Sponsored students are those for whom tuition and fees will be paid directly to SAIT by a department of the federal government of Canada, a department of the Province of Alberta, an Aboriginal band, or by a business or organization.
If you're being sponsored to attend SAIT, make sure you:
- Meet with your sponsor to arrange sponsorship agreement details;
- Submit a SAIT application form with complete transcripts and the application fee. If the sponsor is paying for the application fee, a company letter indicating the billing address and/or a purchase order must also be included;
- Submit a sponsorship letter to the Office of the Registrar after you have been accepted into the program. The letter must confirm in writing the agreement for your sponsorship, the amount of tuition your sponsor will cover, and a contact number and billing address for your sponsor. A signed purchase order for services may be provided in lieu of a sponsorship letter. Do not include books and supply costs in the sponsorship letter - your sponsor should do this online (see below).
Note: The sponsorship will need to be renewed each term with a new sponsor letter or purchase order.
- Request that your sponsor complete the SAIT Bookstore's Sponsored Student form if they are covering the cost of your books and supplies. This is applicable if you are picking up your materials at the SAIT Bookstore.
The sponsor will be invoiced in accordance with the conditions of the sponsorship agreement. Invoices are payable 30 days from the date of invoice. Sponsor invoices not paid within the net 30 day term may be cancelled by SAIT and the student will be required to pay their outstanding fees or withdraw from their program.
The sponsor may cancel their sponsorship of a student via written notice 30 days prior to the student’s course or program start date. Cancellations by either the sponsor or student are subject to the terms and conditions contained within SAIT’s administration policies, including cancellation fees.
A change in sponsorship resulting in a refund owing will be issued by cheque to the sponsor’s address on file.
