Pay With a Tuition Waiver for Staff and Dependants of Staff
- Tuition waiver credits will cover a portion of or all of current session program and course fees.
- Tuition waiver credits do not cover incidental, ancillary, residence, or other fees.
- You are responsible for paying for fees not covered by a tuition waiver.
You are eligible for a tuition waiver for the current session if all of the following conditions apply:
- you have paid for prior session fees,
- you have an approved tuition waiver application signed by Human Resources
- you submit a copy of your ACORN invoice and approved tuition waiver application to the Student Accounts Office prior to your division’s Fall-Winter session Pay or Defer to Register deadline or Summer session Pay or Defer to Register deadline.
Step 1: Print your ACORN invoice starting in Mid-July (Fall-Winter) and Mid-April( Summer).
The minimum required payment to register for:
- Fall-Winter session is the Fall term incidental and ancillary fee total.
- Summer session is 50% of Summer session incidental and ancillary fee total.
When the incidental and ancillary fee payment has been recorded in your ACORN account, the registration status will change from “Invited to Register” to “Registered”.
Plan sufficient time for your bank to transfer the funds to the University’s bank account by the Minimum Payment to Register deadline, otherwise you may have to show proof of payment in person at the Registrar’s Office or SGS Student Services Office to complete your registration and you may be charged a late registration fee.
The transfer of funds from major Canadian financial institutions normally takes three to five business days, however the transfer from Canadian credit unions and financial institutions from outside Canada can take much longer.
There are different forms for staff and dependants of staff.
Step 4: Submit a copy of your ACORN invoice and signed tuition waiver application to the Student Accounts Office before your division’s Fall-Winter session Pay or Defer to Register deadline or Summer session Pay or Defer to Register deadline.
The student or HR staff can email a copy of the signed tuition waiver form along with your ACORN invoice to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 416-978-2610.
Step 5: Within 10 business days of receiving the signed tuition waiver form, Student Accounts staff will contact you or the Human Resources representative if there are any questions, or will record the tuition waiver financial arrangement on your ACORN account.
Tuition waiver financial arrangement will NOT be recorded on ACORN, if there are unpaid prior session fees or you are not registered for the current session.
You can confirm that the financial arrangement has been recorded when the Financial Arrangement status changes to “Waiver for tuition fees” on the ACORN dashboard.
Step 6: Student Accounts will record the tuition waiver credit(s) on your ACORN invoice after most of the course changes have taken place (late September for Fall term, late January for Winter term, late May for Summer session), and adjust periodically if course enrolment changes.
Step 7: Pay any fees that the tuition waiver credits will not cover by April 30th (for Fall-Winter session) and August 31st (for Summer session).
