Self-service Resources and General Information

a.Fees and Payments

The University provides a self-service option via the Bridge for viewing the Account Summary by Term report, which includes fees charged and payments received by term. The University will send invoices to students’ University of Lethbridge email accounts in advance of key deadlines. Paper statements are not mailed. Inquiries about fees are directed to the Cash Office (AH144; 403-329-2469; cash.office@uleth.ca).

b.Anticipated Payments

Awarded student loans, sponsorships and other payments can be viewed on the Bridge in the Account Summary by Term report. Anticipated payments verified as in transit by the Cash Office can be viewed using the Anticipated Financial Aid link on the Account Summary by Term page. Anticipated funds are considered payments-in-progress and stop the assessment of interest charges and cancellation for non-payment processes, for charges up to or equal to the amount of funds expected to be received.

c.Government Loans and Grants

Students receive government approved student loans personally, with no portion coming to the University to pay for their semester charges directly.

Inquiries are directed to the Scholarship and Student Finance office (AH115; 403-329-2585).

For more information please see the Scholarship and Student Finance Website.

d.Scholarships and Bursaries

Inquiries are directed to the Scholarships and Student Finance office (AH115; 403-329-2585).

e.Holds Applied to Outstanding Accounts

Cash holds are placed on student accounts after fee deadlines when there is an outstanding balance owing. Students with outstanding fees on their account will not be able to apply to graduate or receive parchments, registration privileges, access to the Tuition and Enrolment Certificate (T2202 tax form) or official academic transcripts until all fees are paid in full.

f.Receipts and Tax Forms

Students can verify payments on their account by viewing the Account Summary by Term report on the Bridge. Printed receipts are not issued unless requested to the cash office. The Tuition and Enrolment Certificate (T2202) required for completing personal tax returns is available for download from the students’ Bridge accounts by the end of the following February. The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) requires all students include their social insurance number (SIN) on the T2202 form. This can be entered on the student’s Bridge Account under Personal Information - Update Social Insurance Number. This will update the student’s record so that the form includes the social insurance number. Students will be charged $5 for a printed T2202 from the Cash Office.
