We are soon entering the Common OPT-OUT period for Fee Levy Groups.
Starting Sept 17th to Sept 30th
What is a fee-levy group?
Fee-levy groups are organizations that are funded through fees that are collected by the university along with tuition.
Fee-levy groups use this revenue to provide many services, resources and events that the university doesn’t offer, create good on-campus jobs for students, offer meaningful volunteer opportunities that help you learn new skills, and so much more!
QPIRG CONCORDIA is a Fee Levy Group
What does it mean to OPT OUT of a fee-levy group?
When you opt out of a fee-levy group, the group’s fee that you paid at the same time as your tuition is refunded to you.
Please note that getting a refund from a given group means that you are withdrawing your support from that group and will no longer be able to access its services, resources and events.
When and how can you opt out?
The common opt-out period for the Fall 2019 semester runs from Tuesday, September 17th to Monday, September 30th at participating locations. Details below.
You can opt-out at the location of an individual fee levy group during their advertised office hours from or, when applicable, by contacting the organization during the opt-out weeks to make an appointment.
