A late payment fee is charged to returning students if fees are not paid in full by a payment due date. The late fee is $150 and is due on the first day of classes.
Once you register, you are academically and financially responsible for your program unless you officially withdraw by the posted deadline using the official "Intent to Withdraw Form". Certain minimum non-refundable fees may apply.
There will be a $12 charge levied for each official transcript you request from Enrolment Services. All students will receive one free official transcript upon graduation.
According to the guideline set by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities:
A full-time student is one who is enrolled in at least 70 per cent of the student contact hours (two-thirds of the courses required) for the approved program in a given semester.
Students enrolled in greater than 100 per cent of a given semester of an approved program will be charged for the additional courses taken.
International students must enrol as full-time students. In special circumstances, they may take a reduced course load and still be considered full-time students.
Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) Funding
If you have applied for OSAP funding and your estimated total of OSAP funding is equal to or greater than your tuition, you may pay a $250 deposit by the Deposit Due Date. Accept the terms of the OSAP Tuition Deposit Agreement, either online via myCentennial or complete the agreement in person at the Enrolment Services Office. If paying in person, you must present your OSAP estimate or approved documents. Your estimate must cover your full tuition for the semester(s) that you have applied for OSAP in order for you to use the $250 fee deposit option.
Are you on OSAP and having a difficult time paying your $250 tuition deposit? Please contact Student Financial Services and, in some circumstances, we can assist you by providing a tuition deposit waiver. Receiving a tuition deposit waiver delays payment of your $250 tuition deposit until your OSAP funding arrives. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The balance of your fees is due within 7 days of receiving your OSAP funding. Failure to pay the balance by the deadline will result in late fee charges. If you do not receive OSAP funds, you will be responsible to pay the balance of your fees.
What is the Fee Refund Policy if I decide to withdraw from my program?
If you have paid your fees, you must submit an Intent to Withdraw Form to the Enrolment Services Office within the first ten days from the start of the semester to qualify for a partial refund of fees.* The College will return all tuition paid less $250 for Canadian residents. For international students who withdraw because of visa denial, the college will return all tuition paid less a $250 administrative fee. Prior to September 2020 programs: international students who withdraw for any other reason will be subject to a $2,300 non-refundable tuition fee. Effective for September 2020 programs: international students who withdraw for any other reason will be subject to a $2,650 non-refundable tuition fee. For more information on the refund process and required documentation, visit the International Education How to Withdraw webpage.
