Promissory Note

The Promissory Note process allows you to have the registered status Fees Arranged without paying the entire balance owing. You can leave a balance owing on your account equal to the amount of financial aid you will be receiving during the term. The Promissory Note cannot be used to submit proof of payment in full; you must also have financial aid coming to you during the term.

The Promissory Note process on Quest is available from three days after fees are posted for the coming term until the end of the second month of each term.


If you try to access the Promissory Note before fees have been posted to your account, you will see an error message. Do not be alarmed--just try again once you see fees have been posted to your student account.

Paying your Tuition?

Your payment must arrive and be showing on your student account by the payment due date to avoid a late fee charge and account holds.

If you have an account at a bank in Canada, the best way to pay your student fees is by bank payment. Bank payments typically take 2-3 business days to appear on your student account.

If that isn’t possible, we can also accept a certified cheque, money order, or bank draft from a Canadian bank. We strongly recommend that this type of payment be sent by courier or via expresspost with tracking, well in advance of the due date.

To make an international tuition payment, use one of our approved international payment options.
