All admitted students are responsible for securing their own sponsorship, as the College does not provide sponsorship. Tanzanian students who have been admitted have the option to explore funding through loans from the Higher Education Students Loans Board (HESLB), provided they meet the HESLB criteria for loans.

Alternatively, students may choose to privately fund their education by covering the tuition fees themselves.
