Payment and Collection of Fees

For information on how to pay your fees, please visit

Graduate students receiving funding through the University of Calgary may apply for a Payment Plan which arranges the fee payment to be spread over a period of time. For more information and availability, see the FGS website.

Students may pay their fees by cash, cheque, money order or debit card using the following methods:

  • Mail a cheque or money order to the Enrolment Services (117 MacKimmie Library Block, University of Calgary, 2500 University Drive N.W., Calgary, Alberta T2N 1N4)
  • Through Telephone/Internet Banking Services. The University of Calgary is listed with the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Bank of Montreal, Royal Bank, Scotiabank, TDCanada Trust, ATB Financial, Alberta, BC & Ontario Credit Unions, Caisse Populaire, First Calgary Savings, HSBC, ING & The National Bank of Canada
  • In person at Enrolment Services (Monday to Friday, 09:30-4:30; Thursday, 10:00-4:30)
  • If fees are paid from some form of student assistance, it is the responsibility of the student to advise the Fee Advisor and to produce a letter from the source of the assistance as confirmation. This must be done before the fee payment deadline to avoid penalty.
  • If fees are to be paid from government student loans, application must be made through the University of Calgary Student Awards and Financial Aid Office to ensure automatic deferral of payment of fees. If assistance is being provided from a source other than government loans, a letter from the source concerned must be presented to Enrolment Services prior to the prescribed fee deadline date.
  • Students receiving disbursement of their student loan in one installment will have both Fall and Winter Term fees deducted from the single installment plus any other outstanding debts owing to the University (i.e., room and board, student emergency loans, fines, etc.). Students receiving disbursement of their loan in two installments will have Fall Term fees deducted from the fist installment and Winter Term fees deducted from either or both of the installments.

If financial assistance is refused, the fees must be paid within ten days. The letter of refusal from Alberta Learning Student Finance must be produced to avoid the late payment penalty. It should be noted that students will not have their registration cancelled if financial assistance is refused and such students will be liable for tuition and general fees owing for the term. 
General fees must be paid no later than the deadline indicated in the Academic Schedule for the student's annual registration month.
Program and continuing fees are collected as follows:
4/12 in Fall                 2/12 in Spring
4/12 in Winter            2/12 in Summer

Course-based students' fees must be paid in full by the deadline in the Academic Schedule for the annual registration semester and for each semester in which courses are being taken.

The last date for the payment for late registrants is 10 days after assessment.
