What are Ancillary Fees?

The University of Toronto charges a number of ancillary fees to students for cost recovery and administrative purposes. These charges are referred to as “Ancillary Fees”.

Examples of ancillary fees include:

  • field trip costs;
  • personal equipment that becomes the possession of a student (such as a lab coat, clickers, or dissection kit); and
  • administrative fees like transcript fees or library fines.
  • digital learning materials*

These charges are associated with course-related activities, or for services that students can choose to access (often through their registrar’s office). This page provides information and links concerning ancillary fees and the applicable policies, regulations, and relevant approval processes at the University of Toronto.

*See the Provostial Guidelines on Digital Learning Materials for more information.
