Undergraduate Incidental Fees Spring 2020

Deadline to opt out of optional and voluntary fees charged for Spring 2020 term is May 15, 2020.

In response to the COVID-19 situation, both online courses and courses that would normally have been offered on-campus are being delivered in online format for the Spring term. Incidental fees will continue to be charged based on the number of “on-campus” courses in which you’re enrolled for the Spring term.

  • If you are enrolled in 1.5 or more units that are “on-campus” courses being delivered online for Spring term, you will be charged the modified full-time Spring 2020 incidental fees.
  • If you are enrolled in fewer than 1.5 units that are “on-campus” courses being delivered online for Spring term, you will be charged the modified part-time Spring 2020 incidental fees.
  • If you are enrolled only in online courses for Spring term, you will not be charged any incidental fees.

The Ontario government’s Student Choice Initiative came into effect Fall 2019. As a result,

  • fees that previously represented several services as one charge are itemized on your bill; eg. the Student Services fee is displayed as six separate fees on your bill.
  • fees are identified as compulsory, optional or voluntary.
  • we are required to charge 13% HST on some optional fees.
  • you can choose to opt out of the optional and voluntary fees charged to your student account until the due date for the term.

On November 21, 2019, the Ontario Divisional Court issued a ruling regarding the Student Choice Initiative (SCI). The Ontario government is appealing the recent court decision. A final decision on the status of the SCI has not been determined. The process to opt out of optional and voluntary fees remains in effect for Spring 2020.
