Paying Your Fees
Once you’ve enrolled in at least one course, your tuition invoice will update on ACORN around mid-July. From there, you need to either make a minimum tuition fee payment or defer your fees (if eligible) to become a registered student.
Viewing Your Fees
You will be able to view and print invoices from your Financial Account on ACORN starting after you enrol in at least once course. Please note that invoices are not mailed.
Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP)
If you have an RESP, and plan to make a withdrawal for the upcoming year, we can provide you with a Confirmation of Enrolment letter upon request (after you enrol in your courses).
A fee deferral allows eligible students to officially register for their studies without having to make a minimum fee payment until a later date.
Eligible students are those who are receiving government student loan or a scholarship (that is greater than their minimum required amount to register).
Deadline to defer your fees: August 16
You can pay for your fees through your bank (online, telephone or in-person), or by credit card through ACORN.
Whether you’re making a payment from within Canada, or outside of Canada, there is a secure way of paying your tuition fees.
Deadline to pay your fees: August 16
Planning Your Fees
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 upcoming year will be posted on the Student Accounts website.
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 second year.
Learn more information about deregulated programs and their fee structures.
Non-Academic Incidental Fees
Non-Academic incidental fees are amounts charged in addition to tuition which cover the costs of services and programs not otherwise funded.
