What happens to my fees account when I cancel studies at UCT?
You or your parents/guardians must give notice of your intention to discontinue your studies by completing the prescribed form. This must be delivered to your faculty office in person or sent by registered mail.
A reduction on the academic fees may be considered in special circumstances, depending on when the notice of intention to discontinue studies is received. Please consult Academic Fees Section 2.2 in the Student Fees Handbook for relevant dates.
All cancellations are subject to the prescribed administration fee.
Note: fees owing are due immediately on cancellation of studies.
Why do I not always see a full course fee credit on my fees account when I withdraw from a course?
If you withdraw from individual courses that have a minimum duration of one semester, any fee reduction is dependent upon the date of withdrawal. Details can be obtained from the Fees Office.
