Third-party sponsorship

Sponsored students are those who are planning to have their tuition and fees funded by a third party, such as a company or outside agency.

Before you can reserve a seat in the program, that person or company must send confirmation to the Office of the Registrar. This letter must be emailed to to reserve your seat.

To help your sponsor, you can give them:

  1. a copy of your Offer of Admission email.
  2. a summary of your estimated costs, which you can find by using the Tuition and fees estimator.

The letter must come directly from your sponsor. It must be submitted on company letterhead or be from a company email address.

The letter must include student information, sponsor information, and funding information:

Student information:

  • student name
  • NorQuest student ID #
  • student’s program of study

Sponsor information:

  • organization name
  • contact person’s name and title
  • contact person’s phone number and/or email address
  • invoicing address

Funding information:

  • effective start and end date (exact dates or terms covered by the sponsorship)
  • amount funded, specify whether:
    • a precise amount will be funded (e.g. $1000) or,
    • tuition and all mandatory fees will be covered or,
    • provide a list of specific fees that are not covered (e.g. “we will pay all costs except for health and dental benefits”).
  • any additional information for NorQuest College

For information on mandatory fees and anticipated costs for a student, use the Tuition and fees estimator or visit Tuition and fees to review the tuition and fees for the student’s program.

If the Office of the Registrar does not receive your sponsor’s confirmation by the first day of classes, you remain responsible for the payment of tuition and related fees. Any fees that are not covered by your sponsor are also your responsibility.

Third-party payment

We will send an invoice directly to your sponsor once you have been enrolled.

The payment from your sponsor is due 30 days from the date of the invoice. You are responsible for paying any outstanding tuition and fees if this payment is not received. 

Refunds for sponsored students

If you are eligible for a refund (e.g. due to dropping a course before the drop deadline), we will send the refund to your sponsor. We will send a refund to you if you paid your own fees before your sponsor submitted their payment.
