Important Information about Fees and Payment:
Fees must be paid in full upon registration.  Students who do not pay their course fees will have their course registration cancelled and will remain liable for nonrefundable fees.  Access to Omnivox services and waitlists will be blocked.  If a student registration is cancelled for nonpayment of fees, the student must reapply in order to return in a subsequent semester.
