Compulsory Fees

Important notice about fees

Effective May 1, 2020, all incidental fees will be compulsory for students on the Guelph campus; this includes student organization fees and other University fees. Please refer to the lists of compulsory fee descriptions below.

In the Fall 2019 and Winter 2020 semesters, students had the choice of opting out of certain fees through the provincial government's Student Choice Initiative. However, the Ontario Divisional Court ruled against the Student Choice Initiative on November 19, 2019. The provincial government appealed the decision, but the appeal was dismissed in August, 2021.

All students are required to pay compulsory fees every academic semester. These fees are included in your bill on WebAdvisor and must be paid by the semester payment deadline.
