Student Financial Responsibilities
Upon registering in a course, students accept responsibility for all financial obligations with the University regardless of how the fees are being funded (e.g., RESPs, government loans). It is also the responsibility of students to be aware of all financial and academic deadlines and to ensure they are officially registered in their courses through myTrent. Credit will not be issued for dropped courses once financial deadlines have passed. Payments will be applied to any balance owing from prior sessions before being applied to current session fees. Students who register for courses but do not attend classes are still responsible for all fees.
It is the student's responsibility to ensure their payment(s) are received by the Student Accounts Office or Graduate Office (for Grad Students) on or before the due date(s).
- Late Fee $75. per payment deadline date
- Interest 1% per month and 12% per annum
- Returned cheques $40. charge
Unpaid Student Accounts
Students who have not paid their accounts in full will not be permitted to register for the next session. Access to myTrent will be restricted and grades, transcripts, and degree and diploma certificates will not be released until the financial obligations have been settled fully. Letter requests made to the Office of the Registrar will be subject to review and authorization by Financial Services (Student Accounts). Education students will not have credentials recommended to the Ontario College of Teachers if a balance remains outstanding.
Unpaid accounts of students who are no longer registered with the University will be placed with a collection agency and the students will be unable to register for any further courses until the outstanding balance has been paid. Trent University reserves the right to use any legal means to reclaim delinquent balances. Trent University currently has contracted the services of Uplevel Collection Agency and Shellco Credit Systems for collection of past due accounts.
The University also reserves the right to request a pre-payment of the fees prior to registration for any account that has been delinquent.
