How to become "Fees Arranged"

"Fees Arranged" means that you

  • have shown us how you intend to cover your fees for the term

  • have made a commitment to pay all the fees charged to your student account, even if financial aid is denied or turns out to be less than you expected

  • have become a fully registered student for the term

  • will receive all the financial aid you're eligible for during the term

Fees are charged one term at a time and you must become Fees Arranged each term.

There are two ways to become "Fees Arranged"

1. Pay the entire Term Balance now

  • do not deduct any Anticipated Aid
  • use one of our acceptable payment options
  • any financial aid and awards you have qualified for will be refunded to you during the term.

2. Pay all or part of your Term Balance later by using the Promissory Note process

Fee Changes

If you’re planning to

  • add or drop courses,
  • change your residence or meal plan, or
  • change your program or status,

...you still need pay the entire balance owing or have enough financial aid to cover all the fees that have been posted on your student account by the due date. If more fees are posted after the due date, you can pay them as they are added. If you have overpaid your account, you will be refunded later in the term.

Office closed for holiday event

Finance, including Student Financial Services, will be closed on Monday, December 17 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. for a special holiday event. If students have questions during that time, please e-mail sfs@uwaterloo.ca or call ext. 38466.

Paying your Tuition?

The quickest and cheapest way to make a domestic bank payment is with an online banking bill payment using your student number.  If that isn’t possible, we can also accept a certified cheque, money order, or bank draft from a Canadian bank.

To make an international tuition payment, use our GlobalPay for Students service.  The service is convenient, cheaper than a traditional wire transfer, and posts quickly to your student account.  You can also pay in the currency of your choice and get a competitive exchange rate.

Don’t forget to check the date tuition is due to avoid late fees and account holds.
