Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Fees and payment

Below are our most frequently asked questions regarding fees and payment.

  • How do I know how much to pay for tuition?

    You are only charged tuition once you have registered in your courses. Tuition is due in two instalments, one for each semester. If you have registered in your courses, follow the steps below to view your outstanding balance:           

    1. Log in to MyCampus.
    2. Click on Self Service Options (top right-hand corner).
    3. Select Student Information – Ontario Tech.
    4. Select Paying Your Fees.
    5. Select Account Detail by Term.
    6. View your net tuition balance.
  • How do I pay tuition? What if I receive OSAP?

    Find out acceptable methods of payment for tuition.

    If you are receiving enough OSAP to cover your tuition, an OSAP deferment will be placed on your account. An OSAP deferment will prevent any holds and late fees on your account until your enrolment has been confirmed and the funding sent to the university. It is your responsibility to check your tuition account and make sure that your OSAP funding has been received, and that fees have been paid in full for each semester.

  • What is the deadline to apply for OSAP?

    We recommend you apply for OSAP eight to 10 weeks before the start of your study period. You can also apply before you are accepted into your program. The online application includes information about all of the OSAP deadlines. If you miss these deadlines, your application will not be processed.

    • Application deadline: Submit your OSAP application no later than 60 days before the end of your study period.
    • Required documentation deadline: Our Student Awards and Financial Aid (SAFA) office must receive your required documents (e.g. proof of income, letter of explanation of your financial situation, signature pages) no later than 40 days before the end of your study period.
    • Review deadline: Our SAFA office must receive all OSAP appeals/review requests no later than 40 days before the end of your study period.
  • How do I know if I have a deferment or am eligible for one?

    You can check your account detail by term on MyCampus to see your tuition fees. Then, check your OSAP account to see the amount of OSAP funding set to be distributed for the semester. If your OSAP funding is greater than your tuition, and you have submitted all required supporting documents, you do not need to take any further action—we will place a deferment on your account for you. If you have less OSAP funding than tuition, you will need to pay the difference by the payment deadline.

  • What if I miss the deadline to pay tuition?

    The payment deadline schedule is posted online, as well as on the OT Undergraduate tab of MyCampus. It is your responsibility to be aware of any important dates that apply to you, and ensure all account fees are paid on time. If your fees are not paid by the deadline, your account will be subject to a late fee.

    Late fees are charged on a monthly basis of 1.5 per cent interest on the outstanding balance of your tuition account. 

  • I have a credit balance on my tuition account. How can I request a refund?

    You can check your tuition balance on MyCampus on the OT Undergraduate tab, within the helpful links section to the right of the page. Under paying your fees, select account summary by term. If your overall account balance is a negative number, you have a credit balance. 

    The University's practice is to leave credit balances on a student's account to be applied against the next academic term's fees. Refunds are scheduled five times throughout the school year (end of October, December, February, April and June).

    Approved refunds are processed within 4 to 6 weeks. If you require your refund sooner, please contact and request your overpaid fees to be refunded. Refund requests are assessed on a case by case basis and approval is not guaranteed.

    Please note: If you are eligible for a refund, the fastest way to receive it to sign up for direct deposit.

    To access and complete our Direct Deposit form:

    1. Log into your MyCampus account.
    2. Go to Self Service Options located on the top right corner.
    3. Click on Student Information – Ontario Tech.
    4. Go to Student Profile.
    5. On the Student Profile page, click on My Direct Deposit Info and a new Direct Deposit Allocation window will open.
    6. Click Add New and input your direct deposit information. 
    7. Check the authorization textbox and click Save New Deposit. The information you entered will be saved as a Prenote status.
    8. An email will be sent to your email address notifying you to submit the backup document to for verification. (i.e. a copy of a void cheque or a Direct Deposit Authorization form from the bank.)
    9. Once the backup is verified, the status of your banking information will change to Active. You will be informed once your banking info is verified.
    Note: If you are a student on OSAP, your refund must be approved by Student Awards and Financial Aid and may be refunded back to the National Student Loans Service Centre. If you are a graduate student not receiving OSAP, you must submit your request through the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.

    Approved refunds are paid via direct deposit or TouchNet/PayPath (if your tuition balance was paid by debit or credit card via the Student Account Centre). 

  • How do I complete/update my direct deposit banking information with Ontario Tech?

    Our direct deposit banking form can be found on MyCampus in the OT Documents tab. Your completed form must be emailed directly to

    The form requires you to provide your banking institution's name, branch address and phone number, transit number, and bank number. You will also need to ensure you have attached a void cheque or direct deposit authorization form in your email.

  • Do we receive an official receipt?

    You can request an official receipt for proof of tuition by emailing 

    Please note that you will be charged a $10 fee and official receipts cannot be used for tax purposes.

    If you don’t require an official receipt but want a breakdown of your fees, you can view and print your account detail by term on MyCampus, on the OT Undergraduate tab.
