Tuition Fees

Registration Deadline

What is the difference between enrolment and registration? To enrol, you add courses. To register, you pay your tuition and incidental fees, or register without payment (defer fees).

Students must check their Account Invoice on the Student Web Service/ACORN, where they will find their account balance, other account details, and a link to the fee payment and service charge billing schedules on the Student Accounts website. The Student Accounts website posts all official fee information. Please familiarize yourself with this information as it is your responsibility to fund your studies and to make yourself aware of payment deadlines.

How to Register for Fall-Winter 2018-19

Fees for the 2018-19 academic year will be posted at http://www.fees.utoronto.ca/home.htm in mid-July. In addition to tuition fees, students are required to pay incidental fees. These include campus fees, student society fees and, in some professional programs, a placement fee.

International students must also pay for the University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP).

For students admitted on a part-time basis, the part-time fee is calculated at approximately 30% of the full-time fee. Only students admitted as part-time students may pay part-time fees; not all programs allow part-time registration. For detailed information on fees, please visit the Student Accounts website.

Late registration fees for the Fall session are assessed for any outstanding fees on September 15, 2018. We therefore recommend that you pay your fees at a Canadian bank or financial institution by August 24, 2018 to allow for processing time.

*Students cannot defer their fees if they have any outstanding fees (arrears) from a previous academic session.

Fees for both the Fall and Winter sessions are payable upon registration. You should pay your fees at a Canadian bank or financial institution by August 24, 2018 to avoid late registration fees. 

Detailed information, including tuitionrefund schedules, requesting to register without payment, and payment and service charge deadlines, is available on the Student Accounts website. General fees information can also be found on the School of Graduate Studies website.
