    all of the academic and non-academic policies,
    rules and regulations of the University and his
    or her academic division as set out in the
    divisional calendar

    web (Rosi)
  • Fees made up of academic, incidental and
    ancillary fees, all of which are mandatory
  • Fees assessed by session and F/P time status, not
    number of courses

45
Payment of Tuition Fee

  • Check Rosi to determine the amount
  • Pay at the bank
  • Minimum payment (normally 60 of the full fee)
    required for registration
  • Monthly service charge of 1.5 on all outstanding
    fees starting on November 15.

46
Balance of Degree Fees
  • The length of the program, as defined by the
    graduate unit into which a student is admitted,
    predetermines the minimum total academic fee that
    a student must pay prior to graduation.  Many
    part-time Masters students must pay a balance of
    degree fee prior to graduation. Full-time
    students who accelerate their programs and finish
    the degree requirements in less time than the
    normal program length must pay a balance of
    degree fee.  If a student has paid more than the
    full-time fee due to the time taken to complete
    the degree requirements, there will be no refund
    of fees.

47
Balance of Degree Fees (contd)
  • Determined at the end of the program by SGS

    paying for the tuition fee
