Paying when you have Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries

To align with Queen’s term-based tuition due dates, all Queen’s awards administered by the Student Awards Office for undergraduate and professional programs (e.g. Law / Medicine) and granted at the start of each academic year will be paid in two equal payments and applied to your Queen’s SOLUS Student Account for fall and winter term.  This includes all Admission awards, renewable, and upper year awards.  The first installment of your award payment will be applied to your SOLUS Student Account late August, and your second installment will be applied to your SOLUS Student Account early-December.  

Mid August - Check your SOLUS Student Centre – View Financial Aid, to see the Disbursement Dates in which your award will be posted to your SOLUS Student Account.

For all awards administered by the Student Awards Office – award payments will be held in your SOLUS student account to be applied to all current and future due university charges (e.g. Fall term tuition and student activity fees, Fall term Residence, Winter Term Tuition, and Winter term residence).

For awards administered by the School of Graduate Studies – please review the terms of your award offer(s) for payment details and check your SOLUS Student Centre – View Financial Aid for further information.

Any scholarships, bursaries and awards that are granted by external agencies but administered by Queen’s will be credited to your student account as soon as the external agency provides Queen’s with the funds. Check your SOLUS Student Centre – View Financial Aid to verify if the funds have been received and when they will be posted to your student account. If you are receiving a non-Queen’s scholarship or award (external to Queen’s University) that you will use to pay tuition, fees,and/or residence charges, and you are unsure the funds will be available by the applicable due date, you must submit an Alternative Payment Arrangement (APA) request. Information and deadlines for submitting an APA is available on our APA information page
Paying with your OSAP
At the time full-time enrolment is confirmed, Queen's will identify the amount of your OSAP to be remitted to Queen's. The amount of your OSAP to be remitted to Queen's will not exceed the value of your term tuition and fees, unless you have a balance outstanding from a previous academic term. Any remaining OSAP will be deposited to your personal bank account. Log on to your OSAP account at and view your Funding Summary for details of what is being remitted to Queen's. Your funding will take a few days after the 'Estimated Date' on your OSAP Funding Summary to be received. You can also review your Student Fee Statement on Solus to verify Queen's has received your OSAP payment.
Please monitor your SOLUS student account to verify your OSAP has been received by Queen's and deposited in your account before making any additional online payments by your tuition due date.
Please note that all Queen's awards administered by the Student Awards Office (e.g. UGRD awards, JD/MD awards) will be reported to OSAP by Queen's.  You are NOT required to report these awards on your OSAP application. 
  • Award payments will be held in your student account to be applied to all current and future due charges for the academic year
  • Please refer to the Registrar's website for information about how and when award refunds will be refunded:( )
