After registration, each student will be able to view a detailed assessment of fees due, through the online registration process. No fee statements will be mailed. Students are responsible for checking and paying amounts owing by the fee deadlines specified in the academic schedule.
Students with fees outstanding beyond the due date will be assessed a late payment fee and will be subject to the university’s hold policy. Interest will be calculated at a monthly rate compounded on the monthly balance and will be applied to the student account at the end of the month. Students with accounts on hold are unable to register, view grades, order transcripts, or graduate. Other services (e.g. library access, parking passes) may also be denied. In all cases, outstanding fees must be paid before subsequent registration will be allowed.
A student dropping courses by the last day to drop courses and receive a 100 per cent refund of tuition fees will not be liable for tuition fees for those courses. After this date and up to the last day to drop courses with a 50 per cent refund, students will receive a 50 per cent refund of tuition fees. Ancillary fees are non-refundable after the last day to drop courses and receive a 100 per cent refund of tuition fees. No tuition will be refunded for courses dropped after the last day to drop courses with a 50 per cent refund. Students wishing to drop courses should consult the academic schedule in this calendar for specific refund dates.
