Award refund cheques with international addresses are held at Enrolment Services Student Accounts
To view the details of your award (including the award name, amount and payment method), login to ACORN and click My Awards.
The Student Accounts Office will hold award refund cheques issued with international mailing address for a period of up to six months after the Award Refund date displayed on your ACORN invoice.
Banks will not cash a cheque after six months from the date on the cheque (if cheque date is September 25, 2021 your bank will not cash the cheque after March 24, 2022).
Update your mailing address or direct deposit information on ACORN:
- Update your direct deposit information (fastest and most secure way to receive your funds): watch this video or read the instructions here (under “Finances” click on “Direct Deposit”)
- Update your address to provide a Canadian mailing address: visit https://help.acorn.utoronto.ca/how-to/for details on how to update your address
After ACORN has been updated, contact the Student Accounts team through the Enrolment Services Service Portal http://uoft.me/enrolment-services, to arrange for the delivery of your award funds. Once you have logged into the UofT Service Portal, select the “Get Help” button and complete the form to request your refund.
Indicate on the form which of the following applies to you:
- I’ve updated my direct deposit information. Your funds will be sent via electronic bank transfer. This is a two step process, and processing times vary. Student Accounts will re-deposit your refund cheque into your ACORN account. Then a direct deposit refund will be processed.
- I’ve updated my mailing address, please mail the cheque to the Canadian mailing address available in ACORN.
- Apply the award funds to my ACORN student account as payment towards my tuition.
If you require additional assistance or would like to speak to someone to make alternative arrangements, please contact the Student Accounts team through the Enrolment Services Service Portal http://uoft.me/enrolment-services.
