FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Trent Central Student Association and Trent Part-Time Student Association Merger
Monday, March 23, 2015
The Trent Central Student Association (TCSA) is excited to announce the successful merger with the Trent Part-Time Students Association (TPSA) at Trent University, which will take effect in the 2015-2016 academic year.
The TCSA adopted a policy at the Association’s Annual General Meeting on January 29, 2015, that would allow for a merger with the TPSA pending a formal referendum of their membership. The referendum was called and voted for in the affirmative by 84% of an over 15% quorum. Full-time students will not be affected by the merger and will retain all services currently available to them.
For part-time students, changes will include:
In regards to the Student Benefits Plan being administered by the TCSA, any students taking 1.5 credits or less will be able to opt-in to the plan. Whereas, any student who is taking two (2) credits and above will automatically be enrolled into the benefit plan and have the option to opt-out providing proof of alternative coverage.
The TCSA will now represent all undergraduate students at Trent University. We would like the welcome all part-time students into our association.
