Winter 2021 general fees

Campus Recreation, Athletics and UPASS charges aren't being charged for Winter 2021. If you've had these fees assessed and paid them, you'll have had the fees reversed. If the reversal resulted in a credit on your student account, the credit will automatically apply to winter term fees, or you can request a refund through Student Centre.
