Supplementary Fees

The Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities permits universities to charge supplementary fees in addition to regular tuition fees. There are three types of supplementary fees: a) those which are centrally collected and part of the tuition fee; b) those approved by student referenda; and c) associated course fees.

a) Centrally collected. Supplementary fees covering athletics/recreation, counselling, and cultural and special services are permitted and are included in the per credit fee for tuition.

b) Approved by student referenda. Supplementary fees approved by student referenda are included in the per credit fee for tuition.

c) Associated course fees. Fees for work-term placement, learning material/clothing retained by the student, and production material for items which become student property, may be listed on your student account statement, or may be charged locally. If you have any questions about whether a particular supplementary fee falls into one of the above categories and can be charged in addition to your tuition, contact the Chair of the department or unit charging the fee first. If, after having done so, you wish to pursue the matter further, please address your concerns to the Office of Student Financial Services. See the Web for their current address at http://www.yorku.ca/osfs.

In accordance with Canada Customs and Revenue Agency regulations, the supplementary fee component of a tuition fee payment, and any course material fees cannot be included in the tuition tax credit, and therefore are not captured on the Tuition and Education Credit Certificate (see Tuition and Education Credit Certificate).

Note: The procedures and policies which govern associated fees differ from those which govern tuition and supplementary fees.
