Choices and Fees
The ORPAS processing fee is $180 plus an institutional levy of $90 for each university selection, with the exception of McMaster University. Please see McMaster’s information for more details. All fees and levies are non-refundable. The amount submitted must correctly reflect the number of university selections made.
The institutional fees, collected by ORPAS but remitted to the universities, assist the universities in covering a portion of the costs associated with the admissions assessment. ORPAS fees are assessed by university, not by the number of programs selected at each university.
The total fee, including the ORPAS processing fee, is as follows (all amounts are in Canadian dollars):
Each transcript request costs $12, with some exceptions.
All payments for applications must be received by ORPAS no later than January 17, 2014.
All fees are non-refundable. Your application will not be forwarded to your university choice(s) until you submit full payment to the OUAC. Fees for withdrawn university choices are not refunded.
