Your tuition and fees must be paid on or before the first day of the term, regardless of your start date throughout the term. Your registration is not complete until all tuition and fees are paid in full.
In some cases, Alberta Works grant funded students and sponsored students may have their tuition paid after the first day of the term. See below for details.
Penalties for Late Payment
- Students who do not pay tuition and fees on time will be restricted from adding classes, receiving grades or transcripts, and using the library.
- Students with outstanding fees by the 10% point of the term will be charged a late fee of $100 and will lose access to MyQuest, Moodle, and other college services.
- Students who continue to have outstanding fees at the 20% point of the term will be withdrawn from their program or course and remain responsible for all assessed fees.
See the Withdrawal Chart of Academic and Financial Penalties and Refund Schedule for details about academic and financial penalties.
Grant-Funded Students Tuition and Fee Payments
If you have been approved for Alberta Works Income Support grant funding, your tuition and a portion of your fees will be paid directly to NorQuest and may arrive after the first day of the term.
However, you must pay all remaining fees and are subject to the same payment deadlines.
Sponsored Students Tuition and Fee Payments
If your tuition and fees are being paid by a sponsor (not including Alberta Works Income Support), contact the Office of the Registrar to request a Sponsorship Agreement form. Your seat in the program cannot be reserved and you cannot be registered in classes until your sponsor has completed the form to confirm that they will pay your tuition.
If the Office of the Registrar does not receive your sponsor’s confirmation by the first day of classes, you remain responsible for the payment of tuition and related fees. Any fees that are not covered by your sponsor are also your responsibility.
If you have paid all your fees and the college then receives double payment from the sponsoring agency, you will receive a full refund. Other refunds for sponsored students (e.g. due to dropping a course) will be issued directly to the sponsoring agency.
When applying, we recommend that students pay their application fee up front and then approach the sponsor for reimbursement.
Payment for Classes Starting After First Day of Term
You are required to pay for all classes you are registered in on or before the first 10% (drop period) of the term, regardless of the start date throughout the term. Any student taking Open Entry/Open Exit online or Open Studies courses will be required to pay at the time of registration. (See Open Entry/Open Exit Registration for further information.)
If you register in any courses after the first 10% (drop period) of a term, you will be required to pay all assessed tuition and fees at the time of registration. If fees are not paid in full at the time of registration, a $100 late penalty fee will be assessed. Check your MyQuest account to both view and pay for your tuition and fees.
Withdrawal from College for Outstanding Fees
If your full fees are not paid by the 20% point of the term or session, you will be withdrawn from your program or course and will remain responsible for all assessed fees. See the Withdrawal Chart of Academic and Financial Penalties and Refund Schedule for academic and financial penalties that will apply.
Students who pay their full fees within 48 hours of being withdrawn may request to be reinstated in their courses. These students will be required to pay an additional $100 reinstatement charge.
Former Students with Financial Holds
Students with outstanding fees must clear their debts with the college before being allowed to re-register or access any college services.
