On November 21, 2019, Ontario’s Divisional Court overturned the Student Choice Initiative that directed some non-tuition fees to become optional. The province has applied for leave to appeal this decision, so uncertainty remains in the long term. At this time Carleton is respecting the court’s decision and will be closing our opt-out system effective immediately. As such, going forward, students will no longer be able to opt-out of any fees previously deemed to be optional non-tuition fees under the Student Choice Initiative. However, no fees will be charged retroactively. Carleton University is continuing to monitor the situation and will provide updates as they become available.
