      1. Students who receive one disbursement have their fees for the full academic year deducted from the single payment.
      2. Students who receive two disbursements have their fees for the academic year deducted proportionately to the disbursement payments.

5.4.3 Unpaid Fees

Fees unpaid by the payment deadlines published in the Academic Schedule (section 2.0) are subject to a carrying charge. Students who do not pay their fees by the payment deadline remain indebted for their fees until payment is made. Non-payment of fees does not constitute the official discontinuation of studies at Concordia University of Edmonton (Discontinuing Studies, section 4.3.3).

Concordia University of Edmonton withholds cheques, transcripts, statements of grades, and degrees from students with unpaid accounts or fines, restricts them from online services, and cancels or denies them future registration.

Students who withdraw from a course after Census Day and remain registered in other courses at Concordia University of Edmonton are ineligible for a reduction in fees.

Concordia University of Edmonton reduces Education Fees on a pro-rata basis for students who are required to discontinue their studies because of unacceptable grades or conduct.

The deadlines for any refunds or reduction in fees are published by program in the Academic Schedule, section 2.0. If a payment was made by credit card, the refund will be issued back to the credit card used to make payment. All other refunds are issued by cheque and are normally issued within four to six weeks.
