Step 2: Payment of Tuition and Student Assistance Levy (SAL)
Tuition and the Student Assistance Levy will be applied to your account within 24 hours of your courses being selected and/or loaded and are due in full by September 30th for Fall Term and January 10th for Winter Term. To see how much you owe, log on to the SOLUS Student Centre via the MyQueen’sU Portal. Under the 'Account Summary' click on ’CHARGES DUE BY DUE DATE’.
Challenges meeting the Tuition and Student Assistance Levy (SAL) deadline for Winter term?

To assist students who cannot meet the January 10th payment deadline for winter term, 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 winter term fees.

An APA request must be submitted no later than December 15th for winter term. APA requests must be sent from your email address and must include your student number.

Submit an APA request if you will be receiving the following sources of funding that prevent you from paying your Winter tuition by January 10th.
  • Provincial / Territorial Government Assistance (Out of Province government assistance) – send a copy of your Provincial/Territorial government student aid Funding Details to if you did not notify Queen's of your Provincial/Territorial government assistance last year
  • Scholarships / Awards External to Queen’s – send your award letter to:
  • Third-party funding (e.g. foreign government, corporation,band funding, etc.) – send your sponsorship letter to
  • 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
You will be granted an APA automatically for Winter term if you have:
  • Applied for OSAP for 2021-22 and have received an assessment by August 15th
  • Notified Queen's of your Out of Province provincial/territorial government student assistance in 2020-21
  • Applied for US Government Loans for 2021-22

Step 3: Student Card Validation

The final step of registration is to ensure you have your Student Card validated. You will keep your card for the duration of your degree program at Queen’s, and will have it validated each September.

Every Queen’s student is issued a Student Card at the beginning of their studies. It serves not only as a form of identification, but as your passport to a number of on-campus services, including those provided by:

  • The Office of the University Registrar
  • Campus Security
  • Faculty offices and departments
  • Queen’s University Libraries
  • The Athletics and Recreation Centre (ARC)
  • Numerous student services, including pre-purchased meal plans and bus service

Students are issued a card at the beginning of their studies, and it is validated each year provided you are enrolled.
