The University recently undertook a complete evaluation of the sponsorship and invoicing process, which has resulted in a new standardized process.
The University defines a sponsor as a third party organization or group that is covering some or all of the costs of a student's fees. This includes (but is not limited to) Native Groups, Government Embassies, WSIB Claimants or Employers of students.
By now, you should have received a letter outlining the changes and the steps that you need to take. A copy of this letter can be found below.
Your student was also sent a letter that outlined the changes, and activities they will be responsible for in this new system. If you wish, for your records, a copy of it can be found below.
This is an entirely new process, and we ask for your understanding and support as we move forward. An email address has been created for sponsors (firstname.lastname@example.org) to contact us so we can better address your concerns.
Below are the new forms that are required to be completed. The first is the Sponsor Authorization to Invoice Form (SAIF) that is required for each student.
The second is the Sponsor Approval Request Form. This form is used for new organizations wishing to sponsor students at the University of Windsor.
