Important Information

1.      For complete information about fees, refer to the information on this website and your account on ACORN/ROSI.  These two documents should be considered the more accurate if there is any discrepancy with fees listed in calendars or brochures.  All fees are subject to change at any time by approval of the Governing Council.  If fee changes are approved we will bill or refund according to standard procedures.  Lack of notification does not exempt a student from paying any additional fee.

2.      Students have full access to all details of their own account.  A minimum of account information will be released to other individuals if it can be determined that the student's consent has been obtained.  Where discussion of account matters overlaps with discussion of academic records, Student Accounts adheres to the University's Guidelines Concerning Access to Official Student Academic Records.

3.      On this website, any reference to Registrar (Registrar's Office) also applies to an equivalent official (or office) with a different title, e.g. Director of Student Services, Assistant Dean (Student Services, Registrarial Services).

4.      A student is considered to be registered as soon as he or she has paid tuition and incidental fees, or has made appropriate arrangements for deferral of payment.  By virtue of being registered, a student thereby agrees to abide by all of the academic and non-academic policies, rules and regulations of the University and his or her academic division as set out in the divisional calendar, and to ensure that the accuracy of personal information such as the current mailing address and telephone number is maintained.

Invoices are no longer mailed to students for registration purposes.  You are expected to read the information on this website and view your account on  ACORN. Your account can be viewed in two different ways. Invoice format groups the charges assessed and any payments or credits.  Your account number is displayed on the top right-hand corner.  It consists of the first five characters of your surname (in capital letters) and 10 numbers which is your student number with leading zeroes unless it begins with 1. Make sure you distinguish between the letter 'O' and the number 'zero'. See 'Making Payments'. Detailed transactions is very detailed.  It lists all transactions posted to your account in chronological order.

You can print a copy of your account in invoice format to take to the bank if making payment at a teller.

Your account will list all programs of study in which you have an 'invited' status and for which you have been assessed fees.  If you do not intend to register in all the programs listed on your invoice you must cancel the 'invited' status for the unwanted program(s) IMMEDIATELY BEFORE MAKING PAYMENT. To cancel an 'invited' status in a program, use ACORN (choose Financial Accounts from the menu option, then select Cancel Program of Study) and follow the instructions or call the registrar's office of the division that offers the program you wish to cancel.  When the 'invited' registration is cancelled, the tuition charges will be reversed on your account.  Check on ACORN/ROSI for the revised balance in your account.

Your account balance reflects all charges, payments & deposits. Deposits made for future sessions are not applied to current outstanding charges. In order to clear your current session outstanding balance, after payment your account balance should reflect the full credit amount of your deposit. The deposit credit balance will be applied to the charges in the session for which the deposit was intended e.g. residence.

If you need a paper invoice, you can pick one up at Student Accounts or ask us to mail one to you.  Some Registrar's and Residence Offices can also print invoices; check with these offices.
