Fees Payment Information

I have read and understand the important Fees Payment Information below,
and now wish to continue.


The Board of Governors sets all Lakehead University fees and reserves the right to modify published Fees and the regulations governing refunds without advance notice. Registration is not complete until the tuition and activity fees are paid. It is the policy of Lakehead University that payments for tuition, activity fees and other charges as outlined in the Schedule of Academic Fees be received according to the Fee Payment Options. Default of fees may result in a student's registration being cancelled. In addition, a student with amounts owing to the University will not be permitted to register in future sessions nor to receive a transcript or record of academic progress.

STUDENT RESPONSIBILITY

1. Notify the Office of the Registrar in writing or by using MyInfo of any change to his/her Registration status: i.e. dropping, adding and/or withdrawing from courses. All charges and outstanding fees accrued to the date of notification will remain due and payable on the student's account. The partial or total reimbursement of tuition fees depends on the official date of withdrawal as registered on the student's file.
2. Familiarize himself or herself with the financial and academic regulations of the University. (Payment of Fees, Schedule of Academic Fees, Refund Policies, Academic Schedule).
3. Regularly view the status of his/her account on MyInfo at http://www.lakeheadu.ca
4. Monitor his/her Lakehead University e-mail account for all University correspondence (see http://postoffice.lakeheadu.ca).
