Overdue Accounts

 

Late Fees

Students are expected to register on or before the specified registration dates. Students wishing to register after these dates must receive approval from the Registrar. A late registration fee of $50.00 will apply if registration and payment of fees has not been completed by specified due dates. This fee is payable at time of payment and will be in addition to regular fees. The Waiver Request [PDF - 16 kB] form is available online.

Reinstatement fee

A student whose account is delinquent for more than 30 days will be denied certain University privileges such as access to transcripts. The student will be reinstated upon payment of the outstanding fees, arrears interest and a $50.00 reinstatement fee. The Waiver Request [PDF - 16 kB] form is available online.

Holds

Outstanding balance hold - more than $100.00

Outstanding balances over $100.00 will hold transcripts and the ability to register for a subsequent term

Outstanding balance hold - delinquent account

A hold is placed on all accounts that are one full academic year in arrears. This hold will prevent the release of transcripts, tuition tax receipts and future registration.

Delinquent Accounts

Graduating students whose accounts are delinquent on April 15 will not receive their degree/parchment at the May convocation. For October graduation, the deadline is September 1. Accounts which become seriously delinquent may be placed on collection or further legal action may be taken against the individual. Students will be responsible for charges incurred as a result of such action.

Interest

Effective July 1, 2016, the annual interest rate charged on all overdue accounts is 5.70%, interest is assessed weekly and is compounded monthly.

Service charge

If payment is by cheque and returned by the bank as non-negotiable, there will be an additional fee of $20.00 and the account will be considered unpaid. Furthermore, if the bank returns a cheque that was to cover payment of tuition, the student's registration may be cancelled and, if permitted to re-register, a late registration fee may apply.
