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 

Quebec Residents:

Quebec Residents may need to reprove their fee status if they have been absent (ie. not enrolled) for more than 2 semesters (not counting the Summer term). Students may verify their legal status in Minerva (select the appropriate term) to confirm that the QC residency status is still active. Semesters for which students are recorded as being away on an officially approved leave of absence are not counted as enrolment semesters.

International students:

International students who are charged fees at the self-financed rate (all undergraduate or graduate level non-research programs) who are absent (ie not enrolled) for more than one term (excluding the summer), will be charged the tuition rate in effect for newly admitted students in the term in which they resume their studies. 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 policy is not applicable to Visiting and Special students as international students in these categories always pay the fees of the new academic year.
