Seneca student

Announcement to all international students:

Starting Fall 2017, Seneca College is implementing an annual health insurance plan for all full-time international students. The plan will provide health coverage during the academic year, preventing unexpected emergency medical expenses as a result of illness or accident .


For those who have already paid fees for the Fall 2017 term, an outstanding balance due to a change in rates will need to be paid at the start of the term. New rates and refund policy will be effective as of Sept. 1, 2017. Click here to see the rates and refund policy.


For more information, visit the International Student Centre at your campus or call 416.491.5050, ext. 26934.

Health Insurance

All international students have mandatory health insurance (covered by Morcare) included in their tuition fees while studying at Seneca College. International students enrolled in a full-time professional program will be automatically included in the health insurance plan for the current academic year (September 1 to August 31), depending on their program start date.

If you are an international student who has a valid Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP), please contact our International Student Coordinator at and view our applicable refund policy.
