NAITSA Fees

 

Changes to NAITSA fees

Starting in Fall 2014 semester, NAIT will be unveiling a New Academic Model aimed at offering flexibility and a holistic environment across campus. Under the new model, all students enrolled in credit programming will receive NAITSA benefits and services; fees will be assessed based on course credits and delivery method.

We will now be assessing our fees per credit:

  • A full time student (taking 9 credits or more) will be assessed $120.00 per semester
  • A part time student (taking less than 9 credits) will be assessed $13.35 per credit Example: If you are enrolled in two 3 credit courses in class you would pay 6 credits x $13.35 = $80.10
  • Online and distance courses will be assessed $3.11 per credit. Example: If you are enrolled in a 3 credit course online you would pay 3 credits x $3.11 = $9.33

 

U-Pass and Health & Dental Benefits

The NAIT Students’ Association offers two mandatory programs to all students. An extended Health & Dental program and Universal Transit Pass (U-PASS) that offers students access to transit in Edmonton, Strathcona County, and St. Albert.

  • U-Pass (per fall and winter semester) is $170
  • Health Plan fee: $113 per academic year and is charged in two payments of $56.50 per fall and winter semester
  • Dental Plan fee: $125 per academic year and is charged in two payments of $62.50 per fall and winter semester
  • U-Pass and Health & Dental Benefits are not offered to students enrolled in Spring or Summer classes.

  Part time students will now be assessed our Health & Dental and U-PASS programs.
