Community-Based Fees

The below resources can help you navigate fees and finances as a Community-Based student.

Details on Fees

The Registrar's site offers a further breakdown of what fees all undergraduate students are automatically assessed, and what fees can be opted out of.

Health Plan

All full-time students are automatically enrolled in the student health benefits plan. 

If you already have health coverage through work or within a family plan, it is possible to opt out of the UofC Health Plan and thus save these fees.

Dental Plan

Community-Based students who do not live within reasonable commuting distance of a dental provider that is a part of the Dental Plan network are able to opt out of this plan. While proof of alternative coverage is not required for opting out of the Dental Plan, you will need to include a copy of a letter provided to students to eligible Community-Based students, provided annually by the program.

Navigating Student Loans: 4-Years

Navigating student loans as a 4-Year Community-Based student can be tough. Financial Aid has thus created a series of videos to help you through this process, from applying, to navigating, and making changes. After-Degrees should refer to the information provided to all students enrolled full-time at the University of Calgary.
