Students are academically and financially responsible for all enrolled courses and fees incurred unless they formally withdraw within the published deadline dates (whether or not they attend a class). Courses can be officially dropped via MyServiceHub at my.torontomu.ca. (Visit Withdrawals for more details.)

Note: Fees charged by Toronto Metropolitan are approved annually by the Board of Governors for the academic year. Toronto Metropolitan reserves the right to make changes in both the fees and the procedures without prior notice.

Course Fees

On individual course pages, the fee is noted for each available section. Fees are quoted in Canadian funds and fall into the following categories:

  • Domestic Ontario fee rate
  • Domestic Out-of-Province fee rate
  • International fee rate

You must pay your full fees at the time you enrol. Visit How to Enrol In a Course for detailed information about the enrolment process.

For fee payment procedures, refer to Payment of Fees on this page. For related information, refer to Fee Policies on this page and/or visit Non-Tuition Related Fees and Services Charges and Refunds. Part-time degree students should refer to the Undergraduate Calendar.

Can I get financial assistance to help pay my fees?

Awards and Financial Assistance lists all need-based financial aid (including government assistance) and merit-based awards available to continuing education students, along with eligibility criteria, how to apply, application deadlines, and more.

What are international student fees?

International Students explains how to calculate the International fee rate for courses. It also provides additional details about services and information for international students.

International Students: Toronto Metropolitan University is currently unable to offer financial assistance to international continuing education students. All international students are encouraged to explore home government or private sources of funding prior to arriving in Canada.

Full-Time Students: Toronto Metropolitan Undergraduate full-time program students who enrol in continuing education courses through The Chang School will be charged the applicable Chang School course fee(s).

Part-Time Students: Toronto Metropolitan Undergraduate part-time program students who enrol in continuing education courses through The Chang School will be charged undergraduate fees for all of their enrolments; they are not charged the published Chang School course fee(s).

Fee Changes

Every effort is made to adhere to the details outlined on this website, although courses, fees, days, hours of instruction, and instructors are subject to change without prior notice.

Students are academically and financially responsible for all enrolled courses and fees incurred unless they formally withdraw within the published deadline dates (whether or not they attend a class). Courses can be officially dropped via MyServiceHub at my.toronotmu.ca.

HST

Some courses are subject to HST and where applicable it is included in the total fee.

Outstanding Fees and Costs

As a student, you are personally responsible for paying the following:

  • Library fines
  • Fees for services rendered
  • Costs incurred for damage to, or loss of, University property

Non-payment of fees/costs will result in the withholding of grades and transcripts, issuance of official University documentation, ineligibility for enrolment, and any other action deemed appropriate by the University. Toronto Metropolitan cannot be held responsible for debts incurred by individual students or student organizations.

If you have any outstanding fees owed to Toronto Metropolitan, any payment will first be applied to the existing balance. Enrolment for courses in the next term is not permitted if there is any outstanding fee balance.

Fee Appeal Policy

The Registrar’s Office is responsible for receiving tuition fees, ancillary fees, and other related fees from students enrolled in degree programs, certificate programs, and individual courses. The Registrar’s Office, The G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education, and the Yeates School of Graduate Studies have established and published fee payment deadlines and course drop dates (some of which allow for partial refunds of fees). There are, however, many students who submit appeals for refunds beyond what is allowed for in our fee refund policies based on individual and unique circumstances. This policy has been developed to provide clear guidelines related to the review and decision-making processes related to appeals requesting fee reversals and/or refunds. For complete and up-to-date information, review the Fee Appeal Process.

Fee Rates

There are three academic fee rates: Domestic Ontario, Domestic Out-of-Province, and International.

Domestic Fee Rate

This fee rate is for students who are Canadian citizens or Permanent Residents, or specifically exempted by government regulation from the International fee rate, and are residents of Ontario.

Domestic Out-of-Province Fee Rate

This fee rate is for students who are Canadian citizens or Permanent Residents, or specifically exempted by government regulation from the International fee rate, and are residents of a province or territory other than Ontario.

International Fee Rate

This fee rate is for students who do not fall within the Domestic fee rates, or who cannot provide documentation confirming eligibility for International fee exemption. The International fee rate for continuing education students is three and a half (3.5) times the regular student tuition fee for credit courses. The International fee rate applies to degree credit courses only. (For further information on the calculation of the International fee rate, refer to International Students.)

Fee Rate Change Requests and Deadlines

If you meet the eligibility requirements for another fee rate, you can apply to have your fee rate changed. Visit "Fee Rate Changes" on TMU's Fees Categories page for submission instructions, deadlines, and the supporting documentation required to make a rate change.

If your status changes, you must submit official documentation by the published deadline to have your fees revised for the current term. If you miss the deadline, the change will apply to the following term. It is not possible, under any circumstance, to retroactively change your fee rate once a deadline has passed.

Fee Rate Eligibility

Visit "Fee Rate Eligibility" on TMU's Fees Categories page for information on the criteria for each fee rate, as well as eligibility exceptions.

Payment of Fees

All fees must be paid in full at the time of enrolment. Any students with outstanding fees will be required to clear their remaining balance before any further enrolments are processed.

Toronto Metropolitan University full-time undergraduate program students who enrol in courses through The Chang School should be aware that Chang School course fees are due at the time of enrolment. If full payment is not received at the time of enrolment, you will begin to incur late fee service charges at the start of the following month. Toronto Metropolitan University part-time undergraduate students are not charged Chang School fees and should consult with their department and/or the ServiceHub.

Fees are payable to Toronto Metropolitan University by money order, certified cheque, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or debit card. Duplicate payment receipts for employee reimbursement are available online by selecting the “Fees & Enrolment Confirmation” link in MyServiceHub at my.torontomu.ca.

Postdated cheques are not accepted. If your payment is subsequently not honoured by the financial institution, you will be charged a $50 fee by the ServiceHub. Payment for outstanding fees plus the $50 must be made by certified cheque or money order, payable to Toronto Metropolitan University.

Income tax receipts totalling more than $100 per enrolment are deductible personal income tax credits.

Late Fee Service Charges

There is a late fee service charge of 1.25% per month (16.08% effective annual rate) assessed on any unpaid balance in a student’s account.
