Tuition, Fees and Residence Costs

Billing and payments are completed on a semester basis rather than annually. In an effort to spread out the financial burden, payments are required at the start of each semester instead of having to pay the entire amount all at once at the beginning of the school year.

Tuition and fees are calculated based on the selection of academic program, course load, cohort year, citizenship, room and meal plan selection and parking and lockers if required. These fees (tuition and fees, registration deposit, meal plan and residence fees - excluding the residence deposit) are due by the semester deadline date posted. Students' accounts may be viewed through WebAdvisor. The University does not issue printed bills or statements.

Tuition Fees and Academic Course Load

Tuition and fees are dependent on how many credits a student is registered for in each semester.


The normal full-time semester load for each academic program is 2.50 credits except where otherwise prescribed by the schedule of studies. All students registered in 2.00 credits (or more) in any given semester are considered full-time.


A student who is registered in fewer than 2.00 credits in a semester is considered part-time.

$200 Non-Refundable Registration Deposit (Fall ONLY)

In order to ensure retention of the courses you select or to be able to add and drop courses for the registering semester, all students are required to pay a minimum non-refundable registration deposit of $200 by the registration deposit deadline. Your Non-Refundable Registration Deposit will be applied to your student account. All previous outstanding balances must be paid first or the $200 will be applied to the outstanding balance and will not be considered as a non-refundable registration deposit. Please review your account on WebAdvisor and consult the preferred payment methods for the registration deposit. 

Failure to pay the non-refundable registration deposit will result in: 

  1. Blocked access to course selection for the registering semester. 
  2. De-registration (the removal of courses as a result of not meeting payment requirements and deadlines), which will free up spaces in those courses that other students can then select. 

Please note: All students must pay the $200 Non-Refundable Registration Deposit by the registration deadline, regardless of funding sources, e.g. OSAP, RESP, scholarships, etc.

University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP)

The University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP) is a mandatory insurance to pay the cost of the hospital and medical services that international students may need during their stay in Canada while registered at the University. The fee is compulsory, and it is charged as part of your tuition and fees which can be viewed on WebAdvisor.

Full-Time Students

Full-time paid international students are covered under the University health insurance plan from the first day of classes. The insurance fee is pro-rated based on the semester you begin your studies, i.e., September, January or May. The health care insurance is a basic package that is subject to change on an annual basis. It is important to emphasize that not all health conditions are covered.

Review Your Coverage

International students are strongly urged to review their coverage information and purchase additional insurance coverage as appropriate. If you have any questions, please contact the Humber College International Office.

This health insurance coverage is for international students only. It does not include spouses or children. If you have a spouse and/or dependents, you may wish to pay a supplemental fee and purchase insurance. Arrangements for adding family members are made directly with Morcare, our health insurance provider. The option to add family members will not be available until the start of the semester. A link will appear on the landing page for a limited time.
