Information on methods of payment

1. Tuition payment deadlines

There are two payment deadlines for Domestic Students:

April 22, 2014

Full fees must be paid to avoid being deregistered from all courses and removed from all waitlists. This will be the only fee deadline that will result in de-registration for non-payment of fees.  Students must ensure that they drop courses that they do not intend to keep prior to the fee payment deadline or they will be responsible to pay outstanding fees for these courses in order to avoid de-registration.

Please note: Students will not be able to add or drop any courses on April 22, 23 and 24*.

* The system reopens at 2000 hours on April 24 for students who were not deregistered for non-payment of fees to continue to add or drop courses.  Registration and waitlisting opens at 1600 hours on April 25 for students who were deregistered for non-payment of fees to continue to add and drop courses.

May 20, 2014

Payments must be received by no later than 4 pm on May 20, 2014.  Students who have outstanding fees will not be de-registered from all or some of their courses.  Students with outstanding fees after this time will be charged a penalty of $25.00 per registered course and will have a registration activity hold placed on their account. 

Please note:  Payments made via on-line banking may take several days to be received.  On May 20 (prior to 4 p.m.), students may pay by cash, cheque or Interac in-person at the Cashier's Office at the New Westminster campus or the Registrar's Office at the David Lam campus.
