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?
Programs and courses requiring the use of computers will include the IT Fee in the tuition. If your course does not, the IT Fee will not be included in the tuition. Students in courses which do not include the IT Fee in the tuition, may opt-in and pay the IT Fee to have access to the college computer services.
Note: If the only reason you are paying the IT Fee is so you can print on campus, you do not need to pay the IT Fee. You can get a Guest print card from Card Services. For more on this, see How do I print on campus without a student or staff AC Card (ID Card)?
