The Information Technology (IT) Fee is an agreement between the college Information Technology Services (ITS) department and the Students Association. It
is a small fee students pay each term with their tuition to offset costs for the college computer services, including helping pay for the college computer network, 93 computer labs, basic printing and other computer related services on campus. For more information, see What is the IT Fee?
A large part of your services are based on your Algonquin College network account. For more on your network account, see How do new students get a network account?
At Algonquin College, each course or program is flagged for whether it requires computers. If your course does need computers, the IT Fee is mandatory. If your course does not, you do not pay the IT Fee with your tuition, but you may still opt-in to have access to the computer services by visiting your registrar office and paying the fee.
To opt-in to the IT Fee
- Confirm you have not already paid some or all of the IT Fee.
- Contact the Registrar's Office to pay the fee. Make sure your information on file is correct, especially your email address.
- Wait 3 days for your network account to be created. Note:
- Get your network account username and password from your ACSIS account - Where can I find my network account information?
- If you do not have an account 4 days after you paid the fee, contact the Registrar's Office to confirm your information.
If you need assistance with computer related issues, come to the ITS Service Desk - Where are the ITS Service Desk locations?
