Campaigns - CAP IT: Drop the drop fees - Street Team

Under the current policy, if an international student at Capilano University wishes to drop all of their courses, they will be charged a $500 administrative fee to do so. There does not seem to be a justification for this charge as domestic students who drop all their courses are not assessed this same fee.
We believe that all students should receive access to the same services provided by the university for the same fee. We are asking the university to eliminate this unfair fee and provide the same services to international students at the same cost as they charge domestic students.
