Information on Requests for 3rd Party Forms

A 3rd Party form is a form from outside 小猪视频 that requires confirmation of registration by a member of the Registrar鈥檚 office. A 3rd Party form is one where the form itself must be submitted and a Proof of Enrolment Letter cannot be used in place. These forms can include, but not limited to, Canada Pension Plan (CPP), Canada Pension Plan Disability (CPPD), Registered Education Saving Plan (RESP), etc.

Students have two options on how they can submit a 3rd party form to be completed by the Registrar鈥檚 office- in person, or via email. The student鈥檚 portion must be completed filled out before the Registrar鈥檚 office can verify and complete its portion of the form.

Students can bring all pages of the form to the Registrar鈥檚 office on campus to be filled out in person. Typically, the form will be filled out immediately and given back to the student who will then need to submit it to wherever it must go.听 Alternatively, students can email all pages of the form to enrolment@cbu.ca. The Registrar鈥檚 office staff will verify the information and complete their portion of the form before emailing it back to the student鈥檚 email address. If the student requires the completed form to be sent directly to a separate person, they must specifically state the person and email address in their original email to enrolment@cbu.ca. In this instance, the completed form will be sent to the separate email address and the student will be cc鈥檇 to confirm that it has been sent.

Please note: The Registrar鈥檚 office may need to adjust information on the form to confirm that it is correct. In this instance they will change and initial to indicate the confirmed change. As well, if a required field is not completed by the student, the Registrar鈥檚 office may need to send it back to the student to complete before they can verify and complete their own section of the form.
