Fees with an opt out option

Health and Dental: If you have proof of alternative health and dental coverage the option to opt out is available here. You must opt out before the fee deadline for the term.

Student Donations (including the Undergraduate Student Peer Assistance Bursary, Graduate Peer Assistance Bursary): All students are asked by the Students’ Union to make a tax deductible donation to the Student Peer Assistance Bursary program, which includes both the Undergraduate and Graduate Peer Assistance Bursaries. These bursaries are available to students in financial need.​

​In each of the Fall and Winter terms you are automatically charged $10.00. Your donation provides bursaries to other students with proven financial need. The donation is non-refundable after the term fee deadline.  The donation can be opted out one month prior to term start through the My Financials section of the Student Centre. The donation is non-refundable after the term fee deadline. ​

Students who choose to opt out of the student donation limit the maximum available payout of the bursary. Students who do not contribute to the bursary program can only receive up to 50% of the maximum available payout ($1500).​

Mandatory supplementary fees

Mandatory supplementary fees may be assessed for materials or services associated with certain courses. You can find out which courses have mandatory supplementary fees by:

  1. Reviewing "Class Notes" through the Class Search
  2. Referring to course outlines

Mandatory supplementary fees are assessed when you register in a course and are listed with your tuition and other fees in the "Finances" section under "Account Inquiry" in your Student Centre. Mandatory supplementary fees for courses are due by tuition fees payment deadline. In most cases, they are non-refundable after the last day to drop a course for the term(s); however, some courses may have earlier deadlines for refunds. When an earlier date is used it will be listed in the Class Notes section of the Schedule of Classes and on the faculty/department website.

More information on Mandatory supplementary fees can be found in Academic Calendar.
