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


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

      Students that are sponsored (e.g. Aboriginal band funding) and do not meet the eligibility criteria should contact Financial Services to discuss whether a fee deferral can be applied.

      How can I check the status of my application?

      Fee deferral applications are processed in the order they are received.  If a fee deferral is approved and activated on your student account, it will be noted in your student account under "Holds".

      • >> Student Records

    • Students are responsible for ensuring that they have paid all fees and deposits in full, or that they have obtained an approved fee deferral, in advance of the Fee Payment Deadlines, or they will be de-registered from courses due to unpaid fees.

      Students with an approved fee deferral are responsible for ensuring that all fees and deposits are paid in full by the fee deferral expiry date. After the expiry date, students who still have outstanding fees on their student account may be subject to one or more $50.00 late fee penalties and an Accounts Receivable Hold.
