Other Fee Payment Options

You may pay tuition and other fees from a Canadian or U.S. educational savings plan.

  • If you require a Confirmation of Enrolment/Registration letter or form, contact your registrar’s office to request.  A small administrative fee may be charged.  You should plan sufficient time to arrange to pay your fees by the payment deadlines for each session.

    If your RESP plan will pay you so that you can pay for your University of Toronto fees, you are responsible for paying your fees before the payment deadlines.

    If your RESP plan will pay the University of Toronto directly for your fees, the cheque payable to the ‘University of Toronto’ should be attached to your ACORN invoice and sent by mail to:

    Student Accounts

    All payments must be accompanied by the student’s name, student number and (if possible) the student’s program of study, or ACORN invoice, so that we can record it in your ACORN account.
