Make a Deposit Payment

Deposit payments may be required for newly admitted students who have accepted an admission offer in an academic program and/or students who have accepted a residence offer.

  • If you have received an offer of admissions requiring the payment of a non-refundable deposit by a specified deadline to a place in the program, make your payment on ACORN MasterCard or VISA credit card payment service:

    Log into the Student Information System (ACORN) at acorn.utoronto.ca using your Join ID credentials to make the payment.

    • This payment option includes a convenience fee, which is a fee billed by Moneris (credit card service provider), and is NON-REFUNDABLE, even if you decide NOT to study at the University of Toronto.
    • The convenience fee, charged at a rate of 1.75% of the fee payment, is billed directly by Moneris, and is not remitted to the University of Toronto.
    • For a payment option that does not include the convenience fee, see option 2).

    Option 2: Bank Draft or Money Order in Canadian funds

    If sending a bank draft or money order, please include a copy of your Confirmation/Deposit form so that the payment will be recorded in your ACORN account.

    It is your responsibility to ensure that the deposit payment has been recorded in your ACORN account by the deadline set by your program Admissions Office.  It can take 2-3 business days upon receipt of the payment to record the deposit payment in your ACORN account.  After your payment has been processed, you will be able to see that your payment has been received in ACORN.

    The admissions deposit payment will be applied to the tuition fees on your ACORN invoice.
