Government Assistance for Tuition Expenses (GATE) Funding
The GATE Policy of the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, states that, effective January 2012, “GATE no longer covers students whose cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) is below 1.0”.
For the purposes of this policy the relevant GPA is the cumulative GPA appearing on your transcript as at the end of the academic year – 2011/2012 and includes Semesters I, II and III (where applicable) for full-time/part-time students and for students enrolled in Evening programmes. This means that students who have not maintained a minimum cumulative GPA of 1.0 as at the end of the academic year 2011/2012 will be unable to access continued GATE Funding for the 2012/2013 academic year.
Such students therefore will be required to pay their own Tuition fees for academic year 2012/2013.
If you are among such students you must make arrangements to meet your tuition fees before you can register for the upcoming semester, recognizing that your registration cannot be completed unless you can fully meet your financial obligation to the University.
To find out more about the continued GATE Funding Policy Guidelines, please refer to the FAQs or contact Student Accounts, the Bursary at 662-2002 exts. 82137, 83382, 83379 or 82143.
