Incoming Undergraduate Students

[volleyball players]August 2013 Checklist

Now is the time you will prepare for your arrival in Kingston and on the Queen’s campus.

The most important thing you must do this month is to organize your finances to pay your tuition and Student Assistance Levy before September 1, 2013.

This is important: As of September 2, 2013, if you have not paid your tuition and Student Assistance Levy OR completed the Alternative Payment Arrangement form:

  • a late payment charge of $150 will be applied to your account,
  • you will not be able to have your student card validated, and
  • you will not have access to Open Enrollment to add, drop, or swap your courses.

Remember that payments take 2-3 business days to appear in your SOLUS Account once they have been made at your bank. Be sure to leave enough time for this when you make your payment

Banking Information:

Do we have your banking information? You can update your information in the SOLUS Student Centerin the Finances section. Your banking information permits Queen’s to process awards and refunds directly into your bank account.


Queen’s will not deduct payments directly from your bank account. You must make payments using one of the options listed on page 21 of your Guide to Registration and Fees. Any awards will be deposited to your student account, not your bank account.

Challenges meeting the September 1 tuition and Student Assistance Levy deadline?

Students who cannot pay tuition and the SAL in full by September 1 because they are receiving support from specific sources may complete the registration process by confirming evidence of that support, using an Alternative Payment Arrangement form, due by August 15. 


Examples of support from specific sources are:

  • Government student financial assistance
  • Third party funding (native bands, embassies, companies)
  • Scholarships and/or awards external to Queen's

This form, upon approval, will allow you to defer all or part payment of  tuition and Student Assistance Levy amount until September 30.


Please note that you will not be able to participate in Open Enrollment if you have either not paid your tuition and Student Assistance Levy by September 1 or not completed an Alternative Payment Arrangement form, available at by August 15.

Are you a student with a disability?

If you are a student with a disability, for which you need academic accommodations, you will need to register with the Disability Services Office.  Please complete the Pre-registration for Intake Appointment form and submit it along with documentation of your disability to our office.  You will be contacted by our office to arrange an appointment.


Please note: Students with learning disabilities or attention deficit hyperactivity disorders will need to send in updated psycho-educational assessments well in advance to ensure that the documentation is reviewed by our Advisors prior to arranging an appointment.


For more information on documentation requirements for these disabilities and others please visit our website

As soon as possible, and definitely before you get here.
Getting Ready for September

Step 2 of the Registration process–Payment of Tuition and Student Assistance Levy:

Have you made arrangements to pay your tuition and Student Assistance Levy by September 1?


Tuition and the Student Assistance Levy as shown on your Account Summary in the SOLUS Student Center, less any awards or deferrals, will need to be paid before September 1.  The balance of fees (student activity fees, residence fees) is due on September 30th. In August you absolutely must establish your plan to pay your tuition and Student Assistance Levy.


More information about understanding your fees and how to pay your fees is available in the Guide to Registration and Fees (mailed in June) on page 19.
