You will be able to register without paying the required minimum-amount by filling out a “Request to Register without Payment” form (found at this link under “General Forms”: http://www.sgs.utoronto.ca/informationfor/ students/inform/stuforms.htm). This means that interest will not be as- sessed on any outstanding fall-term fees until early-May.
