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.

Information about the implications of missing each deadline is included below. Missing a deadline can affect your course registration, your grades, and your fee assessment. Please be sure to meet these deadlines; there is no fees appeal for missing a deadline affecting your fee assessment.

Avoid instalment charges

If you pay all Fall and Winter Term fees by the Fall Term Fee Payment Deadline or all Spring and Summer Term fees by the Spring 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 and your Spring Term fees must be paid by the Spring Term Fee Payment Deadline. Your Winter Term fees, plus the $40 instalment charge, are due by the Winter Term Fee Payment Deadline and your Summer Term fees, plus the $40 instalment charge, are due by the Summer Term Fees Payment Deadline.
