Tuition fees for International students are significantly higher. Western University receives no government funding for International Students. Refer to www.registrar.uwo.ca
for the most up-to-date fee information.
It is the student's responsibility to be familiar with and understand all the University regulations contained in the Calendar; to understand how adding and dropping a course or courses, withdrawal, etc., affects a tuition fee account; and to ensure that tuition fees are paid in full without any notice from the University.
A student's registration is dependent upon payment of fees and academic eligibility.
Students are considered full-time if they register in 3.5 credits or more and will pay full-time undergraduate fees. Students will pay part-time undergraduate fees on a per course basis if they are registered in less than 3.5 credits. Failure to complete the registration process during the designated time will result in a late registration fee.
Proof of Canadian citizenship or permanent resident status must be submitted to Student Central, room 1120 in the Western Student Services Building prior to registration. If this information is not received promptly, International Student fees will be charged.
International Students whose status in Canada has changed must submit proof of Canadian citizenship or permanent resident status to Student Central, room 1120 in the Western Student Services Building. To be eligible to pay the lower Canadian tuition rate, you must submit your documentation no later than November 1 of the current academic year. This deadline cannot be changed. If you provide proof of Canadian citizenship after this date, you will not receive a refund. No retroactive changes are possible. You will be required to pay the amount that was originally assessed.
Tax certificates (T2202A) for the tuition portion of fees are available at the end of February each year through your Student Center account (student.uwo.ca).
Income tax slips for scholarships, awards, and bursaries (T4A) will be available at the end of February to eligible students.
When courses are cancelled because a minimum enrolment quota has not been met, the full tuition paid will be refunded to a student. Every attempt will be made to assist the student in finding an alternative course of study. No interest is paid on refunded tuition.
