Can I opt out of the fees?

No. The Print & Copy fees are aligned with statistics based on program specific usage for the central OCAD U Print & Copy Service.  By pre-activating student print and copy accounts with credits that align with program specific usage students will be ready to print or copy without having to visit the cashier. Pre-paid accounts provide assurance that funds will be in student accounts when they require use of the service to complete assignments and projects throughout the year.

Fee reversals

Fees are only reversed or adjusted if you have withdrawn from OCAD U or changed majors and the Copy & Print Fees are still on your account.  To request a fee reversal, please contact the Manager, Copy & Print Services, Pat Navarro at 416-977-6000 Ext. 203 or 

Reversals must be requested in the semester that fees are charged. We accept requests for reversals during the active semester and process requests based on deadlines for withdrawal or change of programs posted at:

OCAD U Dates & Deadlines

No Reversal Requests can be approved/denied and processed after the last business day in January due to student T2202a Tax forms being generated.

If a fee reversal is approved, only the unused portion of your fee will be reversed.

Please note: All active Print & Copy accounts with a positive balance will remain available even after graduation.
