Secure Credit Card Payment

We protect the security of your personal information during payment by using encryption protocols and software.

We follow the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard when handling credit card data.

UBC Employee Tuition Waivers

Most UBC employee groups are eligible for tuition fee waivers that reimburse or offset the cost of most UBC Extended Learning courses. Find out more about tuition waivers including information on eligibility and instructions on how to use your tuition fee benefit toward UBC Extended Learning courses.

Please submit your tuition waiver request at least one business day before the course start date and before registering for a UBC Extended Learning course.
