Fee payment deadlines

Pay your fees

Payments are not automatically deducted from your income. You will have to initiate a payment. Each payment is due at the end of the month. View the deadlines for each payment on your Student Centre under My Financials. The deadline date includes a three-day delay to allow for online payments. If the deadline is October 3rd, you should pay your fees by September 30th.

How to pay your fees

Approved funding sources

Your graduate program administrator must confirm that you receive funding from one of the following sources on the application form:

Department funding

  • Funding paid to you from a department within the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Departmental funding can include payment for teaching and/or research assistance, supervisor or trust funding, or any other types of funding provided by a department.
  • International tuition fee differential support — receiving funding from your department for your international tuition fee differential.

Internal scholarships

  • Funding paid to you through a scholarship administered by the Faculty of Graduate Studies.

External scholarships

  • Funding from a scholarship administered by an external agency to the university.
  • Examples of this type of scholarship could include NSERC or other external agencies.

Your graduate program administrator may ask for proof of external funding prior to completing the "Confirmation of Funding" section of the application.

Updating your payment plan

Changes to your fees

If your fees changed after the payment plan was initially approved, for eg, you changed from part-time to full-time status, contact your graduate program officer in the Faculty of Graduate Studies before the deadline for the new fees to be included in the plan. Your payment plan will not automatically adjust if you make changes to your fees. If you do not adjust your payment plan you may incur interest charges and a withhold may be placed on your account.

Check your fees and payment plan when an adjustment has been made. You can do this through your Student Centre under "Account Inquiry".

Cancelling your plan

If you wish to cancel a payment plan, your remaining fees should be paid in full to complete the payment plan.
