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, many computer labs, basic printing and other computer related services on campus. A large part of your the services at the college are based on your Algonquin College network account that you will receive after paying the IT Fee. 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 needs computers, the IT Fee is mandatory. If your course does not, you will not pay the IT Fee with your tuition. However you may still opt-in and pay the IT Fee to have access to the college computer services by visiting your registrar office and paying the fee. For more information, see What is the IT Fee?
