Information about the Student Choice Initiative
at Brock University. The Ontario government’s new Student Choice
Initiative allows students to choose which optional fees to pay through an “opt out”
process. All students will continue to pay fees deemed
compulsory because they provide essential services. Brock offers extensive opportunities for you
to grow and develop outside of the classroom. These activities will enhance your university
experience and will allow you to engage with your campus community, explore your passions,
develop leadership skills and expand your knowledge. Ranked in the top three for student satisfaction
in Canada by Maclean’s magazine, Brock University boasts one of the best student experiences
in the country – in large part due to the programs and supports funded by your non-essential
student fees. For students registered in the Fall or Fall
and Winter sessions, in most cases you may opt out of non-essential fees prior to Sept
17, 2019. However, the exact opt out dates for each
fee will be outlined on the opt out page itself. Please be sure to review all services and
make an informed decision if you are choosing to opt out of any opportunities or services. You can find an outline of all your fees at
brocku.ca/safa/student-choice-initiative After careful review, and if you choose to,
you can opt out of these fees by logging in to your my.brocku.ca student portal and clicking
the StudentAnciOpt link on your Student Self Serve page. On this page, you’ll be able to review your
fees, and opt out of those you choose by clicking the Opt Out button beside each fee. Please note: you can opt in again any time
before the opt out date specified on this page. Once completed, changes pending will appear
on your Student Financial History and your student account will update to reflect the
changes in 1-3 business days. For more information on the Student Choice
Initiative, please visit brocku.ca/safa/student-choice-initiative
