Paying Your Fees

Students pay their fees online through the Student Service Centre.  All graduate students are responsible for keeping up-to-date in paying tuition and student fees until the completion of their program.  Students who have an outstanding balance due on their fee account will encounter difficulties:

  • interest accrues on outstanding balances, adding to the amount owed
  • students are placed on "financial hold", restricting the ability to register in courses
  • a student cannot obtain official transcripts or a degree certificate with an outstanding fee balance

If you encounter financial difficulty during your studies, discuss this issue with your graduate supervisor and make an appointment at Student Financial Aid and Awards as soon as possible.
