Unpaid Accounts

Fees for Tuition, Compulsory Incidentals, Residence, and Meal Plans are due on or before the deadline. Payments made after the deadline are subject to interest. If you register after the deadline, you must pay your fees within 1 business day to avoid interest.  Unless arrangements have been made with the Cashiers’ Office, accounts not fully paid by the due date are subject to sanctions. The University will not:

  • Permit course changes in the current term.
  • Permit registration in future terms.
  • Issue  transcripts of grades nor a University Degree Parchment
  • Issue income tax receipts for any semester(s) which remain unpaid.
  • Issue any letters of permission or confirmation of graduation eligibility

The University reserves the right to refuse production of documentation for additional purposes at their sole discretion. You will not receive your degree at convocation if you owe the University money.  Reminders are sent out prior to convocation.

Once an account becomes non-current, balances remaining unpaid are considered for external collection. Two reminders are sent to the mailing address on UWinsite Student. If payment is not received or a payment plan is not made, the account may be listed with an external collection agency. The University wants to avoid this extreme measure and we encourage students to discuss their situation with us. We will accommodate payment plans to the best of our ability - all we ask is that the student makes a commitment to pay off their balance and remains consistent. If you make an arrangement to pay and fail to follow the arrangement, your account will be listed with the collection agency. The sanctions remain in effect and interest charges will accumulate until the debt has been settled to the satisfaction of the University. Contact: studentaccounts@uwindsor.ca

Once an account is listed with our external collection agency, they follow up on your account on our behalf.
