Opt Out Online

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. Please note that the opt-out deadline for Fall 2019 closed on October 1, 2019. Opt-outs for Winter 2020 will be open from January 1, 2020-January 31, 2020.

Opt-outs will be processed within a month of the opt-out deadline, and the funds will be deposited into the students' ONEcard accounts.

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.

I opted out by accident. What do I do?

If you mistakenly opted out of a fee we manage that you didn't mean to opt out of, please email dedicatedfees@su.ualberta.ca before the opt-out deadline and we will let you know what options are available.
