Financing your education


Paying your fees

University of Waterloo tuition fees are paid to the university on a per-term basis. These fees cover the cost of your university courses, as well as other incidental fees, including health and dental plans, the UPass fee for Grand River Transit, etc. 

WWFC fees are used to cover the costs of classes, flight labs, briefings, and flights. WWFC fees can be paid by online bank payment, Interact/debit, cheque, etc.  Fees are paid in installments throughout the year. WWFC will provide a payment schedule and breakdown of anticipated flight costs during their intake interview. It’s important to note that the flight training portion of your education cannot be covered by OSAP. Learn more about WWFC’s local financial partnerships.
