Deregistration and Reinstatement

Fall, Winter and Summer Deregistration

Financial deregistration is the removal of all course sections in a specific semester. Financial deregistration occurs when a student fails to settle their account (pay in full or have an approved Financial Agreement Request by Student Financial Services) by the published payment deadline date. Tuition and fees deadline dates are posted on the Critical Financial Dates page.

All communication from Student Financial Services is communicated to students via their University of Guelph-Humber email account.

Prior to financial deregistration, payment reminder emails are sent to students. If the account is still not settled, financial deregistration occurs and a notification is emailed to students. In addition to all course sections in the specific semester being removed, the tuition and compulsory fees for that same semester will also be removed from the student’s account on WebAdvisor.

If a student has been deregistered due to financial reasons and wishes to continue their studies they must contact finaid@guelphhumber.ca to obtain the amount to be paid (including additional reinstatement and/or late payment fees) and complete the appropriate reinstatement process.

$200 Non-Refundable Deposit Deregistration (Prior to Fall Semester Only)

In addition to the financial deregistration for non-payment of accounts each semester, deregistration occurs in August for students who do not pay the mandatory $200 non-refundable deposit by the published deadline.

If a student has been deregistered due to financial reasons and wishes to continue their studies they must contact finaid@guelphhumber.ca to obtain the amount to be paid (including additional reinstatement and/or late payment fees) and complete the appropriate reinstatement process.

Fall, Winter and Summer Reinstatement Process

The reinstatement deadline dates are as follows for each respective semester:

Reinstatement of course sections following financial deregistration requires students to settle their account with Student Financial Services and complete specific paperwork. The paperwork a student needs to complete and submit will depend on the point in the semester they are being reinstated:

  1. Reinstatements prior to the reinstatement deadline date require students to settle their account in full and provide proof of payment to Student Financial Services. Accounts can only be settled through a bank transfer.  No other methods of payment will be accepted. A copy and paste of proof of payment will not be accepted.  The proof of payment must include:
    • the date the payment was made
    • your seven-digit student ID number in full, no blanks and/or astrics
    • the amount transferred to your student account
  2. Students making reinstatement requests on/after the reinstatement deadline date must follow these steps:
    • Step One: Students must meet with your Academic Advisor to complete a Late Re-Registration Request Form.
    • Step Two: Students will have to settle their account in full, provide proof of payment to Student Financial Services and have Student Financial Services sign their Late Re-Registration Request Form. Settle their account in full and provide proof of payment to Student Financial Services. Accounts can only be settled through a bank transfer.  No other methods of payment will be accepted. A copy and paste of  proof of payment will not be accepted.  The proof of payment must include:
      • the date the payment was made
      • your seven-digit student ID number in full, no blanks and/or astrics
      • the amount transferred to your student account
    • Step Three: Students will then drop the completed/signed Late Re-Registration Request Form off at Registrarial Services for reinstatement.

Please Note:

  • Reinstatement on/after the reinstatement deadline date is not guaranteed.
  • When being reinstated after the fall and winter tuition and fees deadline dates, students course loads will be re-added as it appeared prior to financial deregistration and subsequent course drop penalties will remain in effect.
  • A reinstatement fee of $200 for full-time students or $100 for part-time students will be levied for students wishing to re-register after financial deregistration by Student Financial Services each semester.
  • The CourseLink component for all course sections (including Distance Education sections) may require up to 48 business hours processing time to be re-established after the reinstatement of the course section on WebAdvisor.

$200 Non-Refundable Registration Deposit Reregistration

The $200 Non-Refundable Registration Deposit deregistration occurs before the “Fall Early Add Period”. Students who are deregistered at this time that wish to continue their studies must pay the mandatory $200 Non-Refundable Registration Deposit, self-confirm their payment has been posted to their WebAdvisor Account Summary (normally takes 1-3 business day to process) and then re-select their courses for the fall semester. Accounts can only be settled through a bank transfer. No other methods of payment will be accepted.

Please note that students who are financially deregistered for non-payment of the mandatory $200 Non-Refundable Registration Deposit are not guaranteed the same spot in the course sections they may have selected prior to deregistration taking place.
