Paying on behalf of a student?
The University considers the student to be the owner of their account and therefore is not able to release information to third parties, including parents. We appreciate your understanding of our commitment to protect student privacy and remain compliant with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act of Nova Scotia.
