When will I be advised of my fee information?

You will receive your fee information and invoice by the middle of May. Your invoice will include a request for you to make a $500 deposit by June 15. The invoice will also include the total amount of your tuition fees for your program and provide the due date for your balance of fees.

Do I need to make a deposit?

One $500 non-refundable deposit per academic year (September to August) will be required. The $500 deposit will be requested in your first study term each year and will be applied to your fee balance. In many cases the first study term will be Fall.

Would I ever need to make more than one deposit in an academic year?

Only if:

  1. you elect to switch your program of study during the academic year; or
  2. you take a term off from your studies during the academic year.

Is my deposit a payment against my program tuition fees?

Yes, your $500 deposit will be applied against your tuition fees reducing the balance you will be required to pay when the full fees are due on or before the 10th day of classes.

When is my deposit due?


If your first study term of the academic year is Fall, your deposit will be due June 15, 2018.
If your first study term of the academic year is Winter, your deposit will be due October 19, 2018.
If your first study term of the academic year is Summer, your deposit will be due March 22, 2019.

What if I change my mind after making my deposit but before the start of term?

Your $500 deposit is non-refundable if you decide to not attend Fanshawe. If you are only making changes to your program choice at Fanshawe, your $500 non-refundable deposit will be applied against the tuition for your new program at Fanshawe.

What if I withdraw after my tuition fees have been paid in full?

If you withdraw up to the 10th day of class, you will be eligible for a refund of the full tuition and ancillary fees paid for the term less the $500 non-refundable deposit.

If you withdraw after the 10th day of class you are responsible to pay the full fees for that term and will not be eligible for a refund.

When is the balance of my tuition fees due?

The balance of your tuition fees will be due on or before the 10th day of class each term. We encourage you to use online methods of payments and to not wait until the last day to make your payment. When paying by online banking or telephone banking please allow 5 days for your payment to reach the college by the due date. A payment by Visa or Mastercard using Fanshawe's WebAdvisor will process immediately. By paying early and paying online you will avoid line-ups and long waits and be able to focus on your studies.

What if my fees are not paid in full by the due date?

Avoid the late fee by paying your fees in full by the balance of fees due date. A late fee of $150 will apply on the 11th day of class if your fees are not paid in full by the due date each term.

What financial assistance is available to help with my education expenses?

Finding the funds to pay for tuition, housing, books and supplies can be a challenge. Before you get to Fanshawe, apply for a Fanshawe College Entrance Bursary or apply for eligible Fanshawe scholarships & awards.

Once you're at Fanshawe, apply for the Student Assistance Bursary, the Work Study Program or for Fanshawe Student Awards, Bursaries & Scholarships.

What if I have applied for OSAP and will be receiving OSAP funding?

You will be required to make a $500.00 deposit on the deposit due date even if you are expecting to receive OSAP funding. When you apply for OSAP, we encourage that you apply early and choose to redirect a portion of your OSAP funds to the College to pay your tuition fees. OSAP students that apply and submit their supporting documentation by August 1, 2017, and are eligible for OSAP funding to cover their tuition fees and choose to redirect funds will not incur a late fee.

What if I do not meet my admission conditions after I have paid my deposit?

If you do not meet an admission condition by the start of term and as a result are not allowed entry into that conditional program or you do not choose or are not eligible to attend an alternate program at Fanshawe, your $500 deposit will be refunded.

If you are being sponsored by a third party, including a First Nation or Second Career, and the college receives your sponsorship letter or signed contract by the deposit due date, you will not be required to make the $500 deposit. The sponsorship letter or signed contract will be sufficient to defer the deposit and secure your place in a program. We emphasize that receipt of the sponsorship letter or signed contract by the deposit due date is important especially for oversubscribed programs. If a sponsorship letter or signed contract is not available by the deposti due date, students will be required to make a $500 deposit to secure their place in the program.
