Deferred Admission

Students who defer their admission to the University will be subject to the tuition rates that are in effect for the term in which they are starting and not the term in which they were originally admitted.

Degree Transfers

International undergraduate students and students in non-research graduate programs who transfer degrees will be charged the tuition rate in effect for newly admitted students to those degrees in their term of transfer.

Break in Enrolment

International students who are charged fees at the self-financed rate (all undergraduate or graduate level non-research programs) who apply for readmission after an absence of more than one term (excluding the summer), will be charged the tuition rate in effect for newly admitted students in their term of readmission. Note that a term of withdrawal from the University is included in the calculation of the break in enrolment when students are not charged tuition for that term. Terms for which students are registered on an officially approved leave of absence, exchange or study away program are not calculated as part of a break in enrolment.

This change in policy is effective for all students registering as of Fall 2019.

This policy is not applicable to students in Continuing Studies, Visiting and Special students, as international students in these categories always pay the fees of the new academic year.

Prior to Fall 2019, a "break in enrolment" was defined as follows: Students who do not register for four (4) or more consecutive terms (including summer terms) are considered to have a break in enrolment and will be subject to the new fee schedule in effect for the term for which they are readmitted and enrolled.  For students registered prior to Fall 2019, this definition will only apply in the following situation: students registered in Fall 2018 and missing Winter 2019, Summer 2019 and Fall 2019 and re-enrolling only in Winter 2020.
