Information for

Undergraduate Incidental Fees

Incidental fees are non-tuition fees charged to your student account each term you are enrolled in at least one on-campus course.  They must be covered in full by payment or a Promissory Note for you to become Fees Arranged.

  • If your on-campus course load reaches or exceeds 1.5 units in a four-month term, you are assessed applicable co-op fees and full-time incidental fees.

  • If you are enrolled in fewer than 1.5 on-campus credits, you will only be charged part-time incidentals. This means you will need to self-enrol in supplementary health and dental coverage and other student services, if you want to participate.

Refunds are available for some of these fees. Please review the information below for details.

Paying your Tuition?

The quickest and cheapest way to make a domestic bank payment is with an online banking bill payment using your student number.  If that isn’t possible, we can also accept a certified cheque, money order, or bank draft from a Canadian bank.

To make an international tuition payment, use our GlobalPay for Students service.  The service is convenient, cheaper than a traditional wire transfer, and posts quickly to your student account.  You can also pay in the currency of your choice and get a competitive exchange rate.

Don’t forget to check the date tuition is due to avoid late fees and account holds.
