Form of Payment

Unless otherwise authorized, fees must be paid in full each semester at the time of registration. Credits for scholarships or bursaries will be given only on the authority of the dean of graduate studies. A student applying for Canada student loans should try to make arrangements to pay fees from other sources, as loans cannot be authorized until the student is officially registered.

With regard to the British Columbia student assistance program, students are reminded to register as full time students in order to qualify to receive funds in a given semester, to retain funds received in a given semester, and to be granted interest free status for a given semester.

See "Payment of Fees". for a description of various payment methods.

Refunds

Withdrawal from Program

If a student withdraws from the graduate program without completing the degree before the end of the semester, refunds will be calculated from the date the student officially notifies the registrar in writing of his/her withdrawal from the University. Withdrawal in the first month of the semester will result in a refund of 50% of the tuition fees payable.No other refund will be made.

Change of Fee Status

Students whose registration status changes during a semester and within the first four weeks of classes, may be eligible for partial refund of the applicable fees and should consult the Office of the Registrar for further information. No other refund will be made.

Qualifying and Special Students

Fees and fee refunds for qualifying and special students are in accordance with the undergraduate fee schedule.

Overdue Accounts

Students in bad financial standing because of overdue University accounts will be precluded from registering in subsequent semesters. In addition, the University will withhold certain services. For example, the Office of the Registrar will not release various letters and documents including: statement of grades, official transcripts of academic record, and parchments for degrees, diplomas and certificates. Delinquent accounts will be forwarded to a collection agency for appropriate action.

Students with overdue accounts will be assessed a penalty of 2% after the first day of the fifth week of classes, and an additional 2% in each four week period thereafter. A minimum charge of $10 will apply to each penalty assessment. Total penalties will be adjusted to conform to Canadian laws and regulations when the final payment is made.

Completion of Program

If a student completes all requirements for the degree during the semester, the following refund schedule for total tuition fees payable will apply:

Completion in the first month of the semester

Refunds are applicable to the time extension surcharge, but not to the readmission, reinstatement or late registration fees. Refunds will be made only if the required minimum fee has been paid prior to the semester in which the degree requirements are completed.

Fee Waiver

The on-leave fee may be waived in exceptional circumstances, for example, from accident, illness or parenting, on the basis of medical documentation.

Late Submission Fee

The fee for submission to the library of thesis, project or extended essays after the deadline for submission, but prior to the first day of classes of the next semester, shall be one eighth of a full time fee unit.

The late submission fee applies to all degree completion requirements, including the master's final examinations.

Fees for Courses at Another Institution

A student registered at Simon Fraser University who takes a course at another institution of higher learning and has had this course approved in advance for credit towards the graduate program (see General Regulations) is responsible for enrolling at the other institution and paying fees assessed by that institution. When the student produces satisfactory evidence of tuition fee payment at the other institution, the Simon Fraser University fees for that semester will be decreased by this amount.

The student must maintain full time registration at Simon Fraser University. The SFU fee paid for that semester will be refunded to an amount not to exceed the lesser of the two amounts.

The `minimum fee for the degree' is at least six fee units for a master's degree and at least eight fee units for a doctoral degree.
