University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP)
Due by January 31st
Tuition if you have an APA for the Winter Term
What if you are unable to pay your Winter term Tuition and Student Assistance Levy (SAL) by the deadline?
To assist students who cannot meet the January 10th 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 without penalty to January 31st for the winter term.

IMPORTANT:

  • APA requests must be submitted no later than 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 showing on SOLUS, you may be subject to a $150 late fee and will not have access to add or swap courses in the following circumstances:
    • You miss the September 30th fee due date
    • You do NOT have a Winter APA and you miss the January 10th due date
    • You HAVE a Winter APA and you miss the January 31st tuition due date

Do NOT submit an APA request if:

  • Applied for OSAP for 2020-21 and have received an assessment
  • Notified Queen's of your Provincial/Territorial government assistance last year in 2019-20
  • Applied for US Government Loans for 2020-21
  • For full details on the APA process, visit http://www.queensu.ca/registrar/financials/HowToPay/APA

Do submit an APA request if you will be receiving:

  • Provincial / Territorial Government Assistance (Out of Province government assistance) – send a copy of your funding details to awards@queensu.ca if you did not notify Queen's of your Provincial/Territorial government assistance in 2019-20
  • Scholarships / Awards External to Queen’s – send your award letter to fees@queensu.ca
  • Third-Party funding (e.g. foreign government, corporation,band funding, etc.) – send your sponsorship letter to fees@queensu.ca
  • Extenuating Circumstances – if you have circumstances that will prevent you from paying your tuition by the due dates, you may request an APA. For example, if you can pay most of your fees by the deadline, but not all (e.g. receiving a final summer employment pay cheque after deadline), send a detailed request to fees@queensu.ca
What happens if I can't pay my Winter term tuition and SAL by 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 enrollment hold will be lifted.

What happens if I have an APA and miss the deferred winter tuition due date of 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 enrollment 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.
