Refer to the Fees and Finance information at https://www.ryerson.ca/registrar/fees.html for an explanation and breakdown of fees charged.
There are two different academic fee rates for Ryerson Students:
- The Regular Fee Rate for students who are Canadian Citizens, Permanent Residents, and who are specifically exempted by government regulation from the International Fee Rate.
- The International Fee Rate for students on Student Visas, Visitor Visas, other Visas, and students who have not provided or are unwilling to provide documentary proof of exempt status to the Office of the Registrar Client Services located in the ServiceHub (POD 150).
If students wish to be considered under one of the approved exempt categories, they must review the list of exemptions outlined on the Fees Categories page and provide valid, original documentation necessary to verify such a request. Photocopies are not acceptable.
All documents presented in support of consideration for exemption, or if requested as proof of status, must be submitted to the ServiceHub, Room POD 150, enter through the Library Building.
If students are unable to provide the required documentation before paying tuition fees, they will be required to pay the International Fee Rate.
Official documentation must be presented by November 1 for the Fall term, January 31 for the Winter term and June 15 for the Spring/Summer term in order to be eligible.
Payment of the University Health Insurance Plan is compulsory for all International Students
If the acceptable documentation for exemption from the International Fee Rate contains an expiry date, it is the student’s responsibility to bring updated documentation to International Student Support, Room POD50A no later than ten (10) working days before the expiry date on the original documentation. This must be done to retain exemption status.
