Student Bursary Levy
Through a referendum, Michener students ratified that all full and part-time students in base-funded programs will pay a $10 per academic year Student Bursary Levy which is collected with tuition as part of the Ancillary Fees (Alumni Fee). Students may choose to opt out by notifying the Registrar in writing. This opt-out would then be for the academic year (opt-outs must occur each year of study) and they would not be eligible for consideration to apply for the Michener Student Council Awards.
