Check your balance

Please note: your SFU email is our primary method of communication with you: check your SFU email for your enrolment appointment date and time. Warning: forwarding your SFU email to another server can result in lost or failed transmission of important information.

Before you enrol

Your student account must be in good standing before you are eligible to enrol. If you're eligible for a tuition fee waiver or you have a valid School Associate Tuition Fee Certificate, you will be responsible for paying any remaining tuition fees, the student activity fee, student services fee, recreation-athletic fee, U-Pass fee and health-dental plan fee.

  • If you have equivalent health and dental coverage, you can opt out of the SFSS Health and/or Dental Plan online at www.studentcare.ca . You will need to provide proof of your other group benefits, such as a copy of your benefits card or a letter from the employer.

Check your account

Log in to your student account and go to Finances / Account Summary.  After you've enrolled and/or made class changes, view your student account: the system recalculates your fees immediately as you make any adds, drops, or other changes to your classes. Class drop penalties are calculated and posted to your account in the third week of classes.

All fees are detailed in the Academic Calendar. See fees for Undergraduate students or Graduate students.

Interest charge on outstanding fees

Outstanding fees on your student account must be paid by the due date of each term. You will be assessed a monthly interest charge on the outstanding overdue balance on your account. The rate is 2% per month (18% per annum).

If you have outstanding fees on your student account you cannot enrol in a subsequent term; order an official transcript; or any parchment for degrees, diplomas or certificates, and other sanctions will be applied.

Payment in full must show on your goSFU account for us to release the financial hold.
