This page will outline the Payment and Cancellation Terms & Conditions for the International Summer Academy programs. Registrants will receive a copy of these Terms & Conditions in their invoice.

Please note that this page does not include Payment and Cancellation Terms & Conditions for Online Learning programs. 

Deposit Payment & Registration Process 

All new registrants will receive an email to the account’s primary email address when their application has been processed and accepted, and they have been successfully enrolled. Upon receiving the Confirmation of Enrolment email, the minimum non-refundable payment must be paid within five business days. Full payment can be made at any time following enrolment into your registered course.  

Failure to make the minimum payment within five business days of receiving the Confirmation of Enrolment email will result in the application being moved to the Waitlist to allow other students to join the course. If the minimum payment is made while on the Waitlist, and there is available space in the course, the application will be reinstated with the Accepted status.  


Registrants have until the Final Payment Deadline to pay their full program fees and complete all necessary forms in order to finalize their registration in the program. The International Programs Office reserves the right to cancel any registrants who have an outstanding balance after the final payment deadline.  

Payments can be made with VISA, Mastercard, Discover, or an International Wire Transfer made payable to the University of Toronto. An additional fee will apply per International Wire Transfer transaction payment.

Acceptance to any program is subject to the information provided in the application process being true and accurate. The International Programs Office reserves the right to deny access to any participant who has been accepted if the information provided is misleading with regards to the participant’s eligibility to be in the program. A copy of this policy is also available on the registrant’s invoice.

Travelling during the Pandemic

Due to the evolving global health situation, travel plans may change as a result of unforeseen and new restrictions imposed by Canada or your home country. As such, it is recommended that students not purchase airline tickets or make travel arrangements that are non-refundable; the International Programs is not responsible for cancellation fees. Please consult the appropriate government and travel authorities regarding travel advisories, vaccine requirements, and other related requirements departing your home country and entering Canada.
