Payment and Important Dates

We’re here to guide you with all that has to do with payments!

As you will discover, there are various methods that can be used to submit a payment. These payments are required to be paid in full by the deadlines and it is the responsibility of the student to understand and familiarize themselves with these dates. Take the time to explore this page and you’ll be worry-free of missing an important date.

Registrations and Deposits

A student who completes and submits a Registration Form or completes Online Registration or authorizes registration through e-mail correspondence is considered to have registered at Algoma University and is liable for payment in full of all tuition and related fees associated with that registration.

  • Upon registration, domestic students are required to pay a $200 non-refundable deposit per term ($100 for Spring).
  • Students in receipt of OSAP funding that have completed their aid application in full by the fee deferral deadline may defer their deposit requirements according to OSAP deferral deadlines. 
  • International students currently living and studying in Canada, as well as exchange or sponsored students, are required to pay a non-refundable $1,000 deposit.
  • International students applying from overseas are required to pay the deposit outlined in their Algoma University ‘Letter of Admission’ (LOA).

Deregistration

Algoma University reserves the right to deregister students from courses for non-payment; however, non-payment does not constitute proper withdrawal from courses. In the event of deregistration, the student will remain financially responsible for all tuition and related fees. Non-payment of fees will also result in prohibited registration for future courses, inability to obtain statements of academic standing, transcript requests, and/or other matters relating to academic progress until all outstanding fees have been paid in full.

Domestic Students
  • Bank Account Payment

Through your preferred bank account, you can use the “Pay Bills” feature and add Algoma University as a “payee” to arrange payment. Your nine-digit Algoma U student identification number will act as your account number for this option. You can obtain your student identification number through the Student Portal or on your Letter of Admission (LOA).

  • Online Payment – Credit Card Payment

You can pay online through the Student Portal by selecting ‘Make Payment’ under the Financial section. Your fee statement will be available and you will be able to pay with a Visa, MasterCard, or American Express credit card.
