What is a Tuition Fee Deferral?
A deferral is a postponement in the payment of tuition fees for a set amount of time.
Tuition Fee Deferrals at the University of Manitoba:
The UM offers tuition fee deferrals prior to most tuition fee deadlines (September, January & May) when students have unforseen delays in receiving their government student loans (applying for a loan late - less than two months before school staring - is NOT an unforseen delay). Deferrals are only for students with current school year Government student loans. No other payment extensions/plans are available through the Financial Aid & Awards Office.
To avoid late fees and possible deregistration from future term courses, you will need to provide the Financial Aid & Awards Office (prior to the fee deadline):
Failure to provide these things, &/or not be registered to the course load that your Notice of Assistance/Assessment indicates is basis for deferral denial.

ONTARIO (OSAP) STUDENTS: Your loan document is sent directly to the Financial Aid & Awards Office and when we receive it, we automatically defer your tuition (if you are registered in the course load indicated on your document and within the same study dates) and keep the document until you come in to process it. However, if we have not received your loan document in our office by the tuition fee deadline, you will not be deferred.
OUT OF PROVINCE STUDENTS: Bring your loan documents to the Financial Aid & Award Office for one of the staff to process. Your tuition will then be deferred and no late charges will be added as long as it is processed before the tuition fee deadline. If you have not received your loan document by the tuition fee deadline, you will need to provide proof of funding in the form of an official Notice of Assistance/Assessment from your province that confirms your name, current study period dates, gauranteed funding amount and it must be money that is available as of the tuition fee deadline, not future amounts. Also, you must be registered in the course load that you applied for your loan for or we will not defer tuition.
