Making a Payment From a Bank Outside Canada

Select your preferred payment option below or get a quote from both, then make your choice.

  • University of Waterloo does not encourage or support sending your international payment using a third-party payment service other than one of our authorized international payment options shown above. If you choose to use another payment service, you are responsible for any late fees that result from delays in the arrival of the payment and we cannot assist you in tracking the payment. 

  • Do not send funding intended for personal living expenses to your student account. All international payments sent to your student account will be held to be applied to future student account charges, or refunded internationally to the original bank account.                 

Paying your Tuition?

If you have an account at a bank in Canada, the best way to pay your student fees is by bank payment.  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 one of our approved international payment options. These services are convenient, cheaper than a traditional wire transfer, and post 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.
