Methods of payment


Georgian is unable to accept fee payments by credit card or personal/company cheque. Your minimum non-refundable deposit of $250, effective Fall 2019, ($2500 for international students) may be paid by credit card. For the balance of your fees you can pay through your financial institution.

Bank payment

This includes telephone and online banking or in person at your branch. The payee is “Georgian College TUITION” and your account number is your nine-digit student number. Payments made at the bank on the day of the deadline  will be considered to be on time.

By converting Aeroplan™ miles

Students, family members, friends and donors can direct their Aeroplan™ miles toward tuition at Georgian. For every 35,000 Aeroplan Miles, a $250 credit can be transferred to Georgian to cover tuition. Visit higheredpoints.com for information on how to redeem Aeroplan miles and transfer them to a specific Georgian account. Georgian receives the transfer the same way other bank transfers are received. The transfer appears as a “non-refundable” cash deposit visible in the student’s account within two to three business days. Fees must be received by deadlines, please check important dates for fee payment deadlines.

NOTE: Aeroplan miles can be converted through the above online process only, not in person at the front counter or via other payment methods.

When do I need to pay a tuition deposit?

Students are required to pay a deposit once per academic year. This means all students pay a deposit in the fall term (even if a deposit was paid in the previous term.) If you were not here in the fall, you will be required to pay a deposit in the winter term. If you were not here in the fall or winter, you will be required to pay a deposit in the summer term.

Students who change to a different program are also required to pay a deposit for their first semester of the new program regardless of if they have paid a deposit in a previous term or not.

Effective Fall 2019, the deposit amount is $250 for domestic students and $2,500 for international students. This is a non-refundable deposit toward your tuition. International students, please refer to tuition policy for calculation of non-refundable amount.

If your deposit payment is not received by the deadline, your place in the program may be forfeited or given to another student on the waiting list. Georgian reserves the right to refuse payments made after the deadline if the program is full.

Deposits can be paid by credit card. If you choose to pay the deposit, you will be able to register into your courses and agree to pay the balance of your fees by the second day of the term.

In-person payments are not accepted on the first and second days of each term. You may pay directly through your bank on those days. The balance of your fees or full fee payment cannot be paid by credit card or personal/company cheque.

What happens if I need to withdraw? 

In order to receive a refund of any fees or to have outstanding fees adjusted if fees have not been paid in full, you must withdraw by submitting a withdrawal formto the Office of the Registrar by the 10th day of classes. Check important dates for withdrawal deadlines.

International applicants who provide proof of a refused study visa/permit are eligible for a full refund.

Withdrawals must be in writing, with a signature. You are not considered officially withdrawn if you simply do not attend class or if you verbally notify your teacher, registration staff, counsellors or college staff.

If withdrawal form is received after the first 10 days of the term or is not received at all, you will be responsible for full tuition fees for that term.

The deposit amount cannot be reduced. The deposit can be paid by credit card to help offset financial costs. We cannot guarantee a seat in the program unless the deposit is paid by the deadline. Full fees are due by the eleventh day of the term.
