Student Donation Fee Opt Out

As a full-time student in the B.Ed./Dip.Ed. program, you have the option of opting out of the Student Donation Fee ($30) that is collected as part of your tuition.  This fee is used by Students’ Council to enhance your time here — for instance, the pizza lunch that was provided on orientation day is possible as a result of this fee.  The Students’ Council Award is also funded through the donation fee. Please visit for more information
