Understanding Your $500 Tuition Deposit

Congratulations on accepting your offer of admission to a northern Ontario college! The next steps in the process is to pay your $500 tuition deposit.

What is the $500 Tuition Deposit

It was created to make paying college tuition easier and more affordable for students. Although you have already accepted an offer through OCAS, you still are required to make this payment as well. 

The $500 tuition deposit also lets your college know that you’re committed to attending your program in the Fall, and so that they can also start preparing on their end (ie. hiring the right professor, ordering textbooks, booking classes)

Some Important things to note:

– If you miss the deadline you will be required to pay a $150 late fee
– You risk losing your seat in your program if you do not pay on time
– The deposit is non-refundable

How to Pay Your Tuition Deposit

The easiest and fastest way to pay your deposit is through your school’s online portal.  In most cases, you will be required to sign in with your username and password which are found on your offer of admission letter.

Another easy way to pay is in person at Student Services. If you have plans to visit Northern Ontario in the summer, why not stop by your school, take a tour and pay your tuition deposit so you have nothing to worry about! One recommendation would be to call in advance to find out your school’s operating hours and methods of payment they accept.
