Fees

Understanding your fees

Student fees, the fees which all students must pay to attend the University of Toronto, are posted on your student account through the Student Web Service (ACORN).  It is important to understand that you are not registered until you have either paid the minimum fee payment or deferred your fees.  Fees are broken into several categories, Tuition Fees, Residence Fees, and Ancillary Fees. The largest expense will be the annual tuition fees and residence (if applicable). You will also need to consider other expenses such as living costs, accommodation fees and study materials. A wide range of financial support is available to help you cover the cost of your studies, throughout the duration of your degree. 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.

Registration

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.

The deadline to register - the deadline by which you must pay at least the minimum required payment or defer your fees on the basis of OSAP or another government loan - for the 2018-19 Fall/Winter academic session is August 29, 2018. If you do not pay at least the minimum required payment or defer your fees by August 30, you will be removed from your courses.

Information on fee deferral is found in the FAQ section below.

Tuition Fees

Daniels Faculty students are assessed for fees on either a program fee basis or on a per-course basis, depending on their total course load across the Fall/Winter session. Information on tuition fees for Undergraduate students may be the Student Accounts website.

Program Fees/Per-Course Fees

For the 2018-19 Fall/Winter academic session, students who are enrolled in 4.0 FCE or more (to a maximum of 6.0 FCE) in total across the Fall/Winter session will be assessed on a program fee basis. Students who are enrolled in 3.5 FCE or fewer in total across the Fall/Winter session will be assessed on a per-course basis.

All students are initially assessed on a program fee basis. The per-course fee assessment will automatically take place on two specific dates: September 19, 2018 and January 20, 2018. Note that January 20, 2019 is the last date that the per-course fee assessment will be available.

The program fee/per-course fee assessment is not the same as full-time/part-time status. Students enrolled in 2.5 FCE or fewer are part-time, whereas students who are enrolled in 3.0 FCE or more are full-time. A student who is enrolled in 2.5 FCE or fewer will be a part-time student paying per-course fees; a student who is enrolled in 3.0 FCE or 3.5 FCE will be a full-time student paying fees on a per-course basis; a student who is enrolled in 4.0 FCE or more (to a maximum of 6.0 FCE) will be a full-time student paying fees on a program fee basis.

Detailed information, including tuition and refund schedules, is available on the Student Accounts website. It is important to note that the refund deadlines do not correspond to the deadlines to drop a course without academic penalty.

Ancillary Fees

Please note the Ancillary Fees highlighted below for the 2018-19 academic year for your reference. A complete listing may be found on the University of Toronto's Planning and Budget website at http://www.planningandbudget.utoronto.ca/Tuition_and_Ancillary_Fees_Cover/tuition.htm
