Important Financial Information
(Please read carefully)
Students who transfer from full-time on campus status to part-time or inactive status are not eligible for most fellowships, scholarships and awards (including QGA). If funding has already been provided for the term(s) of proposed part-time or inactive status, that funding must be returned to the School of Graduate Studies. Changing to part-time or inactive status may impact your repayment requirements to OSAP or other student loan provider.
Students who transfer from full-time to part-time are assessed half the full-term tuition fee while registered part-time.
Students who change to inactive status due to maternity/parental or medical leave will not pay tuition fees for the period of approved inactive status.
A change of registration status does not automatically result in any adjustment of tuition and fees already assessed. Students must contact the Office of the University Registrar - Records and Services to make any changes to the Pre-Authorized Payment Plan (ph. 613-533-6894). Adjustments made after the 15th day of the month will be applied the following month. Students must also contact the Society of Graduate and Professional Studies (SGPS) to have health and dental fees adjusted or cancelled (ph. 613-533-2924).
Students must return their student card to have student activity fees refunded or recalculated.
Part-time or inactive students are automatically considered to be "Off-Campus". This means no student activity fees will be charged, and you will have no access to certain university facilities and organizations. If you want or need access to these facilities please contact the School of Graduate Studies to arrange "On Campus" status. Information regarding Student Activity Fees is available from the Office of the University Registrar.
This change of status does not automatically result in any adjustment for the fees assessed or required for the Society of Graduate and Professional Students (SGPS) health and dental plan for graduate students. You must contact SGPS yourself to make any necessary arrangements. The contact information is: SGPS, Room 021, John Deutsch University Centre, Queen's University Kingston ON K7L 3N6 , tel. (613) 533-2924 fax. (613) 533-6376. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
To be considered for a continuation of part-time or inactive status, you must re-apply by the end of the period covered by your current request. If you do not re-apply, or, if a subsequent request is not granted, your study status will automatically revert to full-time status, with all the corresponding fees.
If you require additional information, please contact the School of Graduate Studies at 613-533-6100 or by email at email@example.com . The School is located in Gordon Hall, 4th Floor.
