Registration Deadline:  April 30, 2018

After you enroll in courses on ACORN, it’s time to pay (or officially defer) your fees to complete your registration for the Summer session. 

The deadline to pay your fees and complete your registration in 2018 Summer is April 30, 2018.  Students who are not registered by April 30 will be removed from courses at any time.

View your fees invoice
During the Summer session, Arts & Science tuition fees are charged on a per-course basis. This means that fees are calculated based on the number of courses you are taking.  A schedule of fee amounts is found on the Office of Student Accounts web site.  To find out how much you have to pay, view your fees invoice on ACORN in mid-April (select "Financial Account" tab in main menu).

Pay your fees
Like most other bill payments, tuition fee payments are made through a bank. You may do so using online or telephone banking, at a bank machine, or in person at a bank teller. The quickest way to pay your fees is electronically - by online or telephone banking. Set up the payee information as follows:

  • Payee Name: University of Toronto
  • Account Number: As displayed on your fees invoice on ACORN.

Each student's account number consists of up to the first five characters of your surname in capital letters and the 10 numbers which is your student number with leading zeros (if applicable). Be sure to distinguish between the letter ‘O’ and the number '0' (zero). 

For full payment instructions, see the Office of Student Accounts web site

Keep in mind that regardless of how you make the payment, it will take 3-5 business days for it to be processed by the bank and recorded by the University. This means that your account balance on ACORN will not change immediately after you make the payment. Just hold on to your payment receipt or confirmation number and check your balance on ACORN again a few days after you pay. 

Receiving OSAP or provincial government loans for the Summer?
If you have no outstanding fees from previous sessions and you are expecting to receive OSAP or other provincial government loans for the Summer, you may request to defer your fee payment on ACORN. Deferring your fees means that you don’t have to pay by April 30 to complete your registration – the payment is deferred until you receive your loan funding. It’s best to apply for OSAP by March 31 so that you can be assessed for funding prior to the start of classes. As soon as you receive your loan funds in your bank account, follow the instructions above to pay your tuition fees. For information on applying for summer OSAP see the Enrolment Services web site:

How do I know my registration is complete?
After you pay your fees at the bank or officially defer your fees on ACORN you can check to see if your registration is complete. Remember that it normally takes a few days for payments to be received and recorded by the University. 

Check your registration status for 2018 Summer on the Dashboard/Home page of ACORN. If your status is:

  • Registered (REG):  It means your registration is COMPLETE and you’re ready to go to class. 
  • Invited (INVIT):  It means your registration is NOT COMPLETE. If you’ve already made a payment by April 30, don’t worry, just check your registration status again in a few days. If you haven’t made a payment or deferred your fees by April 30, you risk being removed from all your courses. To complete your registration, pay your fees immediately and present proof of payment to your College Registrar’s office. Contact your College for more information.
  • Financially Cancelled (FINCA):  It means that you are not enrolled in courses and are not registered for the Session. If you wish to enroll in courses for the Summer, contact your College Registrar’s office for instructions

Financial Aid
For most full-time, undergraduate students at Woodsworth College, the first avenue of financial assistance is through the federal and provincial (ie OSAP) loan program.  Eligible students must maintain a course load of at least 60% in each term to qualify for federal/provincial funding.

Woodsworth College Bursaries and Grants
The College has an extensive bursary and grant program.  Students are encouraged to apply when applications become available October 1 for the Fall/Winter Session and the first day of classes in the summer session.  Most students applying for a bursary will have already applied for other funding. However, students are encouraged to meet with the College’s financial advisor to discuss their individual circumstances.

Visit this link to see how much you could get in grants and loans.  Part-time students can also apply for the Noah Meltz Grant, a grant offered though the University of Toronto to assist part-time degree students with their educational costs.  The application for the Noah Meltz grant can be found on the Admissions and Awards website.

There are many ways to tap into additional financial resources while studying at Woodsworth College. Do not hesitate to make an appointment to see the Awards Officer. Contact Yvonne Hilder to discuss your financial plan.

OSAP Repayment
If you have been financing your education with Canada or Ontario student loans (OSAP) you should consider a repayment plan. Your first payment is due in the seventh month after you cease to be a full-time student. This is your “Consolidation Date”. While you are a full-time student (i.e., 60% course load or greater), the Federal and Provincial governments pay the interest on your student loans. You are responsible for arranging repayment with your lender(s) before your six-month period expires by signing a Consolidation Agreement/Loan Repayment form. This will specify your monthly payments, the term and the interest rate. For detailed information go to this site.
