Term liability dates determine:

  • When students become liable for fees.
  • When cooling off periods start.
  • How much money students can have back when they leave or suspend studies.

For undergraduate students in receipt of a tuition fee loan, the term liability dates determine: 

  • When we can make data returns to the SLC.
  • When students get maintenance funding.
