Get ready to Experience Georgian! Find out how to confirm your seat in your program and pay your tuition deposit by the deadline.

How to confirm your seat

I’ve accepted Georgian’s offer of admission. Now what do I do?

Once you’ve accepted our offer, you will receive a confirmation/invoice letter stating your full fees for the first term and your next steps.

An important next step is that you must pay a non-refundable deposit or full fees by the deadline in order to confirm your seat in the program. The minimum non-refundable deposit amount is $250 ($2,500 for international/visa students).

Paying your fees by the due date confirms your seat in the program – which means your spot won’t be given to another student. It also allows you access to Banner, our student information system for registration, timetables, fees, books and more.

Do I have to pay fees if I have a conditional offer of admissions or if I’m being sponsored or applying for OSAP?

Yes, you have to pay the non-refundable deposit or full fees by the deadlines to confirm your seat. The only exception is sponsored students.

What are the fee deadlines?

I’m a sponsored student. Do I still pay a deposit?Georgian College Chevron

Students who are sponsored by a government agency, WSIB, employer or some other organization that is providing fees directly to Georgian College must provide a supporting letter prior to the fees due date. The letter must verify such sponsorship and provide an explanation as to how and when fees will be paid to Georgian, the amount being sponsored and for what duration. Your records will be updated to allow you to register in courses.

Some fees may not be covered under your sponsorship (i.e., parking, bus pass, etc.). Check with your sponsorship agency to see if you are covered for such additional costs. These must be stated on your sponsorship letter. If you are a sponsored student with a point of contact on campus (i.e., a Student Success advisor), be sure to contact this person upon acceptance into your program. Contact information is available through your sponsorship agency or Georgian College.

I’ve applied for a financial aid program (OSAP). Do I still pay a deposit?Georgian College Chevron

All students, including OSAP recipients, must pay a deposit to secure their spot in the program and register for courses. For more information, check Financial Aid.
