Welcome to the Opt Out System
To enhance your university experience, the Students' Union provides a myriad of services which are maintained through the Dedicated Fees portion of your Student Fees. Dedicated fees are those created by a referendum stating a specific use for the funds collected.
Some of these fees permit students to 'opt-out' of them if the student is either philosophically opposed to these fees or cannot afford them. Students who choose to opt out must complete an opt-out form on this webpage each term, and for each individual fee, during the opt-out period for that particular fee.
Once you have opted out of a fee, there is no method to opt back in for that term. By opting out of a fee, you will likely lose access to the services provided under the fee (this can be confirmed through the fee's receiving organization).
Because these fees are only paid by undergraduate students, refunds are only provided to undergraduate students. Graduate students are not eligible to opt-out.
Once the opt-out deadline for a fee has passed, no further opt-outs of the fee are permitted for that term.
Opt-outs will be processed within a month of the opt-out deadline, and the funds will be deposited into the students' ONEcard accounts.
Health & Dental Plan
This webpage is not used for opting out of the undergraduate health & dental plan. To opt out out of the health & dental plan, please visit the studentcare website.
If you qualify for an opt out, it will be automatically applied to your ONEcard account within thirty days of the opt-out deadline.
By opting out of a fee, you might lose access to the services provided under the fee. Please confirm with the services provider directly for details.
Double-check that your Student ID# and your CCID are both entered correctly. If either your Student ID number or CCID are entered incorrectly, you will not receive your refund and we will be unable to notify you of the error.
By submitting this request, you are authorizing the University of Alberta Students' Union to access relevant records to confirm your enrolment status and fees assessment.
IMPORTANT: This form is NOT the opt-out for Health & Dental plan. To opt out of Health & Dental, please go to ihaveaplan.ca.
