      A fee deferral is an extension of the fee payment deadline, and can be granted if you meet the eligibility criteria.  

    • What is the eligibility criteria?

      To be eligible for a fee deferral, you must meet at least one of the following criteria: 

      1. you have an approved Canadian government student loan or Sallie Mae U.S. student loan for the term.
      2. you have an approved scholarship or award from a donor outside of Capilano University that meets or exceeds the fees you owe for the term, and the award is directly payable to Capilano University.
      3. you are approved to receive Work BC Skills Development Employment Benefits funding that meets or exceeds the fees you owe for the term. 
      4. you have applied and are eligible for Adult Upgrading Grant (AUG) funding for the term.
      5. you are a Capilano Excellence Scholarship (CAPX) winner. 


      If you meet the eligibility criteria, you should apply for a fee deferral. 

      If you are a sponsorship recipient (e.g. Aboriginal band funding) and do not meet the eligibility criteria listed above, you should contact Financial Services to discuss your options.
