Based on the message on behalf of Dr. Jonathan Driver, Vice President Academic and Provost:
The University is extending the summer term tuition and student fees payment deadline from May 25 to June 15. This extension gives you more time to seek additional funding or part-time work opportunities. (See below). SFU is also developing a payment plan option for summer term. This option will allow you to pay your tuition and fees balance by instalment over a longer period, without affecting your ability to enroll for the fall term. SFU is setting up a dedicated webpage for this program, and will publish full details and instructions as soon as possible. SFU will also email you again at that time. Paying in full by the deadline remains your best option. Alternatively, you will be able to make use of a payment plan. Note that the normal late fee of two per cent per month will still apply on any outstanding balance on your account after the payment deadline, and you will still need to pay off your balance by the end of summer term. However, with a payment plan, you will be permitted to register for fall term courses, even if you have not yet paid all your summer fees. If you are concerned about your ability to afford your tuition and student fees, please reach out for assistance and to investigate other funding sources:
The new webpage will provide instructions, links, and information for all these topics, and more. Again, SFU will let you know when it’s ready, so watch your inbox.
