How to accept your offer

OUAC application

You’ll receive a confirmation number once you accept. If you don’t receive one, your changes and responses were likely not saved and you should try again. After submitting your response to the OUAC, you'll be locked out of your account for one to three days. Log back into your account after that time to ensure that your response was received.

Your ChooseTMU Applicant Portal will reflect your response within two business days.

How to pay

Pay through your Canadian bank account by selecting “Toronto Metropolitan University” as the payee. Use your nine-digit TMU Student Number as your account number.

If you don’t have a Canadian bank account, you can make your payment via one of three international payment options. Visit how to pay your tuition and fees page for detailed instructions on how to make a payment.

Allow three to five business days for your deposit to be applied to your MyServiceHub student account. Confirm your tuition deposit was received by TMU and access a Deposit Statement via your Student Center on MyServiceHub. Please visit the MyServiceHub Support: How to Confirm Your Tuition Deposit Was Received page for details.

 Common questions

I don't see a tuition deposit charge on my MyServiceHub account. What should I do?

A charge will not appear on your MyServiceHub account.  Once paid, the tuition deposit will appear as a negative balance on your account. It will be applied to your tuition fees. It will remain as a negative balance until we charge your tuition and fees for the term. See how to confirm your tuition deposit was received for details.

What happens if I don’t pay my tuition deposit or I miss the deadline?

If we don’t receive your payment on time, we’ll assume that you don’t want to pursue studies at TMU. Your place in your program will be cancelled. 

I missed the tuition deposit deadline and my offer has been cancelled. What should I do?

If your offer is cancelled and you would like to have it reactivated, please contact the ServiceHub. Late payments may not be accepted. Reactivation of an offer is subject to space availability at that time.

Can I use the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) to pay my tuition deposit?

OSAP funding will be released in installments in September and January. Since the tuition deposit is due June 6, 2024, please ensure that you can make this payment.

When do I pay the remaining tuition balance and fees?

Fall term tuition and fees will be posted in your MyServiceHub student account in early August. Your tuition deposit payment will be applied towards the balance. Note that fees are based on course enrolments, so your posted fees may change as you adjust your fall term course enrolments. Fall term fees are due at the end of the second week of class.

Winter term tuition and fees will appear on your MyServiceHub account in October, and are due in late January. For details on deadlines, visit the Undergraduate Calendar.

I need help. Who can I contact about the tuition deposit?

Email for assistance.

Most offers have conditions. Review your Offer of Admission and be sure to meet the conditions by the deadline stated.

Current Ontario secondary school students

Your school will send your final grades and confirmation that you have achieved your Ontario Secondary School Diploma to the OUAC. Make sure your guidance office knows about your enrolment in all courses, including summer, night and/or online. Login to your OUAC application to review the grades input by your guidance office. See the "Current High School Information and Grades" section of your application.

Other Applicants

You’re responsible for the submission of all official documentation to meet your conditions. Confirm that your final official transcript(s) has been received in your ChooseTMU Applicant Portal.

Current TMU/Chang School students: We will access your final grades internally. Visit the official transcript submission page for more information on transcript submission.

You’ll know if you have met your conditions before us. We don’t review conditional offers until the summer months, after final grades and academic standings are released.
