Registration & Tuition Fees

At the beginning of each academic year, students must register and pay their tuition + other fees or defer fees until April 30. Registration must be completed before you attend classes or make use of university facilities.

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.

Student Accounts will no longer be mailing paper invoices to students. Login into ACORN to register, pay tuition or defer payment.  Students who are in the funded cohort (MSc: first year; PhD with a MSc: 1-4 years; PhD transferred from MSc (direct entry): 1-5 years) may request registration without payment (by deferring their fees until April 30) online. Students who are out of the funded cohort should contact the EEB Grad Office for the deferral form to complete.

Fee schedules:

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

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.
