Students paying their fees from outside of Canada should use the GlobalPay for Students bank to bank transfer method.
Before making your payment, please review the cancellation and deferral policy for your program.
The preferred payment process for an international student to pay their student fees from outside of Canada is through Western Union's GlobalPay for Students. This option allows you to pay your student fees in the currency of your choice in an efficient and inexpensive manner.
Please note that this payment option is not available to students who would like to pay from a Canadian dollar bank account.
You will need your application ID number from the English Language Institute. When you submit an application form, we will email you your application ID number. If you did not receive one, please contact email@example.com
