The SFU Employee Tuition Waiver and the SFU Undergraduate Open Scholarship specifically indicate support for your tuition fees at SFU. You can receive funding from both up to the cost of your tuition. The SFU Undergraduate Open Scholarship is applied to your Student Account first, in week 3 of the term. The Open Undergraduate Scholarship funding does not cover the full amount of your tuition. Therefore, the SFU Employee Tuition Waiver will be applied after (usually in week 5 from start of classes), and will cover the remainder of your outstanding tuition fees.

For example, if your tuition is $2500 and you receive the Open Scholarship for $1200, the SFU Employee Tuition Waiver will cover the remaining $1300.
