Keyano College is strengthening our sponsorship process to ensure that we are receiving consistent and correct information from sponsors and sponsored students. Please read through the guide to sponsorship entitled, Sponsorship 101. This will provide you with a comprehensive outline of responsibilities that need to be considered when sponsoring a student. This guide includes thorough details regarding the following aspects of sponsoring students at Keyano College:
When submitting your Confirmation of Sponsorship forms to Keyano, please ensure that if you require that a student's attendance record or grades be released to you that a Keyano College "Consent to Release/Obtain Information form" is signed by your sponsored student. If you are not located within Fort McMurray, students can also come into the Office of the Registrar and sign the Consent to Release/Obtain Information form here, allowing you access to their information.
All inquiries with respect to sponsorship are to be directed to the Financial Aid & Student Awards Coordinator at 780-791-4894, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
