Lack of notification or error on the part of the university does not exempt a student from paying the appropriate fee. Tuition fee increases, if applicable, become effective 1 May each year. Administrative fee increases become effective 01 September each year. Details regarding Fees will be published on the web.

Application Fee Refund Policy for Consecutive Education Programs1

It is the policy of OUAC/TEAS that all application fees are non-refundable. This includes the Application Service Fee, Transcript Request Fee, Additional Choices Fee, and Supplementary Fees.

At the discretion of the Education Registrar, Queen's may refund application fees as follows:

A. For applicants assessed as qualified for admission, Queen's may refund the Supplementary Fee ($80 for 2013-14) under the following circumstances:

1.
If the program option (IS, PJ, TE) or program track (ACE, ATE, OEE) or delivery format (full-time, part-time) for which the applicant has applied is not being offered for the specific year, providing that the applicant has not been offered an alternative program option, program track, or delivery format.

2.
If the IS teaching subject for which the applicant has applied is not being offered for the specific year, providing that the applicant has not been offered an alternative teaching subject or program option.

3.
If the TE BBT for which the applicant has applied is not being offered for the specific year, providing that the applicant has not been offered an alternative BBT, program or delivery option.

B. For applicants assessed as qualified for admission, Queen's may refund the Application Service Fee ($130 for 2013-14), Transcript Request Fee (to a maximum of $20), Additional Choice Fee, and Supplementary Fee under the following circumstance:

1.
If the program option (PJ, IS, TE) or program track (ACE, ATE, OEE) or delivery format (full-time, part-time) for which the applicant has applied is not being offered for the specific year, providing that the applicant has not been offered an alternative program option, program track, or delivery option, and that the original program was the sole choice of the applicant.


1All of the above are subject to change

2The following practices will apply to supplementary (materials) fees in the Faculty of Education:
1. Fees will be approved annually by the Programs, Admissions and Awards Committee. Instructors/coordinators will submit a request form by 30 May to be considered by the committee at the June meeting itemizing the materials, purposes and costs associated with the fee.
2. A list of materials and events that this money can be used for include guest speakers, special papers and consumable materials, course packs, photocopying beyond the per student per class allotment assigned $7.50 per student/full course, $3.75 per student/half course and $1.87 per student/quarter course), food, anything that the teacher candidate consumes or uses to make an artifact that they will keep. The ancillary fee collected must be used by the teacher candidate from whom it was collected.
3. Fees not approved will not be levied.
4. Fees will be set prior to course registration (usually 1 June).
5. Fees will be published on the Fees page of the Academic Calendar.
6. Fees will be levied and collected centrally (e.g, Student Services office, Finance Office).
7. Instructors are prohibited from collecting fees directly.
8. Instructors will clearly detail in the course syllabus the materials, purposes and costs associated with the fee.
9. Instructors are responsible for reporting the actual expenditures and balance of the ancillary fee charged for each course to the Programs, Admissions and Awards Committee.  The Committee shall maintain these reports for disclosure upon request to the Education Students' Society and the Society of Graduate and Professional Students.
10. There must be a zero balance at the end of the school year for each course collecting ancillary fees.  In cases where a residual balance does exist, the remaining funds will be re-allocated to the Events and Professional Activity Days account.

Faculty may not make it a requirement that students purchase access to online applications in order to access online assignments, tests and/or examinations that are required for successful completion of a credit course. These types of fees fall into the category of tuition-related compulsory ancillary fees. The costs associated with the administration of assignments, tests and examinations should be paid for out of operating revenue, and students should not be required to purchase these applications.

Disbursement of fees will be subject to University procurement and expenditure approval processes (e.g., approved by the Dean).
