Textbook Fee

These fees are extra, unless otherwise stated. Students are expected to purchase their own books prior to the first day of class. Books can be ordered online or at 2055 Notre Dame Ave, Building DM-11, Red River College Bookstore.

The Audit Option

This is the “no-tests, no-assignments, no-stress” course. Take any credit course for pure pleasure and enjoyment — without the work! (Some prerequisites may apply.) At your first class, let the instructor know that you are auditing, then participate and experience the joy of learning.

Annual Tuition Tax Receipt

Tuition expenses totalling more than $100 in a year are tax deductible. As well, if you take 12 hours of credit classes per month, you are eligible to claim a $60 per month education credit. T2202A’s will only be available at HUB and will no longer be mailed out by the College.
