You Play an Integral Role

We know parents and guardians can be a major source of support to our students, both financial and otherwise. Whether you are making payments on their behalf or offering guidance as they plan to pay for their education, we recognize that you need to understand how your student’s fees and account work to best support them in making smart financial decisions. Explore the information below for questions that might be top-of-mind as you navigate the financial policies and procedures associated with attending Humber.

Frequently Asked Questions

About Fees

A mandatory, non-refundable tuition deposit is required each semester. One hundred percent of the tuition deposit is applied directly to tuition fees.

Students are then required to pay or arrange to pay the balance of their tuition fees before registering for classes. Payment methods can be reviewed at humber.ca/payment-options.

Tuition fees include tuition, compulsory ancillary fees, compulsory student union fees, program ancillary fees, and co-op placement or other equipment and lab fees as required.

Compulsory ancillary fees are required in order to enroll in or successfully complete any course or program of instruction. Ancillary fees are approved by a Fee Protocol Committee and by Humber's Board of Governors.

Visit humber.ca/fees for more information.

To obtain a statement of your student’s account, the student must log in to MyHumber to view and print their Student Invoice. Please be advised that recent transactions may not appear on this monthly invoice.

To verify their account is paid in full, the student can review recent transactions and current balance by logging into MyHumber > Account Detail for Term/Humber College Receipt.

The amount owed to the College is updated automatically whenever the student makes a payment or if there is a registration change on their account.

All students must pay a mandatory, non-refundable tuition deposit each semester. Students are then required to pay or arrange to pay the balance of their tuition fees before registering for classes. Due dates vary depending on the term. It could take between three to five business days for Humber to receive an online payment, so please plan accordingly. Once the payment due date passes, late charges may be applied to all unpaid amounts. Additionally, students who do not pay in full after arranging to pay tuition (e.g. third-party sponsorship or payment plan) by the published payment deadline(s), may be removed from their timetable. This means the student will be removed from all courses in a specific term and will be responsible for all fees owed to the College.

Visit the Academic Calendar to review important dates and deadlines for each term.

Humber does not accept in-person payments.

The easiest payment method is Online Banking through your financial institution. The Humber username/student ID (e.g. N00000000) is the ‘account number/reference number’, and Humber College is the ‘payee’. Online banking will help you/the student avoid payment delays.

Payments may also be made through MyHumber using Visa or MasterCard but a service fee will apply. The service fee is billed at a rate of 2.25 per cent of the payment amount and is paid directly to Moneris Solutions.

Review Humber’s Fee Payment Methods for detailed information and available payment options.

Please visit humber.ca/refunds for more information about the refund process. In general, all requests for refunds must be received no later than day 10 from the beginning of the term.

If the student is covered under your health and/or dental plan, they may be eligible to opt-out of Humber’s insurance plan and receive a refund for premiums paid. Information about opting out and opt-out dates can be found on the IGNITE website.

Thanks to a partnership with the HigherEd Points program, you can redeem loyalty points to help offset college fees. Points can be converted into $250 tuition credit increments to be deposited directly to your student account. Family and friends can convert points for a student of their choice. Details about this program can be found at higheredpoints.com/how-it-works.

About OSAP & Scholarships

The Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) is a financial aid program that can help students pay for college through grants and loans. OSAP is meant to supplement student resources and assessments are made with the expectation that students and their family have planned for the student's full-time post-secondary education. A financial contribution may be expected from parents, depending on income.

Students are still responsible for paying the mandatory, non-refundable tuition deposit each term out-of-pocket. They must also submit their OSAP application with all required documents and approved for sufficient funding to be considered to have arranged to pay the balance of their tuition fees before being permitted to register for classes. If the student has not yet been approved for OSAP funding or the assessment does not fully cover the balance of tuition fees, the student will be responsible for arranging an alternative payment option before being permitted to register.

Students receiving funding through OSAP must be registered full-time at Humber for the term(s) in which their OSAP is approved. Humber will confirm the student's full-time enrolment and notify the Ministry of the outstanding tuition balance to be paid directly to the College. Any remaining amount of assessed funding will be released to the bank.

Awarded scholarships and bursaries are automatically deducted from the amount owing for the current term and will display on the student's account as 'Anticipated Aid'.

Should the scholarship/bursary be greater than the amount owing on the student's account, a refund will be sent via INTERAC e-Transfer to the email address on the student's MyHumber account after the tenth day of the term, provided the student is still registered full-time.

About Student Accounts, Polices & Forms

Please know that the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) prohibits Humber from discussing details of student accounts with anyone other than the student. Should a student wish to grant account access to a third-party, they must submit a written third party authorization (Release of Information) form prior to releasing account information. The form releases information about their account only. Any requests to change contact information, receive a refund or drop a course must be received directly from the student. Visit Humber’s privacy policy for more detailed information.

Many parents have opened RESPs for their student's education. The student must be enrolled in courses for the specific term to have the RESP form verified by the Office of the Registrar. Students must pay or arrange to pay the balance of tuition fees before registering for courses then submit their RESP form by email to transcripts@humber.ca for confirmation of academic standing or enrolment from the College so the RESP provider can then release the funds to reimburse the cost of tuition.

All students are responsible for learning and understanding Humber's policies, deadlines and to ask questions if they need clarification. While we make every effort to communicate with our students regarding important dates, fees, and current account status, it is important for students to understand that it is their responsibility to monitor and make payments to their account.

Financial responsibility is a big step and an important one for all students, and we know your support can help prepare them to make the transition.
