The University says that applicants must pay their fees prior to fee payment deadline and will be subsequently refunded if their application is successful.
It says all registered students are eligible for the bursary assistance, with the exception of students supported by sponsorship or scholarships schemes and students who are eligible for TSLB Schemes.
The applicants will need to have a GPA of 2.5 or better in the most recent semester/trimester and have a combined family income of not more than $25,000 a year.
