Registration for Fall 2019 and Winter 2020 courses is set to commence on Monday, April 1st.

Beginning the Fall 2019 semester, all Ontario universities are implementing the new “Student Choice Initiative” introduced by the Provincial government that provides domestic students an “opt out” option for non-compulsory ancillary fees.  

Please note, the new “Student Choice Initiative” only applies to domestic students.  

This government initiative does not apply to international students.

Ancillary fees are defined as any fee imposed or administered by a given institution, in addition to regular tuition fees, which a student pays for a service or product.

At the point of registration, either online or in-person, domestic students will be given a full list of compulsory and non-compulsory ancillary fees, along with a description of each fee.  Domestic students have 24 hours from the point of registration in which to make a final decision to opt out of any non-compulsory fee. The opt-out function is available to domestic students through the Student Portal.  After this point, the student will be deemed as having opted-in.  Once a student has chosen to “opt-out”, they will not be able to use the services and/or supports provided through the associated fee.

If a domestic student has opted out of a non-compulsory fee they will not be able to opt back in for the current semester.  They may opt back in for future semesters as long as they do so prior to the posted fee payment deadline.
