Registration Dates and Deadlines

As a University of Alberta student, you need to be aware of the deadlines outlined in the Academic Schedule. Deadlines are firm and strictly enforced to ensure fair treatment of all students.

    Notes

    1. Students who have not paid their fees in full by this date, or made satisfactory alternate arrangements, will be assessed late payment penalty charges. To avoid installment charges, all Fall/Winter fees must be paid by the Fall Term Fee Payment Deadline and Spring/Summer fees must be paid by the Spring Term Fee Payment Deadline. Refer to Deadline for Fee Payments in the University Calendar for details.
    2. Students withdrawing after this date will be assessed full fees.
    3. If you withdraw from a two-term course from October 4, 2018, to January 18, 2019, you will be assessed full fees for Fall Term. If your Faculty determines that you may have special permission to withdraw from January 21 to February 6, 2019, you will be assessed Fall Term fees and 50% of Winter Term fees. After February 6, 2019, you will be assessed full fees for both terms.

Avoid instalment charges

If you pay all Fall and Winter Term fees by the Fall Term Fee Payment Deadline, you will avoid a $40 instalment charge.

If you choose to pay by term, your Fall Term fees must be paid by the Fall Term Fee Payment Deadline. Your Winter Term fees, plus the $40 instalment charge, are due by the Winter Term Fee Payment Deadline.
