The Em ployer Tuition Deferral Plan is designed for students who receive tuition reimbursement from their employers. Since employer reimbursement is generally issued at the end of the term, this option provides an extended payment due date.

How much does it cost?
A $125 fee covers autumn, winter and spring (fall & spring semesters for Law). Students may apply on a term-by-term basis at $50 per term. Both options are interest free.
