The 2020 - 2021 Optional Fee Adjustment Period Ended On September 30, 2020.

Please note, late opt-outs will not be processed.

If you are a graduate, law, consecutive education student, or an undergraduate medical student the SGPS is your student society. Your elected executive team and the staff of the SGPS work for you.

Your student organization represents and advocates for you on all levels of University administration and lobbies the federal, provincial, and municipal governments on issues crucial to the well being and success of graduate and professional students.

The executive, elected representatives, and volunteer committee members represent graduate and professional interests and participate in the governance of the University Senate, the Board of Trustees, the University Council, and over 40 University Committees.

In response to the needs and concerns of our members, we also run several services including your Health and Dental Plan, a bursary program, the Peer Academic Advisors Program, the Graduate Peer Support Centre, and more.

To see if you have been assessed the fee for the SGPS Health and Dental Plan, check out your “printable fee statement” on SOLUS. If you have a charge labeled “SGPS Health and Dental Plan” you have been assessed the fee.
Instructions on how to find your “printable fee statement” can be found at www.queensu.ca/registrar/solus/finances
If you have any questions about the fees you have been assessed, please contact solus@queensu.ca

Questions about the SGPS Health and Dental Plan?

From Queen’s Alma Matter Society

Last night (August 11, 2020), Kingston Transit approved a temporary student bus pass option at Kingston City Council to allow for Queen’s Students to access public transit for the Fall Term at a reduced rate.

The AMS/SGPS are pleased to announce the temporary bus pass will be available for all eligible Queen’s students for $119. The pass will operate from September 1, 2020 until January 3, 2021. This fee will be paid to the City of Kingston online and the bus pass will be accessed through an app available for smartphones.

Students who wish to obtain a bus pass or learn more about the program can visit the Kingston Transit student page.

The page detailing information on behalf of the City will be finalized on August 24th, allowing for students to purchase the pass starting at that time. To view the City’s press release click here.

The AMS/SGPS will implement a bursary to increase accessibility of the student bus pass. All AMS and SGPS members who have purchased a bus pass will be able to access the bursary. Please stay tuned for more information.

When the situation changes, the SGPS will communicate any changes to you via the SGPS newsletter and our social media accounts (@QueensSGPS on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram).

The SGPS is not involved with the Student Card process.
