When do I pay fees?

*This post contains information from the 2018-2019 academic year. Dates for 2019-2020 are not yet available, but the information is relevant if you are curious about how to pay your fees.*


Fall fees are due very soon! Here’s a breakdown of an invoice so you know what to pay and when to pay it!

Before we jump into the invoice, please take note of the following:

  1. If you have an outstanding balance from a previous session, these instructions may not apply to you. You should pay off your outstanding balance as soon as possible to avoid interest charges. Otherwise, you may come across issues with course enrolment if you do not pay off an outstanding balance from a previous session.
  2. This sample invoice is of a domestic, Innis College affiliated student in a regulated fee program. If you are an international student and/or in a de-regulated program (Computer Science, Rotman Commerce), your invoice will look different. If you are living in residence, you should double check with your residence office for residence fee deadlines.


  • When looking at your invoice, you should first look at the minimum payment required for registration. This can be found at the bottom of your invoice: for example, the minimum payment for the sample invoice below is $4043.71.

If you do not see a minimum payment at the bottom of your invoice, calculate your total Fall Term (Fall tuition fees+Fall non-tuition fees+system access fees) and make a payment of that amount. The minimum payment must be paid by August 29th, 2018.


What happens if you don’t make the minimum payment by August 29th?

Your registration will be cancelled and you will be removed from courses.


  • By September 29th, you will need to pay the rest of your Fall Term fees. To calculate this, simply take the Account Balance and subtract the Winter Term fees (both Winter non-tuition and Winter tuition fees). In this example:

$8302.42 – $3295 – $693.71= $4043.71, but your invoice could show a different number.


What happens if you don’t pay by September 29th?

If you don’t pay the remainder of your Fall Term fees, you will start to accumulate service charges (interest) starting on October 15th at a rate of 1.5% a month.


When are Winter Fees due?

The rest of your fees (Winter Term) will be due on November 30th.


What happens if I’ve applied for OSAP but haven’t received the funds?

If you are unable to pay your fees and are applying for OSAP, please contact your registrar’s office to defer your payments.


I made a payment but I don’t see it reflected on my invoice. What do I do?

Payments usually take a few business days to process so if you have made a payment and don’t see it on your invoice, it’s fine. However, if you are paying really close to the deadline and are worried it might not be processed by the deadline, you can show proof of payment to your Registrar’s Office to make sure you don’t get removed from your courses. This can be in the form of a bank statement screenshot or a receipt.
