Tuition is charged for providing the education, training and credentialing associated with a program. 

Differentiated tuition may be assessed based on the relatively high cost of delivery, student and/or market demand, and earning potential, and to sustain a program that is not core-funded. Differentiated tuition is also assessed for international (student visa) students.

  Late Payment Charge

A late payment charge will be assessed on past-due accounts.  The interest rate charged will be reviewed annually by Financial Services. 

Failure to pay tuition and other assessed fees may result in students being discontinued from class and will result in the placement of a financial hold on the student account, meaning:

  • the student may not apply or register at any Saskatchewan Polytechnic campus until the past-due account has been paid, and
  • transcripts, grades, certificates, diplomas or degrees, and any other completion documentation will be withheld until full payment is made

Sask Polytech may ask you to discontinue in your program, if you do not pay your tuition and do not qualify for the two-payment plan. If you are discontinued from class, you are still responsible to pay all non-refundable tuition and fees. If Sask Polytech is unable to collect your fees, we will send your account to a third-party collection agency, which may have a negative impact on your credit rating. Sask Polytech will remove the financial hold once tuition is paid in full or once you are approved in the two-payment plan.

In exceptional circumstances the dean has authority to waive tuition and/or other fees. The registrar or manager of Registration Services has authority to waive administrative and application fees.

Online credit card payments for tuition (including tuition deposits) and fees will be subject to a non-refundable convenience fee of 1.75%. Credit card payments will not be processed in person or by telephone. Note: Continuing education/extension programs and services are not subject to these payment restrictions and credit cards will be accepted without a convenience fee.
