Tuition Fees and Expenses

What am I paying for?

Costs will vary depending on the program.

Your fees include ancillary fees, tuition and any incidental fees associated with your program.

Tuition fee policies are established by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU), as are policies for refund and College-levied incidental fees. All Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology in Ontario must adhere to these policies.

Fee payment changes for students

Effective for the 2016-2017 academic year, there is a new fee policy in effect in the province of Ontario. All Ontario Colleges must adhere to the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities policies on tuition and ancillary fee billing. The most significant change resulting from the policy is the implementation of a one-time non-refundable deposit fee, required to confirm your application at the beginning of each academic year. The deposit is applied to the students account reducing the balance of tuition fees. Balance of fee payment deadlines have been shifted closer to the beginning of the term of study, which is a benefit to you the student.  

Where the number of credits in the normal course load is exceeded because students have been granted permission to enrol in additional subjects or are required to take remedial courses in addition to the normal course load requirements for their program, they will be assessed additional tuition fees for each extra subject. The fees for these extra subjects will be the same fee that a part-time student is required to pay. Payment of this fee is due at the time of registration for the extra subject.

Please note that dropping courses may not necessarily result in a reduction of fees.

If you choose to withdraw from college prior to selecting your timetable, please notify the college in writing in order to be eligible for a refund of tuition and ancillary fees paid minus non-refundable deposit of $500 due June 15.

After Registration, up to the First Ten days of program semester start

Within 10 business days of the beginning of a semester or the beginning of the period for which the student paid fees, students that are eligible for funding under the College Funding Framework are entitled to a refund of the full tuition and ancillary fees for the semester or program period less $500, and a refund in full of any tuition and ancillary fees paid in advance for subsequent semesters.

If you withdraw from college after the first ten days of the program semester start, the tuition and ancillary fees for the current semester are non-refundable. All prepaid semesters beyond the current semester are refundable.

Students who submit formal notification of withdrawal from a full-time program of instruction, are entitled to a refund of tuition and ancillary fees as follows:

  1. Within 10 business days of the beginning of a semester or the beginning of the period for which the student paid fees, students that are eligible for funding under the College Funding Framework are entitled to a refund of the full tuition and ancillary fees for the semester or program period less $500, and a refund in full of any tuition and ancillary fees paid in advance for subsequent semesters.
  2. Within 10 business days of the beginning of a semester or the beginning of the period for which the student paid fees, students paying international student fees are entitled to a refund of a portion of the full tuition and ancillary fees paid for the semester or program period as calculated according to the following equation:

Refund = fees paid - international student tuition fee x $500
tuition fee for CFF students

CFF Students= students that are eligible for funding under the College Funding Framework

As well, a refund in full is to be paid for any tuition and ancillary fees paid in advance for subsequent semesters.

For OSAP students, any refund, less the non-refundable registration charge, will be directed to the National Student Loans Service Centre to pay down current year OSAP debt.

Please note that dropping courses may not necessarily result in a reduction of fees. Refunds will be paid by cheque to the student or sponsoring agency, if applicable.

In extenuating circumstances such as an unexpected medical problem or a death in the family, the student may appeal a refund decision. These requests must be submitted in writing, along with appropriate supporting documentation to the Office of the Registrar.

Please note: Refund appeals will only be considered if received within the same academic year. For students whose fees have been paid by OSAP or a sponsoring agency, refunds will be sent to the appropriate agency.
