Paying your deposit

Domestic Students

For new domestic undergraduate students, a $300 deposit must be paid after you begin enrolling in courses.

A registration deposit is required only once, for the very first academic session in which you enrol in courses. Since the deposit is part of your tuition, it will not appear as a separate charge on your student account statement.

The tables below indicate the registration deposit due dates according to the first date of enrolment into a course.

If you miss your deposit payment deadline, you will not be permitted to enrol in additional courses through the Registration and Enrolment Module and will be de-enrolled from courses you’ve registered for.

The registration deposit for Osgoode Hall Law School JD students is slightly different. Please visit Osgoode's Tuition, Fees and Key Dates page for more information.

  • Payment must be made through telephone or online banking. Go to the Paying my account page for more information about electronic payments. Please see section “Paying from a Canadian bank account"
  • If you miss your deposit payment deadline, you will not be permitted to enrol in additional courses through the Registration and Enrolment Module and will be de-enrolled from courses you’ve registered for.
  • When you make late payments, your enrolment access cannot be opened until the day after the payment is received; please plan accordingly. To get more information, check your Student Account Online Statement.If you wish to drop one or more of your courses, you must officially drop the course(s) using the online Registration and Enrolment Module; otherwise, you may lose all or part of the tuition you paid for it, as per the relevant Refund Tables. Simply not attending classes does not release you from the financial or academic obligation for courses in which you have previously enrolled.

If you do not pay your deposit (and are not eligible for an academic fee waiver*), you will be de-enrolled from your courses. Space in the courses will then be made available to other students.

Check the Registration and Enrolment Module (REM) to determine if you have been de-enrolled. If you have been removed from a course, you will need to pay your deposit to confirm your registration and enable you to re-add a course. Note that there is no guarantee that space will still be available in any of your preferred courses after being de-enrolled.

  • For details on how to pay your deposit, visit the Paying my account page or visit the Course and Program Fees page to learn about the other charges to your student account.
  • Payments take up to four days to be transferred from your bank to York. Please plan accordingly to avoid interest charges or de-enrolment.
  • If you have been de-enrolled and the last date to add without permission from the course instructor has passed, then you will have to contact the instructor and the department offering the course for permission to enrol.

*For information about Academic Fee Waivers, please see the Paying through Sponsorship or Paying with a Waiver sections of the Paying my Account page.

Please note: If you miss your deposit payment deadline, you will not be permitted to enrol in additional courses through the Registration and Enrolment Module.

International Students

After accepting your offer, undergraduate international students are required to pay a $1500 non-refundable acceptance deposit. This non-refundable deposit is part of your tuition fee and will be credited to your student account.

Whether or not you need a Provincial Attestation Letter (PAL) to apply for a study permit, the $1500 acceptance deposit is required from all undergraduate international students to maintain your offer.

To learn how to pay your registration deposit, please see the section “Paying from an International Bank Account" section of the Paying my account page.
