Registration & Fees

At the beginning of each academic year, students must register and choose to either pay all tuition & fees in September, or defer payment until the following April. This must be done through ACORN.

Graduate students may apply for affiliation with Mississauga or Scarborough campus if they meet specific criteria. 

Registration Deadline

The deadline for registration is mid-September (check EEB Grad Handbook). If you register after the final date, you will be required to show proof of payment and register at SGS. A late registration fee of $44 plus a $5 per additional day to a max of $94 will be charged.

Finishing Students

Fees paid by doctoral students in the final year of their program are pro-rated and based on the 12-month academic year. These fees are based on the date the thesis is submitted to the School of Graduate Studies, not the date of the thesis defense and it can take SGS several weeks to adjust the final amount of tuition owed after the thesis is submitted. PhD students who submit their final thesis with all corrections and modifications by September 15 do not pay fees for the September session but, after this date, a charge applies for each month in which degree requirements are not completed by the 15th of the month.  

For a table of monthly charges, contact the EEB Grad Office: Students whose time limit for degree completion has expired but wish to return (for a maximum of 12 months) to defend a thesis are required to be reinstated and pay a reinstatement fee. For further information contact the EEB Graduate Administrator

Health Insurance

University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP)

The University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP) is a mandatory health insurance plan for all international and exchange students enrolled in an Ontario university. UHIP helps to cover the cost of hospital and medical services you may need to maintain your health while in Canada. You are automatically enrolled in UHIP, and the coverage charge will be listed on ROSI/ACORN, your student account.

Domestic students are already covered by provincial healthcare plans, and so are not eligible for UHIP.
