I know at least a few York students read this blog. Since this hasn't been well-publicized yet, I thought I should post it here:
In response to requests from students for greater flexibility in the way that courses may be completed following the strike, and during the current economic instability, the University is offering students the ability to drop Fall term and Full Year courses and transfer their tuition fees paid to the 2009/2010 academic year. Students may drop a Fall term course (term "F") or a full year (term "Y") course and may apply the tuition fees to courses taught in Winter 2009, Summer 2009 or Fall/Winter 2009/2010.
This arrangement will be available only up until April 30, 2010. Tuition fees may be applied on students' accounts towards next year's fees.
Tuition fees of all courses to be taken under the F and Y course tuition credit option must be paid by March 1, 2009 to take advantage of this option.
Students wishing to withdraw from an F term course must apply for this option by March 10, 2009. Students wishing to withdraw from a Y term course must apply by April 3, 2009. The completed application form should be directed to Ms Joanne Duklas, University Registrar, via fax at 416-736-5444 or through the Registrarial Services drop box in the Bennett Centre for Student Services.
Students on OSAP should speak with an adviser in Student Client Services in the Bennett Centre prior to dropping courses in order to ensure taking up this option will not affect their current status or put them into an overpayment status.
The application and further information regarding this opportunity will be posted at www.yorku.ca/backtoclass by the end of this week.
