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 $250 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 $250, and a refund in full of any tuition and ancillary fees paid in advance for subsequent semesters.

After first ten days of program semester start - see Important Dates and Deadlines

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.

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.

Refunds for Students Paying International Fees to Full-time Programs of Instruction

International Students who submit formal written notification of withdrawal from a full-time program of instruction are entitled to a refund of tuition and ancillary fees in accordance with the following:

 

Before the 10th day of the current term of study

  1. For Student Visa refusal with proof from Embassy or High Commission, a $300 administrative fee will be applied and the balance of the tuition will be refunded provided that the student can demonstrate that they completed all required steps to obtain their study permit.  
  2. Students studying on Approval in Principle (AIP) are permitted to continue to study in subsequent terms. However, students must be aware of the risks relative to this policy. For example, if you are studying on AIP and your Student Visa application is refused, you will be subject to the policy outlined in this letter. Also, if you register for second semester and you receive a Visa refusal prior to the 10th day of the term, you will be eligible for a refund as outlined in paragraph (a) above. If you withdraw and cannot provide evidence of refusal, you will be issued a refund in accordance with the terms in paragraph (c) below. If you withdraw after the 10th day of the term of study, no refund for the term will be issued. However, any fees paid in advance for subsequent terms will be refunded.
  3. For students withdrawing before the 10th day of the current term of study or Student Visa refusal with no proof, refunds will be based on the following formula:
    • Refund = fees paid – ((International Student Tuition Fee ÷ Tuition Fee for Canadian Students) x $500)
  4. International students who do not attend, decide to defer their admission after the start date noted on their Letter of Admission (LOA), or withdraw within 10 business days of the beginning of the semester, shall receive a portion of the full tuition and ancillary fees paid for the semester or program period, calculated according to the following equation: 
    • Refund = fees paid – ((International Student Tuition Fee ÷ Tuition Fee for Canadian Students) x $500)

 

Please note: There will be no refunds after the semester deadline to withdraw 

  • If you withdraw after the 10th day of the current term of study, only subsequent semester fees paid in advance will be reimbursed.
  • After the 10th day of the current term of study, International Students shall receive a refund of any tuition and ancillary fees paid in advance for subsequent semesters.
  • This refund policy also applies to students who are attending alternate delivery models.

 

Please review the important dates and deadlines for Withdrawal and Registration. Payment deadlines for International students are noted on the Letter of Admission.

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.

*IMPORTANT* Please note:

  • a $300.00 administrative fee is withheld for Visa refusals (with proof).
  • for students withdrawing before the 10th day of class (with no proof of Visa refusal) we withhold the formula method that works out to be $2422.49 for FALL 2021 and beyond. 
  • no refunds are given for withdrawals after the 10th day of class.
