Students can refer to our Fee Schedule for tuition/residence fees for the current academic year, and due dates. Tuition/residence fees can be paid in one installment or two.

Students with a course load of 60% (3 full courses) or more are eligible to apply for full-time OSAP funding. Students should apply online at http://osap.gov.on.ca. OSAP enquiries should be directed to the Hive or email@example.com. For more information on OSAP please visit Brescia’s OSAP page.
Qualified OSAP students will be allowed to defer their fee payment until their OSAP funding is released. To qualify you must meet ALL of the following conditions:
- Applied for OSAP by June 30th and submitted to Brescia all outstanding OSAP paperwork no later than the first Friday in July and;
- Selected the option that allows “the Ministry may use a portion of my OSAP funding to pay, on my behalf, my tuition and compulsory fees directly to my school” a question directly on the OSAP application and;
- Verified that you will be receiving OSAP funding and that your September disbursement of OSAP is enough to cover your 1st installment of fees. If it is not you will need to pay the difference by the August deadline.
Before making any course changes, OSAP students are strongly recommended to contact Financial Aid at Brescia to determine the financial implications, if any.
Your “Orientation Pass Fee” is your ticket to all the O-Week activities. These activities income access to concerts, games and other events on campus. This Orientation Pass fee can be found in your tuition fee bill through your Brescia Student Finances Account. If you’d like to choose not to participate in Orientation Week, you can receive a refund of this fee by completing the Opt-out form at http://westernusc.ca/o-pass-opt-out/ anytime between July 1st, 2015 and August 15th, 2015.
If you are new to Brescia this September and have not been charged an “Orientation Pass Fee” on your student account, you can opt-in to have this fee added to your student account. By completing the opt-in form you will be granted access to Brescia’s Orientation Week. Please see the below chart for further information about your o-pass. New students to Brescia who enrolled in courses before August 13th, would have had their O-Pass fee included in their Tuition Fee amount on their student account and will not be required to Opt-in.
Please see the “Opt-In” form page for details.
USC Health and Dental Plan Opt-Out
Full Time students who are covered under an equivalent extended benefit health care plan (in addition to your standard provincial coverage) may choose to “opt-out” of the USC plan. This typically applies to students who have previous and continuing health insurance coverage provided by a parent or guardian. If you choose to opt-out, the fee will be reimbursed and credited to your Brescia Student Finances Account in late October. To opt-out of these plans, please visit the studentbenefits.ca website and select University Student’ Council of Western University. Opt-outs can be completed on or before September 28th, 2015.
