Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak

In the continuing effort to reduce the global spread of the COVID-19 virus, Queen’s University is taking measures in concert with directives from the Province of Ontario and local public health authorities.

This means that all services of the Office of the University Registrar will be provided remotely until further notice.

These measures will limit our ability to provide specific services where staff are required to be physically on campus to fulfill requests, including production of:

  • Diploma orders
  • Student Photo ID Cards
  • Sending and receipt of hard copy mail (via Canada Post and/or courier services)

As staff within the Office of the University Registrar are working remotely, we would ask that your inquiries be directed via email as follows:

Winter 2021 Process Changes and Deadline Adjustments

In response to operational changes at the University due to the ongoing global pandemic, the university has implemented initiatives and process changes to help smooth out tuition and fee payments, awards disbursement and registration processes for students. These changes include:

  • Currently withholding monthly interest fees on unpaid balances
  • Currently waiving the $150 late fee on overdue accounts
  • Instituting more flexible deadlines for disbursement of all internal funding related to graduate student research. More information can be found at:
  • In recognition of the ongoing impacts of the pandemic and remote learning, the winter term course drop date without financial penalty for undergraduate students is being extended to March 5.
    • This provides undergraduate students more time and flexibility to settle into the term and make any adjustments to their winter term course load, as needed.
    • Prior to this extension, undergraduate students dropping a winter course would have avoided a financial penalty up until 22 January and would have received a partial financial credit for courses dropped between 23 January and 5 March.
    • Undergraduate students are encouraged to speak with an academic advisor in their faculty/school office before making the decision to drop a winter term 2021 course through SOLUS.
    • Undergraduate students who are receiving government student financial assistance (e.g. OSAP or equivalent in other provincial/territorial jurisdictions) are encouraged to consult with a Student Awards advisor before dropping a course, as any change in academic registration and/or assessed tuition may impact this funding  
    • Undergraduate students who dropped a winter term 2021 course after the previous deadline of January 22 will have their account credited.

Please note that Winter Term tuition and fees must be received no later than January 31st.
