Making Payments by Tuition Waivers for Staff and
Dependants of Staff
A tuition waiver of academic
fees is available for University of Toronto administrative staff members,
dependants of administrative staff and dependants of faculty members &
librarians who previously had a waiver and chose to continue with the waiver,
or who are part-time students. For terms of reference, eligibility and provisions,
see the collective agreement or
policy document for your employment group.
Tuition waiver forms and instructions for applying for a tuition waiver for
staff and dependants of staff are available on the HR website [http://www.hrandequity.utoronto.ca/forms.htm].
The most common processing delay results from using the wrong form so
applicants should note that there are different forms for staff and dependants
If you are eligible for a
University of Toronto tuition waiver and plan to register at the University of
Toronto for the summer session, follow these steps to complete your
registration by the Minimum Payment to Register deadline:
1. Pay the Summer Session incidental fees, ancillary fees, and the Student
System Access Fee and any unpaid fees from past sessions, at your bank by the Minimum
Payment to Register deadline.
Plan sufficient time for your
bank to transfer the funds to the University by the Minimum Payment to Register
deadline, otherwise you may have to show proof of payment in person at the
Registrar’s Office or SGS Student Services Office to complete your registration
and you may be charged a late registration fee.
The transfer of funds from major
Canadian financial institutions normally takes three to five business days,
however the transfer from Canadian credit unions and financial institutions
from outside Canada can take much longer.
2. The recording of the payment
in your student account will change your status from “INVIT”(invited to
register) to “REG”(registered). You need to confirm that the status has changed
on ACORN/ROSI and report any problems to your undergraduate registration office
or graduate unit.
3. Take the Tuition Waiver Request Form and a copy of your ACORN/ROSI invoice
to your Human Resources Office for authorization.
4. Submit your ACORN/ROSI invoice and Staff/Dependant Tuition Waiver Request
form, approved by Human Resources, to Student Accounts by mail or in person.
Within 10 business days of
receiving the tuition waiver form, Student Accounts staff will contact you or
the student or the Human Resources representative if there are any questions, or
will record the tuition waiver financial arrangement on the student’s ROSI
The student can confirm that the
financial arrangement has been recorded when the Financial Arrangement status
changes to “Waiver for tuition fees” on the ACORN/ROSI mainpage.
5. The tuition waiver credit(s) will
be recorded on the student’s ACORN/ROSI invoice later in the session, after
most of the course changes have taken place and adjusted periodically if course
6. If you registered by paying
the incidental fees, ancillary fees, and the Student System Access Fee for the
current session and unpaid fees from past sessions, then pay your current
session outstanding fees by the following due dates:
i) You must pay the outstanding account balance by August 31st to avoid monthly
service charges at a rate of 1.5% compounded (19.56% per annum) which will be
applied against the outstanding account balance beginning as of September
15th and as of the 15th of every month thereafter until the account is
paid in full. U of T Scarborough students must pay the outstanding
account balance by August 14th.
ii) If you do not make full payment of summer session fees by September 15th,
you will NOT be eligible to register for the Fall-Winter session.
