The following is an abbreviated version of the fee regulations. Please consult the 2013/2014 Calendar for complete information.
Student bills are sent to your University of Lethbridge email account—they are not sent via Canada Post. You may also view your account summary by logging in to the Bridge (www.uleth.ca/bridge).
Once you register in courses, you are liable for tuition and general fees as outlined in Part 3 - Fees of the 2013/2014 University of Lethbridge Calendar.
You must make a payment towards your Spring semester tuition by February 1, or your registration will be cancelled and you will be assessed fees at a rate of $0.00 tuition and 20 percent of compulsory fees.
If your registration is cancelled for non-payment of fees, you will be withdrawn from all courses and access to Blackboard/Moodle will be denied. A $25 fee will be charged if you would like to be reinstated into your classes.
If you are a newly admitted or readmitted student, you must make a payment over and above your tuition deposit by February 1, or your registration will be cancelled and you will be assessed fees at a rate of $80.00 tuition and 20 percent of compulsory fees.
If you make a partial payment by February 1, you will not have your registration cancelled; however, interest at a rate of the Bank prime lending rate plus 5 percent per annum will be charged on any outstanding principal balance owing.
If you register and subsequently decide not to attend, it is your responsibility to cancel your registration (see “In Case You Decide Not to Attend” on page 8). Failure to cancel or withdraw from course(s) will result in the assessment of appropriate fees.
||Open Studies students should refer to the fee assessment schedule on the back of the Open Studies Registration form.|
In order to be permitted to graduate, all outstanding fees/accounts must be paid in full (see “Convocation”).
The Students’ Union Health/Dental Plan is mandatory for all full-time students, but students may opt out if they are covered under an alternate extended Health/Dental Plan. Opt out is an annual process. For the Spring 2014 semester, online opt-out opens November 24, 2013. The opt-out deadline is January 24, 2014.
For more information regarding opt-out, see the Students' Union website at www.ulsu.ca.
Like Canadian Students and Landed Immigrants, International Visa Student must also have valid, active health insurance while they are students at the University of Lethbridge. All international students MUST CONTACT the Health Centre (SU020) within the first two weeks of arriving at the University campus. The Health Centre staff will assist you with understanding how to use the Canadian health insurance system and ensure that you have adequate health insurance. For more information, call the Health Centre at 403-329-2484, Ext. 1.
Part-time students (less than 9.0 credit hours) will be charged an SRS fee of $65.20, which is 75% of that paid by full-time students ($86.95). Off-campus students are not assessed SRS fees, but may purchase a pass for $86.95.
