Overdue Accounts

Student accounts are considered delinquent if they are not paid in full after the due date for the term. If your account is delinquent, a financial hold will be placed on your student account; this hold will prevent you from obtaining official academic documents (diplomas, transcripts, letters of permission, official confirmations, etc.) and from registering to another term.

The University is under no obligation to issue any transcript, to award any diploma, or to register a student if that student has not paid tuition fees, residence fees, or any other fee appearing on his statement of account.

The delinquent accounts of students who fail to settle their debt will be referred to the University of Ottawa Internal Collection Department following this schedule:

 

Last registered term

Transfer to Collection Department

Summer

Following winter term

Fall

Following summer term

Winter

Following fall term

 

Special students

The delinquent accounts of special students will be transferred to the University of Ottawa Internal Collection Department at the end of the next registration period (approximately two months after the end of the registered term).

 

Convocation / Official documents

We appreciate that some students may be experiencing financial difficulties. Students owing money to the University of Ottawa do not require special permission to participate at the University’s graduation ceremony. Although they may attend the celebration, they will not receive diplomas, certificates, transcripts or enrolment verification documents (statements of studies, statements of degrees conferred)

Delinquent accounts will be transferred to the University of Ottawa Internal Collection Department after the ceremonies.
