Change of Status
After presenting the necessary documents, the student will need to monitor his/her student account online (e.g., using Mosaic). It may show changes in fees, depending on when the status change occurred. Students may get more information about fees and deadlines at the Student Accounts and Cashiers (Gilmour Hall, Room 209).
There will be no changes to a student's current student status until the Office of the Registrar determines that the student is entitled for it.
Please note that the policies and procedures regarding this matter are enforced in Ontario by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU). For any questions regarding this matter or related to eligibility, contact MTCU directly:

Once you become a permanent resident of Canada and reside in Ontario, you will be eligible for the provincial health insurance (OHIP). It takes approximately 3 months for an OHIP card to be issued. We strongly recommend that international students keep their UHIP coverage and that they cancel it only after receiving the OHIP card. UHIP can be extended or cancelled at ISS (Gilmour Hall, Room 110) with the presentation of an OHIP card and another piece of identification, preferably the student card.
UHIP refunds have deadlines based on the time students obtain and present their permanent resident documents to ISS. Please refer to the following deadlines:
|Elibility to get a UHIP refund||Deadline|
|You have got your permanent resident status AND now you have health coverage by OHIP||July 31st|
|You need a refund for any other reason (e.g., you are leaving the country)||February 28th|
Please contact ISS if you have any questions or concerns.
