Incidental fees - Undergraduate

2018-2019 academic year

Incidental fees are related to student activities, services and associations. Examples include student federation and association fees, insurance fees or student services fees (Health Services, Sports and University Centre fees). They vary by level of study (undergraduate or graduate), by faculty and, in some cases, by department. Please note that in certain cases, incidental fees are not applied.

U-Pass

Fall 2018 and Winter 2019

New — This year, the cost of the U-Pass (Universal Transit Pass) has been included in the overall incidental fees. This is not an increase in incidental fees, but rather, a change in how this cost is presented. You can pay for your U-Pass along with your fall tuition, at a cost of $415.04. This U-Pass is valid for full time students for both the Fall and Winter terms, from September 1, 2018, to April 30, 2019. Full-time students enrolled for just the Winter term (not the Fall term) must pay $207.52 for a U-Pass, which is valid from January 1 to April 30.

Spring/Summer 2019

Students enrolled full time for the Spring-Summer term must pay $207.52 for a U-Pass, which is valid from May 1 to August 31.

University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP) for international students

In addition to the collective insurance premiums above, full time international students who study at an Ontario university must pay premiums for UHIP, a health insurance plan that covers most medical treatments and health services. Whereas collective insurance covers the cost of dental check-ups and many prescription drugs, UHIP covers doctor’s visits or trips to the emergency room.

Depending when you start your program, you will need UHIP coverage for 4, 8 or 12 months. The 12-month coverage period runs from September 1 to August 31. Rates vary from year to year.

Below are all the 2018–2019 coverage periods and amounts for a single person based on when you start your program:

  • September 2018: 12 months — $624
  • January 2019: 8 months — $416
  • Spring/Summer 2019:  4 months — $208

Note that rates are higher for family or couples coverage.
