Queen's moves to per-term billing

Queen’s University will introduce per-term billing for all students starting in the 2015-16 academic year.

The university will require students to pay their tuition fees and student assistance levy (SAL) for their fall 2015 courses on Sept. 1, 2015. Tuition fees and the SAL for winter 2016 courses will be due Jan. 10, 2016. Tuition and SAL for summer courses will remain the same. The session start date continues to be the due date for summer classes.

Residence fees, which include a mandatory meal plan, will also be split and billed per term. Half of the residence costs will be due on Sept. 30, 2015 and the remaining due on Jan. 31, 2016.

This change will give students and their families more flexibility when it comes to making their tuition and residence payments.

All student activity fees will continue to be billed in the fall term with a payment deadline of Sept. 30, 2015. UHIP fees for international students are also not being split; full payment is due Sept. 30.

“This change will give students and their families more flexibility when it comes to making their tuition and residence payments,” says Barbara Emorine, Associate University Registrar (Records and Services).

Even with the move to per-term billing, the alternate payment arrangement (APA) program will continue to assist students who cannot meet the payment deadlines of Sept. 1 and Jan. 10 but have a proven source of funding.

The APA allows students, upon approval, to defer payment of their tuition and SAL, without penalty, to Sept. 30, 2015 for fall fees and Jan. 31, 2016 for winter fees. Visit the University Registrar’s website for more information about who is eligible and how to apply for an APA.

The University Registrar has posted on its website answers to frequently asked questions about per term billing, including a section for graduate students and student receiving financial aid and/or awards.
