Academic fees for full-time doctoral students in the final year of their program, and who are before their maximum time limit, are pro-rated based on the 12-month academic year plus sessional incidentals. Academic fees for doctoral students in the final extension year, and who are beyond their maximum time limit, are prorated based on 50% of the annual domestic fee for the 12-month academic year plus sessional incidentals.
Doctoral students will be billed for the whole year but may choose to pay:
1. The full fee;
2. The minimum first payment (50% of the full fee);
3. The fee based on the expected date of completion
If you choose to pay less than the full-year fee, a monthly service charge (starting October 15) will be applied to any outstanding balance. If you have made a fee arrangement that exempts you from paying service fees until the end of April, the arrangement may not be applicable if you submit your thesis prior to the end of April.
When a final corrected thesis is submitted, fees and service charges are adjusted accordingly. For more information, please review the monthly academic and incidental fees schedule at the Student Accounts website. The pro-rated fee applies to students who have been continuously registered in their program, or who have obtained an authorized leave of absence. Please note that international students may be entitled to a partial refund of their UHIP fee; these students are advised to contact the Centre for International Experience for more information.
Academic fees for the final extension year are prorated, based on 50% of the annual domestic fee for the 12-month academic year plus sessional incidentals.
The final date to submit doctoral theses without payment for the Fall 2023 session is September 15, 2023 and January 15, 2024 to avoid fee charges for the Winter 2024 session. Further information about final-year fees for doctoral students is available under Graduate Fees.
Your Fall 2023 session registration and fees are cancelled if your degree recommendation and final master’s thesis (if required) are submitted to SGS by September 29, 2023. If you are not recommended by September 29, 2023 you will be required to register and pay fees for the Fall session.
You do not register or pay fees for the Winter 2024 session if your degree recommendation and final master’s thesis (if required) are submitted to SGS by January 19, 2024. If you are not recommended by January 19, 2024 you will be required to pay fees for the Winter session.
