Undergraduate Incidental Fees Winter 2022

To ensure a consistent, predictable and supportive student experience for all students, regardless of where and how you are taking your course(s):

  • If you are enrolled in 1.5 or more units, you will be charged the full-time incidental fees.
  • If you are enrolled in fewer than 1.5 units, you will be charged the part-time incidental fees.

You can choose to opt out of the term-specific optional and voluntary fees charged to your student account by the opt out deadline for each term. All other incidental fees are related to facilities and services of an ongoing nature, many of which are available remotely, rather than to access/use of those services and facilities during specific terms; these incidental fees are compulsory.

Incidental fees charged to your student account may change as a result of adding/dropping/swapping courses or changing your program (including co-op to regular, regular to co-op, work term to academic term)
