Registration & fees

Students must register and pay fees at the beginning of each academic year. Registration must be completed before you attend classes or otherwise make use of university facilities.

The deadline for registration is September 18, 2015. If you register after the final date to register, you will be required to show proof of payment and register at SGS. A late registration fee of $44 plus $5 per additional day to a maximum of $94 will be charged.

Student Accounts has revised the registration invoice process and they will no longer be mailing paper invoices to students. You can view instructions on the Student Accounts website, view your account on the Student Web Service and then make payment. Students who are in the EEB funded cohort (MSc: 16 months; PhD: 1-4 years; direct entry or PhD transferred from MSc: 1-5 years) may request to register without payment online (

Fee schedules are available at Under certain circumstances, payment of fees may be deferred - you should check with the EEB Graduate Administrator for more information (

Graduate students may apply for affiliation with one of the U of T Mississauga or U of T Scarborough campuses if they meet specific criteria. UTM/UTSC campus students are eligible for reduced non-academic incidental fees.

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. For a table of monthly charges, refer to

PhD students who submit their final thesis with all corrections and modifications by September 15, 2015 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. Students finishing between September 16, 2015 and January 14, 2016 will pay a one-session incidental fee and those finishing between January 15, 2016 and August 31, 2016 will pay a two-session incidental fee.

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 one session reinstatement fee. Students who are reinstated before the time for degree completion has expired are responsible for fees for sessions they have not registered in but were required to do so.
