Faculty administrative fees
- Late payment fees: $50 per invoice, plus interest
- NSF (returned) cheques: $40
It may be possible to receive a full refund (less $50 administrative fee). See the important dates section for deadlines.
When you cancel your registration (withdraw), the $50 administrative fee is deducted from the amount reimbursed or credited, (no administrative fee applies if course is cancelled by the Faculty).
If you request a refund rather than have the amount credited towards registration in a future term, $25 administrative fee per course is deducted from the refund. Administrative fees do not apply if you have the amount credited towards registration in a future term. Note, however, that you can transfer registration fees to a future term only once.
All refunds are made by cheque. Please allow three to four weeks for the refund to be issued.

Tuition fee exemption
The basic and additional qualification programs are self-funded and do not receive any government funding. As a result, any tuition fee exemptions typically granted by the University do not apply to AQ or ABQ courses.
If you have any amounts owing to the University of Ottawa, a recommendation will not be made to the Ontario College of Teachers. This means that, no new qualifications will appear on your Certificate of Qualification and Registration. In addition, you will be unable to register for any other courses or programs at the University of Ottawa until your account has been paid in full. This applies equally to any unpaid fines due to other University services, such the Library, Parking Office and, Sports Services.
NOTE: Until such time as all amounts are paid, you will not qualify to attend convocation nor receive any transcripts, letters of attestation, certificates, diplomas or other official documents from the University. These debts are NOT discharged through bankruptcy.
