Financial holds

  • Financial holds - grad students

    In accordance with our policies and important dates, graduate students are responsible for ensuring their fees are paid in full or have submitted an approved payroll deduction by the posted deadline. Once this deadline has passed, late charges and holds will be applied to all unpaid accounts.

    Students with a hold are unable to attend classes, access course material, use the university facilities or receive payment from sources (including TAs, RAs and GRAs and/or other scholarships/awards) and are unable to register for future terms. Students who are unable to register will be considered inactive until the hold has been cleared and the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies has been notified.

    If you become eligible to register before three consecutive terms have elapsed, you may apply to be reinstated into the program. If you are not eligible to register by the end of the third elapsed term, you will be considered withdrawn and must formally reapply to continue in your program. Reinstatement and readmission is not guaranteed and fees may apply.

    For more information on inactivation and other registration issues, please contact gradadmissions@uoit.ca

    • Students registered in courses other than the respective thesis or project course may not qualify for a tuition refund.
