Paying Your Fees

Your Student Account Online Statement reflects all charges assessed to your account. For domestic students, you can pay your student account through your bank, credit union or caisse populaire using telephone or online banking. For international students, York University has partnered with two providers (CIBC and Western Union Business Solutions) who offer secure online portals for International Students to make payments for course/program fees, residence, health care and UHIP charges.

Registration Deposit

 

Your registration deposit is part of your tuition fees: it is not an additional fee. The deposit confirms your registration at York University and grants you access to services you will need to prepare for the start of classes and continue through your courses.

A registration deposit is required only once, for the very first academic session in which you enrol in courses.
