Terms and Conditions
As a condition of submitting your application to CIE, you must read and agree to the following:
Opportunities to study abroad through CIE are awarded on a competitive basis. Meeting the minimum requirements for eligibility does not guarantee that you will be nominated. Nomination offers are made on the condition that you maintain a minimum B- average (or higher, depending on the institution(s) you select) and are a student in good academic standing prior to your departure.
The host institution has the right to reject any applicant nominated by CIE. CIE will access your U of T academic records on ROSI throughout the application, nomination and exchange process.
The courses you select may not be available once you arrive at the host institution. The University of Toronto is not responsible for host institution course changes or cancellations. It is your responsibility to discuss course changes with your program counsellor and obtain appropriate academic approvals.
As an exchange program participant, you will be required to pay your regular full-time tuition and incidental fees to the University of Toronto, as appropriate to your program of study and citizenship status, regardless of the number of course credits taken while on exchange. If you are participating in a study abroad program, you will be required to pay the fees designated by that program — if you are participating in the self-designed program, these fees will include the $175 application fee paid to the University of Toronto, plus any fees set by the host institution.
You may be required to incur certain incidental expenses by the host institution and/ or host country, such as sports fees, heath insurance, etc. These expenses are your responsibility. Student support services at the host institution may not be equivalent to those available at the University of Toronto.
These programs take place in other countries and may therefore involve significant risks such as travel to and from and living in a foreign country under different conditions of public or private health, sanitation, communication, infrastructure, politics and environment. You will be required to attend a pre-departure orientation session and sign a waiver prior to participating in any exchange or study abroad program.
CIE reserves the right to suspend any of its programs should Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada issue a travel warning advising Canadians against travelling to a particular location.
CIE will communicate with you only through your UTOR email address. You are responsible for checking this account regularly — prior to and during the application process, as well as throughout your period abroad. Failure to notice CIE e-mails sent to you during the application process may jeopardize your chances of being nominated to the universities indicated on your application form. Failure to respond to CIE e-mails sent to you during your period abroad, especially during emergencies, may result in the annulment of your exchange.
