  6. Learn about important dates and deadlines

1. Check your name

Ensure that the name in the offer of admission and on the application form is your legal name (it MUST be identical to the name in your passport).

3. Register for courses

Once you have replied “yes” to your offer of admission, you can register by contacting the academic assistant of your faculty. Remember that early registration offers you more flexibility in your course selection!

You can find out more about the suggested order of courses for your program on your faculty website.

5. Pay your tuition and other mandatory fees

Please note that your tuition fees will appear on your account only once you have registered in your chosen courses, and that you have several payment options. Tuition and other mandatory fees indicated in the information that accompanies your offer of admission are for full-time undergraduate studies. The Board of Governors reserves the right to change tuition fees and ancillary fees without notice.

The most efficient method of payment from outside Canada is a bank transfer. Take into consideration the fact that financial institutions require at least 10 days to process international transfers in order to respect the payment dates.


Note: International students who do not pay their tuition and UHIP (University Health Insurance Plan) fees will be asked to withdraw from the program.

6. Learn about important dates and deadlines

Payment deadline dates

Make sure you pay attention to the payment deadline dates. A fee of at least $35 CDN will be charged if tuition fees are paid late, to a maximum of $100 CDN if registration is completed after the deadline. (The University reserves the right to raise these fees without notice.)
