What is a special levy fee?

These fees are defined in the Policy for Compulsory Non-Academic Ancillary Fees as follows:

5. Student society fees may include levies for specific, limited projects, within the University including those for academic purposes. Such levies shall:

a. be approved by whatever process is required by the student society’s constitution for consideration of a fee increase, and by a referendum;

b. be in effect for a limited time period or include provision for periodic review;

c. be treated as part of the student society fee but be specifically listed on students’ accounts;

d. be paid by the University Registrar’s Office directly to the student society or to a restricted account for the purposes designated in writing by the student society. Such a designation must be approved by the council or board or directors of the society.
