Fee Deferral

If you have applied for OSAP, government assistance from another province, or have received a scholarship from U of T, you may request a fee deferral.

What is a Fee Deferral?

In order to register for the upcoming session, U of T requires each student make a specified minimum payment toward their tuition fees by the deadline to pay or defer fees. Students who fail to register by the deadline will be removed from their courses.

The University understands students receiving OSAP or a Faculty or U of T scholarship will receive their funds at a later date. In these instances, students may request fee deferrals, so they can be registered without making the minimum payment.

Fee deferral is not automatic.

Students can defer their fees through ACORN/ROSI. If you successfully defer your fees, you will be registered for the Fall Session. However, beginning October 15, a service charge of 1.5% per month will be applied to your outstanding fees.

OSAP Recipients

If you have applied for OSAP, you can defer your tuition fees, which will allow you to register without payment. You must defer your fees through ACORN/ROSI.

If you are unable to defer your fees online, contact the Office of the Registrar.

Scholarship Recipients

If you are receiving a scholarship from the University or Faculty, you may be eligible to defer your tuition. Your total scholarship(s) must be equal to or exceed the minimum payment to register, which is noted on your fees invoice.

However, if the scholarship does not cover the entire minimum amount, you will have to pay difference by the deadline to pay or defer your fees.

Government Assistance from Other Provinces

If you are not from Ontario, but have been granted government assistance from another Canadian province, you may defer some or all of your minimum payment to register. If your loan does not cover the entire minimum amount, you will have to pay difference by the deadline to pay or defer your fees.

If you have received a Notice of Assessment, learn how to defer your fees on the basis of a loan from another Canadian province.
