Incidental Fees

All residents pay the following incidental fee:

* St. Michael’s Residence Council (SMRC) fee: $22.00

Students who live in SMC Residence but are not registered SMC students (i.e. professional faculties, non-SMC graduate students, students from other colleges, etc.) pay the following fees in addition to the SMRC fee:

* St. Michael’s College Student Union (SMCSU): $28.00

* St. Michael’s College Fee: $100.42

SMC students are automatically charged these incidental fees with their tuition.

Payment Options & Charges

The $600 reservation deposit must be paid through the online application and cannot be paid through ACORN/ROSI.

The first and second installments of your residence fees will be loaded onto your ACORN/ROSI account prior to Fall Term and can be paid online (see www.fees.utoronto.ca for instructions). Students are responsible for monitoring their own ACORN/ROSI account balance.

A service charge of 1.5% compounded monthly (19.56% per annum) will be levied by U of T on the 15th of every month to the unpaid balance of the first installment commencing October 15th, 2017 and to the unpaid balance of the second installment commencing December 15th, 2017 until the entire residence account is paid in full.

Fee Deferrals

Those students who are relying on OSAP or another government loan, scholarships, sponsorship or tuition waiver deferral must defer their fees on ACORN/ROSI following these instructions.
If you have successfully deferred your tuition fees, you have also deferred your residence fees. There is no separate deferral process for residence fees.

Withdrawal Policy

Early withdrawal from residence comes with serious financial implications.

We recommend that students are positive they want to live in residence before accepting their offer to avoid major financial loss.
