Deregulated Fee Programs: Computer Science and Bioinformatics & Computational Biology

This section contains additional fees information for students enrolled in a Computer Science Specialist/Major or Bioinformatics & Computational Biology program

If you're enrolled in a deregulated fee program, you must pay deregulated academic fees until you complete all courses taken as a degree student in the Faculty of Arts & Science (which may include those taken after your subject POSt requirements have been completed). Enrolment in these subject POSts means that you will be charged the academic fees which are associated with the subject POSts.

This section contains additional fees information for students enrolled in a Computer Science Specialist/Major or Bioinformatics & Computational Biology program.

Program Fees vs Course Fees

The deregulated academic fee schedule for the 2015-2016 fall-winter sessions will be posted on the Student Accounts web site in early July 2015.

Your fall-winter session fees will be calculated by the method as described in the Step 6: Pay your fees section.

When will the deregulated fees be assessed? 

Students are charged deregulated academic fees as soon as the status of their enrolment in a subject POSt which is associated with that type of fee becomes ACTIVE. The normal entry point into a subject POSt is at the end of the session in which you complete your fourth full-course equivalent (FCE). If you are invited to, and enrol in, the computer science specialist/major or bioinformatics & computational biology program at a later point in your studies, you will be charged retroactively for all courses completed after the session in which you earned your fourth full-course equivalent.

Students admitted with transfer credits will be charged the deregulated academic fee immediately if 4.0 or more FCEs in transfer credits are granted. If transfer credits assessed are less than 4.0, the subject POSt fee will be assessed at the normal entry point into the program.

Fees assessments for 2015-16 fall/winter session

Proper fees assessment is dependent on your enrolment in an associated subject POSt. You should check your fees balance on ROSI after you have enrolled in the program and enrolled in courses. Whether you added courses and then enrolled in one of the subject POSts with higher fees, or you enrolled in the program and then added courses, check ROSI for your balance and pay this as soon as possible after you have enrolled in a subject POSt with higher fees.

Fee calculation in the summer session

Summer session course fees are calculated on a per-course basis at this rate: the academic fee each summer full-course equivalent (FCE) is 1/5 of the program fee for the following fall/winter session. 

If you are enrolled in 2015 summer session courses and enrol in a CSC specialist/major or bioinformatics & computational biology program for the first time in July 2015 or later, your summer fees will be reassessed and calculated at 1/5 of the 2015-2016 program fee for each course. Check ROSI for your adjusted balance after you have enrolled in the subject POSt—pay this amount as soon as possible, even if the amount does not agree with the amount you originally viewed on ROSI.

Withdrawing from CSC or BCB: students currently enrolled

If you decide to withdraw from a CSC specialist/major or bioinformatics & computational biology program, the calculation of deregulated academic fees for the "current" session will be completely reversed if the subject POSt withdrawal occurs by the appropriate deadline for the courses you're enrolled in:

  • 2015 Summer:
    • By May 25 if enrolled in at least one F/Y section code course in the 2015 summer session
    • By July 6 if enrolled in ONLY S section code courses in the 2015 summer session
  • 2015-2016 Fall/Winter:
    • By September 27, 2015 if enrolled in at least one F/Y section code course in the 2015-2016fall/winter sessions
    • By January 24, 2016 if enrolled in ONLY S section code courses in the 2016 winter term

Withdrawals after the dates specified above DO NOT result in fees adjustment.

Please note that you MUST NOT enrol in one of these subject POSts prior to June 30, 2015. If you do so, you will not be eligible to have retroactive charges for the 2015 summer session reversed if you subsequently decide to withdraw.

Withdrawing from CSC or BCB: students enrolling for the first time this year

If you are invited to, and enrol in, a CSC specialist/major or bioinformatics & computational biology program, you will be charged retroactively for all sessions in which you enrolled in courses beyond your fourth full-course equivalent. If you withdraw from the subject POSt, the deregulated fees for those sessions may be completely reversed if the withdrawal occurs by the appropriate deadline for the courses you're enrolled in:

  • If you enrol between July 2 and September 27, 2015, retroactive charges to sessions including the 2015 summer session will be completely reversed if you withdraw by December 9, 2015.
  • ‘Current’ session fees will be readjusted according to the schedule listed above in “Withdrawing from CSC or BCB: students currently enrolled”
Fee calculation example 
Stella earned 4.5 FCE’s in the 2014-15 fall/winter session. She completes another 1.0 FCE in the 2015 Summer session. She is invited to enrol in the computer science specialist on July 2. She enrols in the subject POSt on September 18. Her 2015 summer fees will be retroactively recalculated to reflect the deregulated academic fees. Her 2015-2016 fall/winter fees balance will also be adjusted.
 
Stella decides to withdraw from the computer science specialist on September 27. The 2015 summer and 2015-2016 fall/winter deregulated fees calculation will be reversed. If she had waited until October to withdraw from the subject POSt, only her 2015 summer fees would have been completely reversed. Had she waited until February to withdraw from the subject POSt, her summer and fall/winter fees would NOT be adjusted.
