Upcoming Academic Terms: Info and Plans

Fees, Finances, Jobs

Student Financial Supports and Fee Reductions

To ease the financial burden that many students are facing:
  • Approximately $315,000 has been distributed through the two Student Emergency Funds;

  • Financial holds on student accounts have been removed in order to allow students to register for their next semesters;

  • Late payment fees have been reduced;

  • Parking fees have been suspended;

  • Recreation and Athletic fee has been suspended for Spring/Summer and Fall terms.

  • Most importantly, there is no increase to tuition this year.

  • Taken together, the tuition freeze and fee suspensions are estimated to save students approximately $4.65 million. Part of this lost revenue will be offset by campus energy and utility cost savings.

  • The CESB provides financial support to recent graduates and post-secondary students who are unable to work or find employment due to COVID-19, or are not earning over $1,000 per four-week period.
  • The CESB is available from May 10 until August 29, 2020 and provides $1,250 every four weeks for eligible students or $2,000 every four weeks for eligible students with disabilities or those with children or other dependents.
  • Students can find out more about the CESB at: https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/benefits/emergency-student-benefit.html

Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB)

  • If your job was adversely affected by the COVID-19 outbreak, you may be eligible for benefits under the new Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) announced by the Federal government.
  • You could be a Co-op/Internship student or simply a student who works part-time during the school year. Basically, if you earned $5,000 in the last year, and held a job (even a part-time job), that was terminated as a result of COVID-19, you may be eligible for $2,000 a month for four months through the CERB.
  • Students who believe they may be eligible to apply can do so now (application dates vary based on birth month). Find out more about how to apply for CERB.
