Tuition if you have an APA for the Winter Term
What if you are unable to pay your Tuition and Student Assistance Levy (SAL) by the deadlines?
To assist students who cannot meet the payment deadlines, but have a proven source of funding, an Alternative Payment Arrangement (APA) Program has been developed. The APA allows students, upon approval, to defer payment of their tuition (in part or in full) without penalty, to September 30th for Fall and January 31st for Winter.
Tuition Fees and the Student Assistance Levy (SAL) are billed each term and are due at the University as follows: Fall: September 1st; Winter: January 10th; Registration is not complete unless fees are paid, or students have provided Queen's with an APA and it has been approved. Submit your APA request by August 15th for Fall Term and December 15th for Winter Term

IMPORTANT:

  • APA requests must be submitted no later than August 15th for Fall term and December 15th for Winter term. Requests received after the deadline will be processed on a best-efforts basis only.
  • APA requests must be sent from your @queensu.ca e-mail address and must include your student number.
  • If you have not paid the term's tuition and SAL by the due date (September 1st and January 10th without APA; September 30th and January 31st with APA, you may be subject to a $150 late fee and will not have access to add or swap courses in the following circumstances:):
    • You do NOT have a Fall APA and you miss the September 1st fee due date
    • You do NOT have a Fall APA and you miss the September 30th tuition due date
    • You do NOT have a Winter APA and you miss the January 10th due date
    • You do NOT have a Fall APA and you miss the January 30th tuition due date

Do NOT submit an APA request if:

  • You have received your OSAP assessment for the 2016-2017 Academic Year
  • You have received Provincial/Territorial Government Assistance (Out of Province) while attending Queen's last year (2015-16).
  • You have applied for US Government Loans for the 2016-2017 Academic Year
  • You are a graduate student in the Fall Term, or on a PPL in the Winter term

Do submit an APA request if you will be receiving:

  • Provincial / Territorial Government Assistance (Out of Province)* Send a copy of your funding assessment (Notice of Assessment) to awards@queensu.ca by August 15th, 2016 to receive an APA for Fall term and December 15th, 2016 for Winter term.

          * for 2016-17 academic year, but did not receive for 2015-16 at Queen's.

  • Scholarships / Awards External to Queen's - Send your award letter to fees@queensu.ca by August 15th, 2016 (Fall) or December 15th, 2016 (Winter) to receive an APA.
  • Third-party funding (e.g. foreign government, corporation, band funding, etc.) - Send your sponsorship letter to fees@queensu.ca by August 15th, 2016 (Fall) or December 15th, 2016 (Winter). For information on what the letter needs to include, see Pay by Funding Agency.
  • Extenuating Circumstances - If you have circumstances that will prevent you from paying your Fall Tuition by September 1st, 2016 or Winter tuition by January 10th, 2017, you may request an APA. For example, if you can pay most of your fees by the deadline, but not all (e.g. receiving final summer employment pay cheque after deadline). Provide details of your circumstance and send to fees@queensu.ca by August 15th, 2016 (Fall) or December 15th, 2016 (Winter).
What happens if I can't pay my tuition and SAL by September 1st (or January 10th) and have not been granted an Alternative Payment Arrangement?
  • You will not have access to add or swap your courses; and,
  • A Late Fee charge of $150 may be applied to your account

As soon as Queen's receives payment for the outstanding amount or is provided a proven source of funding (e.g. Notice of Assessment - out of province government assistance), the enrolment hold will be lifted.

What happens if I have an APA and miss the deferred tuition due date of September 30th (or January 31st)?
  • You will not have access to add or swap your courses; and,
  • A Late Fee charge of $150 may be applied to your account

As soon as Queen's receives payment for the outstanding amount or is provided a proven source of funding, the enrolment hold will be lifted.

Changes in Fee Assessment
While every effort is made to avoid errors in fee assessment, should an error occur, it will be corrected and every effort will be made to attempt to notify affected students. However, lack of notification does not exempt a student from paying the appropriate fee.
