A $150 deposit late fee will be charged after the due date listed on your Fee Statement (OSAP and non-OSAP students). Payments made after the due date do not guarantee a spot in the program. Please contact a Student Services Representative when paying past the tuition deposit due date to confirm space remains in the program.
