Most full-time students who pay Student Society fees and levies are required to participate in the CCSS Student Benefits Plan. Eligible students (those enrolled in eligible programs of nine class hours per week or more) will be automatically assessed fees at the time of registration. The fees for the Student Benefits Plan are currently $240 per year. These fees are assessed in two equal assessments of $120 for each of the fall and winter academic periods.
Student Benefit Plan opt–out
Students with existing coverage may choose to opt-out of the extended health and/or dental plan(s). Opt-out forms are available from the Student Benefits Plan office. Opt-out applications will not be considered after the opt-out deadlines:
- January 21, 2013
- October 07, 2013
Once a submitted opt-out request is approved, the opt-out status is carried forward. Students who wish to change their opt-out status must notify the Student Benefits Plan office before the appropriate deadline. Certain conditions apply.
