Faculty administrative fees
- Late payment fees: $60 per invoice, plus interest
- NSF (returned) cheques: $40
See the important dates section for deadlines.
If you request a refund rather than have the amount credited toward registration in a future term, a $25 processing fee per course is deducted from the refund. This fee does not apply if you have the amount credited toward 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 cheque to be issued.
Statement of account, late payment of tuition fees
Your statement of account is available in electronic format only. These documents are not sent by mail. Once you’ve registered, an email will be sent to your uOttawa e-mail account and to any personal email addresses you provided. You can access your e-bill and statement of account online at any time, in uoZone, under "My Finances."
Please consult your statement of account as soon as possible an pay your fees by the due date.
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.
