IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT TUITION WAIVERS FOR FACULTY, ACADEMIC EXECUTIVES AND THEIR DEPENDENT CHILDREN

We are currently experiencing technical problems. If you are applying for credit-course Tuition Waivers for yourself or your dependent(s), you will need to use a manual process until the issue is resolved. If you’ve made an application using the manual process on or after January 12, 2021, Enrolment Services will be automatically applying a deferral for all credit-course tuition waivers until the technical issue is resolved. If you have already contacted Enrolment Services to request a deferral, your request will continue to be processed until January 25, 2021. For details and to learn more please visit the Tuition Waivers page.
