process.

Your loan, your responsibility

This change will empower you, the student, to successfully manage your loans and grants through choosing when and how you pay your fees. It will also allow TRU’s Student Awards and Financial Aid teams to serve our students better. The way fee deferrals are provided is unchanged—giving you ample time to receive your funding and then pay your TRU fees.
