Changes to Office 365 | End of auto-forwarding

In order to enhance our IT security and to help minimize any future phishing attempts to your email account, the university will be disabling the ability to auto-forward your email in Office 365 beginning February 11, 2016. We are asking that users who currently have auto-forwarding enabled to please turn off auto-forwarding before Feb. 11 to prepare for this change.

Student Loans

Are you using government loans to pay your winter fees?

Check the Finances section of your Student Centre to ensure your loan is expected/has been received. All confirmed loan borrowers receive a 30-day fee deferral, so winter balances must be paid in full by February 22 to avoid late penalties. If you have concerns about your loan disbursement, email financialaid@ucalgary.ca or visit the fees and finances section of the registrar website for information on fee deadlines, deferrals and late penalties.
