TUITION AND EXPENSES

A tuition deposit is required each semester prior to course registration, and the remaining tuition balance is due after registration is complete. Tuition deposit and tuition balance deadlines can be found on the Academic Calendar.

  • A $250 tuition deposit is mandatory, non-refundable and paid per academic term.
  • For first semester students, if a student has an offer of admission within the same academic year, the tuition deposit is generally transferrable between terms (Fall, Winter, and Summer). For returning students, the tuition deposit is generally transferrable between terms within the same academic year, as long as it is prior to registration, and the student has an offer of admission. Post-registration, the tuition deposit is non-transferable for returning students.
  • 100% of the tuition deposit is applied directly to your tuition fees.

Other Fees

An additional fee of $440 to $660 (in some cases added to the academic semesters) will be charged to all students that have a co-op placement within their curriculum.

Co-op fees are non-refundable in the event that a student does not qualify for the co-op placement for academic reasons or if they withdraw after the last day to receive a refund during the semester.

Students may be required to complete specific courses or achieve specific grades before being allowed to proceed with a co-op or work placement.

Note: Co-op Fees for international placements may be higher.

Some programs include lab fees as part of the tuition. The charge is listed on the fee invoice and is due by the tuition fee due date.

An equipment deposit is levied for several programs and covers any equipment that may break while being used by students.

Specific equipment deposit information will be communicated to all students prior to enrolment in the program.

The deposit is refundable at the end of the year after authorization is given by the program co-ordinator.

All certificate and diploma students are required to take an assessment test to determine their language proficiency. This may take place during the Admissions process as an Admissions test, or a Computerized College Placement Test (CCPT), which takes place before students register for courses.

Based on the test results, some students may be exempted from taking one or more of their required communications courses. However, some students may be required to take a remedial writing course, at an additional charge, before being permitted to take their required communications course(s).

To better serve our growing population of second language learners, specialized English as a second language (ESL) courses are now offered as part of the communications curricula. Students are placed directly into the appropriate level ESL course on the basis of their assessment test. Successful completion of these courses will satisfy any communications requirements.

All first semester technology and most business students in certificate or diploma programs are assessed in mathematics. Similar to Communications courses, these assessments may take place during the Admissions process as an Admissions test, or a Computerized College Placement Test, which takes place before students register for courses.

Based on the assessment results, some students will be required to enroll in an additional mathematics course, at an additional charge, to help improve their mathematical skills. These students will then take the other required mathematics courses in more senior semesters.

A $100 late charge will apply when students fail to pay their account balance by the published deadlines found in the Academic Calendar. It may also result in a student's account being transferred to collections.

Late payment of fees may result in the loss of a program seat. Humber is not obligated to hold seats for students who fail to pay tuition fees by the specified due date. Late payments will only be accepted if space remains in the program.

A $50 late testing fee may apply for Computerized College Placement Testing if tests are not completed by specified dates. Visit the Test Centre site for more information.
