Payment of Tuition and Fees
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 Fall semester tuition by October 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If your registration is cancelled for non-payment of fees, you will be withdrawn from all courses and access to Blackboard/Moodle will be denied.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 October 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 October 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.
Non-Attendance and Fee Liability
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”). Failure to cancel or withdraw from course(s) will result in the assessment of appropriate fees .
