Fees & Financial Aid
Once you’ve enrolled in courses, you need to either make a minimum tuition fee payment or defer your fees (if eligible) to become a registered student. Students who miss payment deadlines will be at risk of being removed from their courses! Payment deadlines will occur in mid to late August, and will be posted here as soon as they are available. Watch our Fee Payment Video below.
Viewing Your Fees
You will be able to view and print invoices from your Financial Account on ACORN starting July 17, 2017. Invoices are not mailed.
Fees can be paid through your bank (online, telephone, or in-person), or by credit card through ACORN.
For detailed instructions on how to make a fee payment, see below (dates to be updated as soon as they are available):
Students who are receiving OSAP or an out-of province loan may be eligible for a tuition fee deferral, as their funding would not be available until September. A fee deferral allows eligible students to officially register for their studies without having to make a minimum fee payment until a later date. Fee deferral requests begin in July through ACORN. Learn how to request a fee deferral!
Students receiving scholarship funding greater than their minimum required payment may request a fee deferral through the Office of the Registrar.
Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP)
If you have an RESP, you may need to submit an RESP Verification of Enrolment/Registration Request after enrolling in your courses. Watch this video to learn more!
How Are Tuition Fees Calculated?
Fees are comprised of course fees, along with incidental, system access, and ancillary fees. Your tuition fees are calculated on a per-credit basis. The more courses you take, the more you pay. If you drop a course, you may be eligible for a full or partial refund, depending on the date the course is dropped. Fee and refund schedules for the 2017-18 academic year will be posted on the Student Accounts website by June 2017.
For most students, course fees will be calculated on a per-credit basis throughout their degree. Some of our programs are deregulated and have higher fees starting in approximately second year. Learn more information about deregulated programs and their fee structures.
