Payroll Deductions

Automatic Deduction of Outstanding Fees and Tuition

The University's payroll system automatically deducts outstanding tuition and fees from the pay cheques of graduate teaching and research assistants a month after the start of Fall and Winter terms.

That is, any Fall tuition owing as of October 1 will be deducted from the student's October, November and December pay cheques in six installments (semi-monthly pay processing commenced effective July, 2012). As the first cheque in October reflects earnings from September 15 thru 30, the first deductions for Fall term will be from pay that is earned in the last 15 days of September.

Similarly, the first deduction for Winter term will be on the first February pay cheque. This pay cheque will reflect pay from work earned from January 15 thru to January 31.

Winter tuition owing as of February 1 will be automatically deducted from the student's February, March, and April pay cheques in six installments (semi-monthly pay processing became effective July, 2012).

For Spring and Summer, students will have six automatic deductions from their paycheques beginning in late May through August, for fees outstanding for Spring and Summer terms. 2016 pay deductions occur on the dates noted below.

Please note: Students cannot exempt themselves from this payroll deduction.

Full tuition for the Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer terms must be paid by the respective term deadlines in order to have no fees deducted from their paycheque.
