FEE PAYMENT

Friday, May 4, 2012 is the deadline to pay spring tuition fees. Students who have not paid their fees in full, submitted a Student Loan Deferment Form* to the Financial Aid & Awards Office, OR provided proof of sponsorship to the Student Accounts Clerk by this deadline will incur a $50 late payment fee.

*Please note that students must apply for financial aid (OSAP or other funding) through the Financial Aid & Awards office by Friday, April 27, 2012 in order to request a Student Loan Deferment.

Students who register for courses after May 4, 2012 must pay their fees in full, including the $70 late registration fee, by the next business day. Students who do not pay their fees in full the first business day after registering will incur a $50 late payment fee.

Students will be held responsible for all course registrations.

OCAD U does not mail paper invoices. Students are expected to monitor their ‘Fees Account’ through their on-line records My Records. The ‘Fees Account’ page reflects tuition, fees and credits for each registered or dropped course, the accumulated balance owing, and payments submitted as of the previous business day.

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.
