Using a third party sponsor / First Nations or Métis organization to pay tuition
Please ensure your sponsor submits the appropriate sponsorship authorization form no later than the tuition fee deadline for the term (second week of classes -- see www.sfu.ca/students/deadlines).
- Indigenous (First Nations) and Métis Student Sponsorship Authorization (pdf)
If books and supplies are included, we will forward the form to the SFU Indigenous Student Centre on your behalf. (For invoicing purposes, the purchase period is 2 weeks before the start of the term until the end of Week 3 of the term.)
- General Student Sponsorship Authorization (pdf) - for cohorts and group sponsorships only
Employer paying for your tuition ?
Students are responsible for providing their employer with an invoice. To print the invoice, please log into goSFU, scroll to the Finances section, click Account Inquiry, click Downloadable Account Statement by Term, and select the term you desire. Please submit the invoice to your employer to initiate direct payment to SFU.
Any charges not included in the sponsorship are the responsibility of the student. See www.sfu.ca/students/fees/howtopay.
Any charges that will not be covered by the sponsor/band are due on the regular tuition deadline, and if not paid before the tuition deadline they will be subject to a 2% per month late fee penalty. Your detailed student account information is available on goSFU under "Finances: Account Summary".
Third party sponsorship forms are processed by the end of week 4 of the term. Sponsored students will have their tuition deferred on their student account reflected as "Deferred to third party". An invoice requesting payment will be submitted to the sponsor according to the following timelines.
|Fall term (September - December)||Invoiced mid-October|
|Spring term (January - April)||Invoiced mid-February|
|Summer term (May - August)||Invoiced mid-June|
