Status in Canada Exemptions: November 1, 2019 Deadline

Has your legal status in Canada changed? Is your legal status up to date?

Students who are granted permanent residency or who become Canadian citizens before November 1 are eligible to pay domestic fees. In certain limited cases, international students can also qualify to pay domestic fees, if they meet the requirements for a Status in Canada fee exemption.

If your legal status needs to be updated, or if you qualify for a Status in Canada fee exemption, for a reassessment for the complete fall and winter session, bring original documents to substantiate the claim to SGS by November 1. Visit Student Accounts for details.

Please note: for international students who change to domestic status during their study period, the minimum degree fee will be assessed as follows:

  • ​if the legal status change occurred within the program length, the minimum degree fee will be based on the domestic tuition fee;
  • ​​​if the legal status change occurred after the program length, the minimum degree fee will be based on the international tuition fee.

For additional details, please refer to the Balance of Degree Fee information in the SGS Calendar.
