How and When to Pay Fees
To complete registration, you’ll need to pay your fees ahead of your Faculty’s registration deadline. You may have the option of deferring your fee payment if you’ll be receiving government financial aid or other financial assistance. Or, you can arrange to make partial payments, although this will involve a service charge. If you’re planning to live in residence and/or use a meal plan, you’ll need to pay for these over two installments, or arrange for partial payments with a service charge. Residence and meal-plan payments cannot be deferred.
When: Registration Deadlines
Your registration deadline is dependent upon your Faculty and/or program. You will need to pay your tuition, incidental and ancillary fees by that date, or arrange for a payment deferral if you’ll be receiving OSAP or other government financial aid. Be sure to plan enough time for your bank to transfer the funds to the University, as this can sometimes take between three to five business days, and even longer for international payments.
How: Invoices, Payments and Deferrals
Your invoices for fees, residence and meal plans are available online through ACORN, the student online information service.Once you’ve verified your registration deadline and accessed your invoice, you can make a full payment, arrange for partial payments, or request a fee deferral.
Payments must be made through your financial institution, via a bank machine, teller, online or by telephone. No payments are accepted on campus. Please note that there are additional fees associated with making payments by credit card.
If you’ll be making a payment from outside Canada, you can use Western Union’s GlobalPay. Find more information on the Student Accounts website. Be sure to allow enough time for the transfer of funds to be processed.
If you’ve qualified for OSAP or other financial aid, you can apply to defer your fee payment (in advance) online, to allow time for your financing to be transferred over.
Residence and meal-plan fees are paid over two installments during the academic year. While these may not be deferred, it’s possible to arrange for partial payments, along with service charges.
