Health and Dental Plan

In the spring of 2001, students voted in favour of an extended health and dental plan. The USSU Health & Dental Plan provides a comprehensive package of health, dental, vision and travel benefits to fill the gaps left by provincial medicare and a parent or spouse’s plan. For questions about your coverage status, plan details, enrolment and opt-out deadlines, visit Studentcare, or call 1-877-795-4428 (toll-free) or visit the Health & Dental Plan Office in Place Riel.

Student Infrastructure Fee

In March 2003 students voted to implement the Student Infrastructure Fee for the purpose of constructing and sustaining student buildings (Place Riel and the Memorial Union Building).


In 2006 undergraduate students voted to implement a mandatory Universal Transit Pass (U-Pass), this was made permanent in 2008. U-Pass offers students huge savings for transportation on Saskatoon Transit. Students with special circumstances may apply to the University of Saskatchewan Students Union (USSU) for an exemption from paying the U-Pass fee. For further information visit ussu.ca/upass/

Payment Deadlines

An electronic statement of tuition and student fees will be made available to students in PAWS on a regular basis. However, payment is due regardless of whether or not you receive a statement. In fact, depending on when you register and/or add classes, you may not receive a statement. It is important to check your account balance in PAWS if you have made any class changes. To check your current account, log in to PAWS.
