Accepting your Award
Recipients will be notified through the mail and through U of A e-mail. Please ensure that your mailing address is current in Bear Tracks, and check your U of A webmail regularly. You must have accepted your award in Bear Tracks to receive it.
In Bear Tracks under the heading Undergraduate Awards, select My Awards if you would like to authorize that you meet eligibility criteria, and agree to FOIPP terms, thus allowing the release of your personal information to the donor of the named award. Declining to release personal information to the donor will not affect your eligibility to receive the award.
Generally, awards are dispersed evenly over two terms, with half of the award applied to your Fall Term tuition, and the remaining half applied to your Winter Term tuition. If you receive an award in the Winter, it will be paid out in full to that term. Check Bear Tracks for more information after you accept the award.
Awards Applied to Tuition
The first disbursement of an award will begin to be credited to a student’s tuition account following the September 18th Fall Registration Deadline (the last day to add/delete Fall Term and Fall/Winter Term courses) if the award was accepted in Bear Tracks. Not all awards will be offered or credited to student tuition accounts prior to the September 28th Payment Deadline: last day for payment of Fall Term fees. Students are responsible for checking and paying the balance of their Fall Term fees before the deadline to avoid additional charges.
Awards cannot be credited to Residence Fees accounts.
If an award is credited to a student’s tuition account following payment of all fall term fees, a student will receive a refund cheque for the remaining balance beginning in mid-October. Refunds can be used where ever needed (Residence Fees, Books, Supplies, Food, etc.)
