The Student Financial Services Office is located on the 2nd floor in Dalton Hall, Room 202.

General Tuition and Fee Regulations

Tuition and Fees outlined below are as approved by the University of Prince Edward Island Board of Governors for the 2019/2020 Academic Year, and are subject to change without notice.

The University reserves the right to add, to alter, or amend these regulations at any time during the academic year.

The International student fee is administered to international undergraduate and graduate students in additional to regular tuition fees in accordance with the International Student Fee Policy.

Tuition and fees are listed in Canadian dollars, unless otherwise indicated.

 

Payment and Due Date Guidelines

Tuition & Fees for the 2019/20 Academic Year are due as follows:

  • Fall Term 2019 – September 13th at 4:00pm

  • Winter Term 2020 –January 17th at 4:00pm

  • Summer Sessions 2020 – See Timetable ( same as 100% refund date for each course)

All payments towards academic and residence fees may be made by 24/7 online/ telephone banking, cash, Interac, cheque, money order, Global Pay Student portal or Student Loan.

Students who pay their fees by cheque and subsequently have their cheque returned to the University will have the face value of the cheque plus any bank charges charged back to their account. In addition to this, a $20 administration charge will be levied against the student and the student will be subject to late fees.

 

Student Loan Considerations

Proceeds from Student Loan and Bursary sources must first be applied against educational debts incurred at the University of Prince Edward Island.  Any residual funds will be available  to the student after these debts have been paid.

Students financing part of all of their education with funds from a Canada Student Loan and/or a Provincial Student Loan are required to complete the necessary arrangements according to the provincial guidelines to ensure timely processing. Failure to follow this procedure may subject the student to late fees.

Students who intend to finance their education with student loan funds but have not received their Certificate of Eligibility must arrange the necessary temporary financing. Failure to do this will subject the student to a late fee.

Students whose educational costs are paid by an external organization which requires direct billing by the Student Financial Services Office must present proof of such arrangements by the posted deadlines.

 

Late Payment Regulations

If a student registers and subsequently decides not to attend this institution, it is their responsibility to cancel all registrations prior to the payment deadline to avoid any charges.

Payment of fees constitutes part of the registration procedures. Fees not paid in full by the payment deadline (during regular business hours) are subject to late fees and interest.  Interest is charged at a rate of 0.75% per month. This rate may change from time to time as market conditions fluctuate.

Students unable to make payment by the payment deadline are asked to complete Permission to Pay Later form and have it approved by the Student Financial Services Office. An approved Permission to Pay Later does not waive applicable late fees or interest but will ensure a student remains enrolled in their courses in the current term. Permission to Pay Later forms will not be approved for students owing a balance in a previous term.

If a student is registered and has not made payment or payment arrangements by the payment deadline, they may be de-registered from their courses and restricted from further registration until payment has been received.

Discretionary powers in exceptional circumstances will remain with the Comptroller in all cases relating to the payment of fees.

When a student is financially indebted to the University, no transcript, official letters, or parchment will be issued.

Refund Regulations

Students who withdraw from the University or from individual courses, voluntarily or otherwise before October 31st (or last business day in October) in the first term or February 28 (or the last business day in February) in the second term may be permitted a refund on part of their tuition paid, provided the student has followed proper procedure for dropping or discontinuing their course registrations.

After the final day to add/drop courses within the applicable term, students are required to complete a Discontinuation Form, which can be obtained with the Registrar’s Office, in order to discontinue a course and be eligible for any applicable refunds on tuition paid.  The date of withdrawal shall be the day the form is received.

Please note that fees other than tuition are not refundable after the payment deadline, and all refunds will be processed through the same payment method and to the same individual from which the original payment was made.

Refunds are based on discontinuation dates as follows:

  • Fall Term:
        • September 13th, 2019                  100% Refund
        • October 31st, 2019                       50% Refund
