Paying your student account fees

You can use a combination of payment methods to pay the balance on your student account.

NEW!

We cannot accept payment using:

  • Personal Cheque (unless it has been certified at your bank)

  • Credit Card

    • Significant fees would be charged to the university for offering this payment method, which would result in increased cost to the student.
    • The university is also committed to encouraging students to avoid using credit cards to finance their education. The interest charged on credit card balances would substantially increase the financial burden for students over the course of their studies.
  • Cash, debit, INTERAC or e-mail money transfer

  • Instalment payment plans

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.
