Update on Student Association

September 19, 2016

That is why the university has decided, starting today, to manage the transfer to the SA of fees that have been collected from university students for the 2016-2017 academic year. This means that the university (working with SA staff) will flow funds directly to the insurance provider to cover the costs of your health-care plan, and to the SA to pay for the expenses of clubs, societies, outreach services, as well as legal aid and advocacy services. This will ensure that the university’s students receive ongoing support for the activities and services on which they rely.
