Non-Payment of Student Fees

De-registration from Courses

Huron reserves the right to de-register students from courses for non-payment. Students will not be reinstated into courses until payment is made in full. Please note that there is no guarantee that you will be able re-enroll in a course once deregistration has occurred.


If your account balance is not paid after multiple email and phone communications, outstanding accounts will be referred to a Collections Agency. All personal and sensitive information that has been collected by Huron will be handled in accordance with applicable privacy and data protection laws.

Pre-Pay List 

Students who have a history of late payments or non-payment will be placed on a pre-pay list which will require them to pay in full in advance of registering for future sessions. You will be notified via email if you are required to pre-pay for the upcoming academic year.


Students will be notified of fines by the Residence Manager. Once notified, students will have 3 business days to submit payment before a late fee is applied and their student record is sealed.
