Students’ Association Fee

The Students’ Association fee is a mandatory fee that entitles students to Students’ Association membership and all the benefits offered. Full-time students are assessed $6.51 per week of studies. Part-time students are required to pay $3.26 per week of studies. Fees are assessed at the time of registration and are non-refundable and non-transferable. The Students’ Association has implemented a building fund for the students in the Fort McMurray campuses. It is $1.12 per week for full-time students and $0.56 per week for part-time students. Students at regional learning centres pay the Associate Membership fee of $14.65 per term. Auditing students and senior citizens are not required to pay Students’ Association fees.

Health and Dental Plan Fees

Eligible full-time students are required to pay $126 per Fall and Winter semester (total of $252) for one complete year of the mandatory Extended Health & Dental plan offered by the Students’ Association of Keyano College (SAKC). This fee is assessed along with tuition and related fees during the registration process of the Office of the Registrar. Students with the plan may also purchase coverage for a spouse and/or dependent(s). Students already covered by an alternate plan (through parents, spouse, or employer), have one opportunity per year to opt out of the SAKC Benefits plan. They must do so within the first two weeks of the start date of their program by completing a waiver form online. Opt out waivers will remain on students’ records for all future academic years. Students wishing to reactivate coverage for the next academic year must complete an enrollment form to opt in. Visit Student Care's website and choose Students’ Association of Keyano College for additional information regarding deadlines, plan details, and to complete enrollment or opt out forms.
