Good afternoon! We wanted to share some exciting news. The UWGSA has renegotiated our GRT fees, and have introduced three new refunds. If you are (1) living outside of Waterloo due to an event such as COVID-19, (2) a research-based student who has finished all courses, or (3) a course-work based student with a part time workload, you may be eligible.
