TUITION and FEES
2013 TUITION FEES and PAYMENT
2013 summer tuition fees will assess Friday April 12, 2013. Please check your fees account for tuition fees owing. To access your fees account, log on to the Student Information System (SIS) via “My Records” and select “Fees Account.”
Students with outstanding fees owing from a previous semester or year will be restricted from registering for subsequent courses. In order to avoid delays in registration, please ensure that your fees account is paid in full.
Payment deadline is Friday May, 3, 2013. (before 4 p.m. for in-person payments at the Cashier's Office)
We must receive the required payment by the deadline date. Partial payments will not be accepted.
Payments may be made in person at the Cashier's office or through your bank as a bill payment.
Please allow 3-5 business days for tuition bill payments to arrive on time. Students who have not paid their fees in full will incur the late payment fee.
Newly Admitted Students: Students who have made an admission/confirmation deposit will have a credit outstanding on their fees account in the amount paid. Remember to deduct this amount from the total listed on the fees schedule and add any laptop or production materials fees (these amounts are included in the "balance" owing on yours fees account so there is no need to adjust).
Adding course(s) after your initial payment: If you add course(s) after you pay, it is your responsibility to pay for the additional course(s) the next business day. Otherwise you will incur a $50 late/deferred payment fee.
METHODS OF PAYMENT
Fees are payable to OCAD U in cash or by Interac, cheque or money order. There is a charge of $30 for each NSF (non-sufficient funds) or returned cheque.
OCAD U does NOT accept credit cards for tuition payment.
WHY WAIT IN LINE WHEN YOU CAN PAY ONLINE?
Online or telephone banking: Sign up with your bank for online or telephone banking. Add "Ontario College Art & Design" as a bill payment payee and use your seven digit student ID number as your account number. Payments made through banking will take up to five business days to show up on your fees account.
** Please double-check your student number (should start with 1 or 2) when making payment to ensure that the funds are properly applied to your account **
Cheques (by Mail): Cheques should be mailed to OCAD U to the attention of the Student Accounts Clerk, 100 McCaul Street, Toronto, ON M5T 1W1. Please include your student ID with all correspondence. Post-dated cheques are not accepted.
In-Person Payments: Payment can also be made in person to the Cashier, Monday to Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Cashier is located in the Rosalie Sharp Pavilion, 115 McCaul Street, Level 1.
Sponsored Students: If you are a sponsored student, and your fees are being paid in full by your sponsor, you can use one of the above payment methods to pay your fees OR you can request a deferment until your sponsorship payment is received by submitting a letter of sponsorship to the Student Accounts Clerk in the Finance office by Friday, May 3, 2013, 4 p.m.
Student Loan (OSAP and out-of-province students): Students who have applied for OSAP, any government-funded student loans through another province or any other assistance for 2013 summer may use their funding to pay their fees. Please note, funds cannot be released until after the first day of classes. Therefore students planning to use their government funding as a method of tuition payment will be subject to the late/deferred payment fee of $50 if fees are not paid by the tuition fee deadline date. No deferment is required.
OSAP students who indicated on their OSAP application form that they would like the Ministry to remit fees directly to the school, will have their fees remitted from their summer disbursement of funding. The Financial Aid office will take the full amount of summer fees or will only remit up to the amount that is available.
OSAP students who indicated on their OSAP application that they did not want the Ministry to remit fees to the school will be responsible for paying their fess once their funding is deposited into their bank account.
Contact the Financial Aid & Awards office at 416-977-6000 Ext. 231, 257 or 391 or email FinancialA@ocadu.ca.
OCAD U DOES NOT MAIL PAPER INVOICES. Students are expected to monitor their “Fees Account” through the Student Information System. The “Fees Account” page reflects the current tuition and fees as per course selection, the accumulated balance owing as the student makes changes, and any payments received and applied to the account. The amount owing is updated on the first business day following registration and is listed as “balance.” Late payment fees will be added after the payment deadline. Partial payments will not be accepted.
Non-receipt of an OCAD U email notice does not exempt you from meeting your financial obligations.
