Sessional Dates

School of Graduate Studies Sessional Dates

Daniels sets additional sessional dates specific to the MArch, MLA, MUD, and MVS programs such as elective course enrolment start dates. It is your responsibility to be aware of the general sessional dates set by SGS and the Daniels sessional dates for your program.  Please note that course add/drop dates are not the same as the fee refund schedule. Deadlines for fee payment, fee refund schedules and other financial dates are posted on the Student Accounts website.

Recommended tuition fee payment deadline for students registering or starting their program in the Fall to ensure payment is received by the registration deadline of September 15, and to avoid cancellation of registration and course enrolment.

The U of T does not mail fee invoices to students. You are informed of fees payable by way of 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.

Once your minimum payment to register is paid or you have deferred your fees, you will be considered a registered student.

For all financial inquiries, please refer to Student Accounts and the School of Graduate Studies.
