Tuition Fees

Tuition Fees, Payments and Deferrals - 2021-22

U of T does not mail fee invoices to students. You are informed of fees payable by way of the Student Web Service (ACORN) where you may view your account in invoice format. Every transaction is posted to your account. All students are expected to monitor all account activity. Tuition is updated in real time and always reflects the most current situation. If you have been offered admission to more than one University of Toronto Faculty/graduate unit, you must notify each Faculty/graduate unit of your decision to accept/decline their offers of admission. Otherwise, you will be invoiced for all programs to which you have been admitted.

Once your fees are paid, you will be considered a registered student. You must pay the minimum payment to register or your full fees by the deadline for that semester. Graduate and Undergraduate deadlines vary. For registration steps and deadlines and current tuition fee schedules, visit the Student Accounts website.
