Information for Sponsored Students and Sponsoring Agencies


*** Full-time students (9 or more qualifying credits per term) are automatically charged the Health Plan and the U-Pass. For opt-out/in information please visit the UWSA website.

A Sponsor is a third-party entity, such as an indigenous band, community organization, or employer that agrees to pay The University of Winnipeg for student tuition and associated fees.

To receive an invoice for student(s) tuition, sponsors need to submit a completed Authorization to Invoice Form PDF version.  This form must be returned to Student Financial Services before the class start date for each term.


  • This authorization MUST be completed by the Sponsoring agency. Forms or letters addressed to students are not considered as authorization.
  • For books and supplies, please contact the Bookstore on campus (Follett Canada) directly for sponsorship information.
  • If the form is not completed and submitted to Student Financial Services, the student will not be officially recognized as a sponsored student. The student account will be assessed a late payment fine on the standard assessment schedule and/or may have their registration cancelled.
  • Health insurance coverage and the UWSA Transit U-Pass are mandatory for full-time students attending the university. If students have alternate health coverage from another agency it is their responsibility to opt out of The University of Winnipeg Student Association (UWSA) Health Plan before the blackout date.  For more information about the U-Pass please visit the UWSA’s website.
  • If the authorization has a dollar limit or if specific fees are not covered, the student is responsible for payment of the remaining balance by the tuition deadline.
  • Invoices are mailed to Sponsors following the published add/drop deadline for each session.
  • Should the Sponsor fail to satisfy the account balance, the student will have a fee hold applied to their account. A fee hold prevents future registration, graduation and ordering official documents such as transcripts.
