Fees and charges



General information

Each student will be able to view a detailed assessment of fees and/or charges due on their student account within MyCampus. No fee statements will be mailed. Students are responsible for paying amounts owing or making payment arrangements (see methods of payment and settlement) by the fee deadlines specified in the academic schedule . Outstanding fees and charges must be paid before subsequent registration will be allowed.

Students with fees outstanding beyond the due date will be assessed a late payment fee and will be subject to the university's hold policy. Interest will be calculated at a monthly rate compounded on the monthly balance and will be applied to the student account at the end of the month. Students on hold are unable to register, view grades, order transcripts or graduate. Other services (e.g., library access, parking passes) may also be denied.

Tuition and fees

Tuition fees for graduate programs are charged on a fee-per-credit or flat-fee basis. To view current tuition and other fees, please visit gradstudies.uoit.ca/tuitionandfees.

Fee-per-credit programs

Graduate students enrolled in a fee-per-credit program are charged tuition fees based on the number of credits in which they have registered. Students should note that their full- or part-time status is not dependent on the number of credits or courses they take. If a student wishes to change their full- or part-time status, they must go through the formal process to do so.

Students in fee-per-credit programs will have tuition and compulsory fees assessed only upon registration in courses. Therefore, students in fee-per-credit programs should register in advance of the fee deadline in order to review their assessment of fees and ensure amounts owing are paid on time. Any student who registers in courses after the first day of the term is required to pay their fees immediately and may be assessed a late payment fee.

A graduate student in a fee-per-credit program will be charged a continuance fee for their continuing work on a major paper, project or thesis for each term extension beyond the normal degree components. The continuation fee will be based on three credits for part-time graduate students and six credits for full-time graduate students, plus ancillary fees.

A student in a fee-per-credit program dropping courses by the last day to drop courses and receive a 100 per cent refund of tuition fees will not be liable for tuition fees for those courses. Any student in a fee-per-credit program who drops a course after this date and up to the last day to drop courses with a 50 per cent refund will receive a 50 per cent refund of tuition fees. No tuition will be refunded for courses dropped after the last day to drop courses with a 50 per cent refund. Students in fee-per-credit programs wishing to drop courses should visit gradstudies.uoit.ca/paymentdeadlines for specific refund dates.

Flat-fee programs

Graduate students enrolled in a flat-fee program are charged tuition fees based on full- or part-time status in a graduate program. Students are expected to confirm their status at the time of their initial application. In addition, students are expected to be continuously enrolled and will, therefore, pay tuition and fees in each term until the completion of their program.

Students in flat-fee programs will normally be enrolled in a continuance course and will therefore have their fees assessed prior to registration in courses. For further details, please see the policy on registration .

A student in a flat-fee program withdrawing from their program by the last day to drop courses and receive a 100 per cent refund of tuition fees will not be liable for tuition fees. Any student in a flat-fee program who withdraws from their program after this date up to the last day to drop courses with a 50 per cent refund will receive a 50 per cent refund of tuition fees. No tuition will be refunded for program withdrawals after the last day to drop courses with a 50 per cent refund.

A student in a flat-fee program dropping a course or all courses is still responsible for tuition and fees. For further details, please see the policy on registration .

Methods of payment and deferment of fees

Please visit gradstudies.uoit.ca/paymentoptions for the most up-to-date details and instructions on payment and settlement types.

Ancillary and student organization fees

Ancillary and student organization fees are charged on a semester basis and are due at the same time as tuition. Ancillary fees are non-refundable after the last day to drop courses and receive a 100 per cent refund of tuition fees.

For further details on ancillary and student organization fees, please visit gradstudies.uoit.ca/tuitionandfees.

Health and dental insurance

Extended health and dental insurance fees are charged annually and are applied as part of fall semester fees or at the time of admission. These fees are charged to full-time students only.

Students dropping to part-time status before the opt-out date will receive a refund of health and dental fees. The rates are determined by the insurer. Students starting their program in the winter term or spring/summer sessions will have the fee applied on a pro-rated basis.

Full-time students who have pre-existing health insurance and have paid their tuition fees in full by the last day to drop courses are eligible to opt out by the opt-out deadline, which is available on the UOIT Student Union website. A portion of the health and dental fee is retained for administrative purposes.

International students are required to pay the University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP) fees in addition to extended health and dental insurance fees. The rates are determined by the insurer. Students starting their program in the winter term or spring/summer sessions will be assessed this fee on a pro-rated basis. Information on UHIP is available through the International office.

Additional information on the Extended Health and Dental plan can be found on the UOIT Student Union website.
