The fee billing period is for one-term with a fee invoice being issued to full-time students prior to the start of each term. The fee invoice will indicate the billing period, the deposit due date if applicable, the full tuition fees for the program and the balance of fees due date.

We encourage you to make your required deposit promptly to secure your spot in the program and to pay your balance of fees by the due date to avoid late fees.

Students must be prepared to make their deposit from their own resources. Financial assistance through the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) is intended to supplement a student's financial situation after registration. Students must meet all payment and academic requirements to be permitted to register in the current and subsequent term.

Methods of payment

Fees may be paid through:

  • all major financial institutions using online or telephone banking, 
  • at the Office of the Registrar (by Interac, by cheque or money order payable to Fanshawe College or by Visa or MasterCard), 
  • online by Visa or MasterCard using Fanshawe's WebAdvisor make a payment process at WebAdvisor. 
  • Postdated cheques are not accepted.

If you are being sponsored by an agency you need to present your student fees invoice to your agency and they can mail or fax a letter to the Office of the Registrar authorizing payment of your fees.

Part-time and overload fees are payable in one payment at the time of registration and prior to the commencement of each course(s) for which the student is enrolled. Registration and payments must be received prior to attending.

Late fee

Avoid the late fee of $150 by paying your tuition fees in full on or before the 10th day of classes each term.
Late fee - $150 one-time flat fee (applied on the 11th day of class with standard start dates)

Student withdrawal/refund of fees

Students are responsible for the payment of all fees for a program level unless written notification is received by the Office of the Registrar by one of the following deadline dates:

  • Withdrawal occurs up to the 10th day of classes.
    Students are responsible for payment of the $500.00 non-refundable deposit. Any portion of tuition fees paid over the $500.00 non-refundable amount will be eligible for a refund.
  • Withdrawal occurs after the 10th day of classes.
    Students are responsible for all fees for the current term, any previous balance, and late fees incurred.

If your plans have changed and you're not going to attend, written notification of withdrawal is still required and must be sent to the Office of the Registrar prior to the start of the term. Non-attendance will not constitute official withdrawal and you will be responsible for all fees for the term.

Students who register after the start date of their program are not eligible for extensions to these deadlines.


The College reserves the right to cancel programs or courses, a program major or option, to change the location and term in which program/courses are offered, or withdraw an offer of admission because of insufficient registrations or for other budgetary reasons. If you decide to not accept another available program, your $500.00 deposit will be refunded in full.
