Fee Policies


Every effort is made to adhere to the details outlined on this website, although courses, fees, days, hours of instruction, and instructors are subject to change without prior notice.

Note: Fees charged by Ryerson are approved annually by the Board of Governors for an academic year. Ryerson reserves the right to make changes in both the fees and procedures without prior notice.

Students are academically and financially responsible for all enrolled courses and fees incurred unless they formally withdraw at my.ryerson.ca or in person at the ServiceHub (Podium, 1st floor, 350 Victoria Street) within the published deadline dates (whether or not they attend a class).


Some courses are subject to HST and where applicable it is included in the total fee. Course fees that contain HST have “Tax Included” noted beside the fee.

Outstanding Fees and Costs

As a student, you are personally responsible for paying the following:

  • library fines
  • fees for services rendered
  • costs incurred for damage to, or loss of, University property

Non-payment of fees/costs will result in the withholding of grades and transcripts, issuance of official University documentation, ineligibility for enrolment, and any other action deemed appropriate by the University. Ryerson cannot be held responsible for debts incurred by individual students or student organizations.

If you have any outstanding fees owed to Ryerson, any payment will first be applied to the existing balance. Enrolment for courses in the next term is not permitted if there is any outstanding fee balance.

Fee Appeal Policy

The Registrar’s Office is responsible for receiving tuition fees, ancillary fees and other related fees from students enrolled in degree programs, certificate programs, and individual courses. The Registrar’s Office, The G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education, and the Yeates School of Graduate Studies have established and published fee payment deadlines and course drop dates (some of which allow for partial refunds of fees). There are, however, many students who submit appeals for refunds beyond what is allowed for in our fee refund policies based on individual and unique circumstances. This policy has been developed to provide clear guidelines related to the review and decision making processes related to appeals requesting fee reversals and/or refunds. For complete and up-to-date information, review the Fee Appeal Policy.
