Fee Payment & Service Charge Billing Deadlines

View your ACORN invoice starting in mid-July for the Fall-Winter session and mid-April for the Summer session. ACORN tuition fee billing marks the beginning of the registration period for each session.

Complete your registration for each session by making a payment or obtaining a tuition deferral (register without payment) by your division’s Pay or Defer to Register deadline to avoid course enrolment and registration cancellation.

If you obtained a tuition deferral (register without payment) or paid the Minimum Required payment amount displayed on your ACORN invoice or fees have changed since the registration period, pay outstanding fees by the Fall term, Winter term or Summer session deadlines. Otherwise, monthly service charge fees will be billed on your ACORN invoice on the 15th of every month at a monthly rate of 1.5% compounded (19.56% per annum)  until paid in full.

Pay or Defer to Register Deadlines for Each Session

Before each session, your sessional registration status is initially set as “Invited to Register”.

  • Fall-Winter session fee billing (September to April) will start on July 20, 2020.
  • Summer session fee billing (May to August) will start on April 12, 2021.

You can enroll in courses but your registration status has to be changed to “Registered” by your division’s Pay or Defer to Register deadline.  Otherwise your sessional registration will be “Financially Cancelled”, and your course enrolment will be cancelled. You need to pay or defer to register for each session.

  • Fee Payment Guidelines

    1. The amount owed is the ACORN Account Balance Up to the end of the Session displayed at the top right-hand corner of your current session (Fall-Winter session) invoice.  If you have paid an academic or residence deposit for the upcoming Summer session, the deposit payment is displayed as an unapplied credit to the upcoming session and is not applied to unpaid Fall-Winter session fees.
    2. The University considers you to be responsible for all aspects of your registration including fee payment.  If someone else is handling fee payment, it is your responsibility to advise that person of all rules and requirements.
    3. Paper invoices are not routinely mailed.  You are expected to monitor your account on ACORN at www.acorn.utoronto.ca.  Non-receipt of an invoice does not exempt you from meeting your financial obligations.
    4. If you were deferred (registered without payment) on the basis of funding, you are responsible for paying for tuition & non-tuition fees not covered by your funding.
    5. You are responsible for planning sufficient time for payments to reach the University’s bank account and to be recorded in your ACORN account by the payment and service charge deadlines.
    6. Monthly service charge of 1.5% compounded (19.56% per annum) will be billed(recorded) on your ACORN invoice on the 15th of every month until paid in full.  Fee payments must be made by the end of the previous month to allow 5-10 business days for recording the fee payment in ACORN account by the monthly service charge billing date.
    7. On the current session invoice, Unpaid Fall Term Fee amount (>$0) = ROSI Account Balance Up to the End of the Session minus Winter Term TUITION Sub-Total amounts minus Winter Term NON-TUITION Sub-Total amounts.
    8. An ACORN financial hold will be automatically recorded on your account if full payment for the Fall-Winter session fees has not been recorded in the account by April 30th.  This will block transcript requests, and registration for the next session will be refused.
    9. Fall and Winter term fees are billed at the same time, however you have the option to pay Fall and Winter fees separately.  The Fall term balance is not displayed on the ACORN invoice
