Other Payment Options


Effective March 2020 we no longer accept cash as a payment option.

Graduate Students Payroll Deferment Plan

A graduate student is required to submit a Payroll Deferment form to the Student Accounts Office prior to the due-date of each semester: August 15 for the Fall semester, December 15 for the Winter semester, and May 15 for the Intersession/Summer semester. Effective May 1, 2023, to participate in the Graduate Student Payroll Deferment Plan, students are required to submit a copy of their contracts with this form.

If 90% of the student's GA, TA, RA and or Sessional, is enough to cover all of the tuition fees, then the interest is waived. If it is not enough, then the amount left owing must be paid by the financial due-date of the semester, August 15, December 15 and May 15. If payment is not made, interest is charged on that outstanding balance, until the difference is paid in full.

Effective Fall 2020, we will be deducting 100% of all funds being disbursed through Payroll until the outstanding Student Accounts balance is paid in full. Following that any remaining payments will be issued to the student.

Entrance Awards, Scholarships, and Bursaries

If you receive entrance awards, scholarships, and bursaries, they are applied as 50% in the Fall and 50% in Winter.

Entrance Bursaries, are applied as 100% in the Fall. Awards will show as Anticipated Aid on your student account. You may pay the difference of the balance owing on your account. If an award is not reflected on your student account, contact award1@uwindsor.ca. If you have paid your balance and have been awarded scholarships, and your account has a negative balance, you qualify for a refund. A refund cheque can be requested through UWinsite Student.

Third-Party Sponsors

The University defines a sponsor as a third party organization or group that is covering some or all of the costs of a student's fees. This includes (but is not limited to) Native Groups, Government Embassies, WSIB Claimants or Employers of students. Please send sponsor inquiries to sponsor@uwindsor.ca


Students eligible for tuition remission can refer to the HR website find more information. The Tuition Waiver covers base tuition only for credit courses approved by the Senate of the University of Windsor. Expenses not eligible under the waiver program include compulsory incidental fees, societal, health/drug/dental plan fees, books, instructor materials, supplies, and/or other supplemental fees for registration or examinations etc.

The University of Windsor offers an incentive of free tuition and incidental fees for students 65 years of age and over, for non-professional programs. It is felt that people in this group might wish to avail themselves of the University facilities, not only for non-professional degree purposes, but perhaps for personal enrichment and the fuller utilization of their leisure time.

It was determined that professional programs for which the senior waiver will not apply include the following: Commerce and Business Administration, Education, Engineering, Law, Music, Nursing, and Social Work. These programs are included in the Ministry's official list of professional programs. This applies to both undergraduate and graduate level programs in these disciplines.

If you feel that your needs can be served according to this program, we encourage and invite you to contact the Student Information/Advising Resource Centre at 519-253-3000 ext. 1414. This program applies to Canadian citizens or Permanent Residents of Canada only.
