2014/2015 College Fees

General Information (September 2014 - August 2015)

Tuition Fees

The tuition fee framework is set by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities and administered by the Registrar’s Office. Tuition fees are differentiated by program level. New students are defined as those who start the program at semester 1 in either Fall 2014, Winter 2015, or Summer 2015. Continuing students are those who started Semester 1 or 2 of the program prior to Fall 2014. Students who transfer programs are charged the tuition fees in effect for the relevant program / semester. Students who repeat a semester pay the same tuition rates as other students in the repeated program / semester.

Full-Time Student

A full-time student is defined as one who is registered in 66.66% or more of the regularly assigned semester courses of a day program and/or 70% or more of the regularly assigned student contact hours of a day program. A full-time student pays a full semester tuition fee. Please see exceptions.

Part-time Student

A part-time or partial-load student is defined as one who is registered in less than 66.66% of the regularly assigned semester courses of a day program and/or less than 70% of the regularly assigned student contact hours of a day program. Part-time students may be accommodated only after all students in full-time programs have been registered. Please see exceptions.

Student Taking Extra Course

Standard tuition fees are charged for standard programs. Should a student take more than the normal number of courses (as defined in the calendar) in a particular semester for any reason, an additional fee will be assessed at $6.23 per contact hour for the extra course. This includes situations where student programs have been altered to provide for remedial or developmental studies, or where a student is granted approval by the Chair of his/her School to enrol in an extra course. Please see exceptions.

Student Taking Continuing Education Courses

If a student chooses to register courses in Faculty of Continuing Education (FCE or Evening), the standard fee rate published by those divisions applies. Please see exceptions.

Fees Deadline

The fee payment deadline will be published in the fees information accompanying all acceptance letters. This will indicate the date on which your fees are due in full. When the College receives your fees, the funds are deposited to reserve a place in the program of your choice. If you fail to submit tuition fees within the stipulated time, you will forfeit your reserved position in the program.

Refund of Fees - Domestic Students

Full-time students will receive a refund of tuition fees paid less $100.00 (less $25.00 per subject for reduced load students) if you notify the Office of the Registrar of your withdrawal from the College, in writing, any time from the date fees were initially paid until the 10th day of scheduled classes. Late fees are not refunded if you withdraw.

Note: Four to six weeks are required to process refund cheques.

Withdrawal After the Tenth Day of Classes

Students who register at Seneca College are considered to have purchased a seat in the program. Should you withdraw (in writing) by the tenth day of scheduled classes, your seat will be offered to a student on our waiting list.

In the event you withdraw after the tenth day of scheduled classes, the College can no longer offer your seat to someone else due to the amount of class time missed at that point. As a result, there will be no refund, in whole or in part, for the semester. If your fees have not yet been paid in full, you will be required to pay any outstanding balance on your student account for the semester. Collection agencies will be engaged if required.

Students with a documented disability may be eligible for specialized tuition payments according to the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.

Tuition Fees - International Students

Tuition fees for students who attend on a study permit (international students) are $11,970.00 (2 semesters) effective September 1, 2014 and are subject to change in 2015. Health insurance is not included in the tuition fee for full-time international students. Tuition will be prorated for part-time international students, based on the course load and the program selected. Som programs, including bachelor's degrees, have higher international fees.

 (international student tuition fee) 

x $100

 

(tuition fee for Canadian citizens)

Other College Fees:

  • Academic Appeals:

    Students who launch a formal academic appeal are required to pay a non- refundable $25.00 fee for each level of appeal. The fee covers all matters under appeal, and is payable at the Registration Office.

  • Applicant Testing Fee:

    Applicant testing is required for some programs at the College. The one-time charge for the Mature Student Test is $55.00.

  • Auditing Fee:

    Students auditing courses are doing so as a matter of personal interest and not for academic credit. Such students are not entitled to examination or other evaluation privileges, and in no instance may credit standing be obtained for a course which has been audited. If you are auditing any course, you must apply for audit privileges through the Office of the Registrar. Tuition fees will be equal to the regular tuition fees associated with that course when taken for credit purposes.

  • Co-operative Education Administrative Fee:

  • Degree, Diploma or Certificate Replacement Fee:

    The replacement fee for a degree, diploma or certificate is $55.00 plus $7.15 HST.

  • Late Fees:

    If you fail to pay your fees by the date(s) stipulated by the College, you will be assessed a $65.00 late payment fee for each infraction.

  • Late Testing Fee:

    Skills Assessment/College Placement testing administered to place students who have already been admitted to a college program in the appropriate Mathematics and/or English level is normally provided at no cost to the student. However, there is a $30.00 late testing fee for those who do not write the test(s) prior to the published deadline date. That date is included with Admissions information each semester.

    For the English Language Institute, assessment tests provided on a published date each semester are free of charge to new international students. There is a late testing fee of $50.00.

  • Learning Materials, Equipment and Clothing Retained by the Student:

    a) borrow books and equipment from the Library Resource Centre;
    b) gain admittance to student government sponsored events;
    c) borrow sports equipment or use sporting facilities at Seneca; and
    d) make cashless transactions.

This privilege entitles the student, on payment of a $15.00 fee per supplemental examination, to write an examination in that subject or to complete other prescribed work as directed by the Promotion Committee. The fee is non-refundable.

  • T2202A Form:

    A $10.00 fee plus $1.30 H.S.T. is charged for a duplicate or replacement T2202A form (income tax receipt).

Notice of Change of Fees

All fees listed here are subject to change in 2015-2016. The College will make every effort to provide as much advance notice as possible to students when College fees change. A complete schedule of fees is provided to each student admitted to the College.
