Science Student DonationThe Science Student Donation was begun as an initiative of the Science Students’ Council. Its purpose was to provide funds to the Faculty of Science for the support of undergraduate students that would otherwise be unavailable to Science students. The donation allocations are recommended by the Science Students’ Council each Fall on the basis of requests from individual departments made each Spring.
Over the past several years, a significant fraction of the donation has been directed to supplement laboratory apparatus as well as the expansion of computer labs. Other initiatives have included the purchase of audio-visual equipment for classrooms so that instructors can take advantage of more sophisticated technology in their lectures.
To opt out, log on to the Science Donations Opt-Out site after September 1st but before September 30th and fill in the form. If you opt out and you still owe tuition by the end of November, your opt-out fee will be deducted from your tuition. If not, an email will be sent to you telling you to pick up a cheque sometime around the end of November.
