How and when to pay your tuition and fees

Find out how to pay your tuition and fees at Georgian College and the payment deadlines for upcoming semesters.

Understand your fees

Deposit

You are required to pay a tuition deposit once per academic year. Paying your deposit secures your seat in your program and makes you eligible to register for classes*.

*Starting fall 2021, international students must pay full tuition fees before registration. 

Tuition

Tuition covers the fees representing your contribution towards the operating and capital costs of the academic program delivery and general overhead for the institution. Tuition is the cost associated with delivering programs to students. Types of tuition you may see in your Banner account balance include:

  • FT Tuition: Indicates full-time tuition amount
  • PT Tuition: Indicates part-time tuition amount
  • OL Tuition: Indicates overload exceeding full-time status; cost per course fees apply

Ancillary fees

Ancillary fees are fees charged over and above the cost of tuition, which support services and activities distinct from academic programming for the institution.

Find out more about your ancillary fees.

Pay your tuition deposit

You are required to pay a non-refundable tuition deposit once per academic year. The fall semester is the start of a new academic year. Students in subsequent terms are not required to pay a deposit, though you must reserve your seat in Banner.

  • Starting a new program at Georgian? A deposit is required for your first academic semester of classes. If you change to a different program, you are also required to pay a deposit for your first semester of the new program regardless of if you have paid a deposit in a previous term or not.
  • Are you a continuing student? A deposit is required for your first academic semester of classes in the new academic year.

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.

Review additional information for recipients of OSAP and other financial aid programs, or sponsored students.

How do I pay my fees?

Review methods of payment outlined below to pay your full tuition fees at Georgian College.

Methods of payment

Credit card payments (deposit only)

Your minimum non-refundable tuition deposit may be paid by credit card.

You can make your tuition deposit payment from your Banner account under the fee payment section. For the balance of your fees, you can pay through your financial institution.

Note: Georgian is unable to accept full fee payments by credit card or personal/company cheque. See bank payment information to follow.

Canadian bank payments

Bank payments can be made via telephone, online banking, or in person at your branch.

  • Add payee: Georgian College TUITION
  • Account number: Nine-digit student ID number
  • Payments made at the bank on the day of the deadline will be considered on time.
  • Please allow three business days for your payment to be received by Georgian College.

Please note: Only the “Georgian College TUITION” option will deposit funds to pay your fees. The selection of “Georgian College ONEcard” is strictly for purchasing goods and services at any of the ONEcard partnered locations.

International payments

Georgian College has partnered with Flywire to make international tuition payments easier for international students. Domestic students are also welcome to use Flywire.

With Flywire, you are offered excellent foreign exchange rates, allowing you to pay in your home currency (in most cases) and save a significant amount of money, as compared to traditional banks. In addition, the posting of the payment into your Georgian College account will be faster, and you will be notified via email when it is received.

Information for students receiving OSAP or other funding

All students on OSAP or other financial aid programs are required to pay the minimum non-refundable deposit ($250) in order to register for courses. You will not receive your OSAP funding until you have paid at least the minimum tuition deposit and commenced classes.

Apply for OSAP at least eight weeks prior to the start of your academic year to ensure payments are received prior to the deadline. Funds must be received from OSAP by the eleventh day of the term. A $150 late fee will be added to domestic students’ accounts for any balance outstanding beyond the eleventh day.

Please note, if you select the “don’t pay fees on my behalf” box on your OSAP application, it is your responsibility to pay your tuition by the eleventh day of the term. Special consideration may be given to those who have completed all OSAP documentation at least eight weeks prior to the term start and for reasons beyond their control if they do not receive their funding by day 11.

If you are a student sponsored by a government agency, Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), employer or any organization providing fees directly to Georgian, you must provide a supporting letter prior to the fee deadline. The letter must include:

  • explanation of the sponsorship
  • amount sponsored
  • how and when fees will be paid to Georgian
  • duration of the sponsorship

Once this letter is received, we will update your records and you can then register into courses. You will not be charged a late fee, provided the full fees are covered by your sponsor.
