Late Payment of Student Fees

Any student with a balance owing after four weeks past a payment due date will be in breach of the NOSM Code of Student Conduct, section 1.3 Responsibility, and will have this breach recorded on his or her Medical Student Performance Record.

The host universities, Lakehead and Laurentian, reserve the right to cancel a student’s registration if the required fees are not paid according to the payment deadline dates. Students will not have access to final grades, official transcripts, and degree certificates until all money owing is paid.

 

Refund Schedule

At registration, a total of fees is calculated and charged to your student account. Refunds are based on total fees charged, not on the amount that has been paid. Compulsory ancillary and incidental fees are non-refundable once the academic year has begun. In the case of withdrawal, the amount credited to your student account will be based on the following schedule:

   

Withdrawal Date Percentage Refund
On or before September 22, 2017  100%
September 23 to November 24, 2017 75%
November 25 to January 19, 2018 50%
January 20, 2018 to March 2, 2018 25%

Estimated Yearly Costs and Available Funding

The estimated total cost for the first year of schooling at the Northern Ontario School of Medicine for 2017/2018 for a single learner, with no dependents, is approximately $55,500 (*subject to change). This total includes tuition, ancillary fees, books, equipment, etc. plus living expenses.

We know that living expenses can be expensive. The following mechanisms are currently in place to minimize the impact of direct educational expenses for NOSM learners:

  • In first and second year, accommodations and travel reimbursements are provided for modules that are completed outside of the learners’ home campus.
  • The third year of medical education at NOSM is a comprehensive community clerkship (CCC) in a community outside Sudbury and Thunder Bay. Learners may be eligible for reimbursement for up to $9,000 (*subject to change) through NOSM on behalf of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care fund, in recognition of the costs incurred during their time at a new community.
  • Fourth year at NOSM is a clerkship which includes core rotations at the hospitals in Sudbury or Thunder Bay and electives (as required). Learners may be eligible to participate in the Clerkship Stipend Program (Known publically as the Final Year Medical Student Bursary Program-FYMB) through NOSM on behalf of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care which provides $9,000 (provided in quarterly payments of $2,250 *subject to change) stipend for their final year of medical school. Information on this program will be provided when you enter your final year.

Student Union/Association Health Plan

As a registered undergraduate Medical Doctor Program full-time student at either Lakehead University or Laurentian University, you have paid for, and are entitled to, all of the services that any full-time undergraduate student enjoys as a member of the university student union/association. Part of the fees you have paid include charges that go toward the student union/association sponsored Health Plan. Upon review of the health plan you may find that you have comparable coverage already in place. If this is the case and you meet all of the conditions, you may elect to waive the health plan coverage at the university campus at which you are registered.

To do this, you must contact the student union/association at the university so that you may complete an Opt-out Form. This will result in a refund of fees you have paid in support of the health plan. The deadline date to Opt-out of the Health Plan is late September. Please check with the campus student union/association for Final Opt-out Date information.

You are advised to contact the Lakehead University Student Union at 807-343-8259, or the Laurentian University Students’ General Association at 705-675-1151 ext.1064 directly for more information on the Health Plan and other services they provide.
