Money and jobs
The University of Saskatchewan (USask) worked with service providers to determine the student fees for the 2021 Winter Term.
Student fees—almost 80 per cent of which are collected by USask on behalf of a variety of third-party providers—go towards maintaining important programs, services and supports that help students succeed while taking courses at USask. Each group that receives a student fee was asked to consider their winter fees and to lower these fees where possible without compromising services provided or jeopardizing their financial viability.
Of note, undergraduate students will see a 25 per cent reduction in the USSU fee for infrastructure, while the USSU general student fee will be reduced by five percent. All students will see a 25 per cent reduction in the recreation fee and the athletics fee (note the athletics fee was not charged in fall 2020).
We remain sensitive to the financial challenges students are experiencing during this extraordinary time and all fee changes were carefully considered to ensure the ongoing sustainability and viability of the funded programs and services.
