How to Pay
Registration at Kwantlen generally requires payment of deposits, fees and tuition by published deadlines. The following explains how much to pay, when to pay, and how to get help with your tuition payments.
Students must provide photo identification when making a payment in person. Third party payments (payments made by someone on your behalf) must be made online or using the drop box.
You must have $250 (or more) credit on your account balance for the term and your account must not be in arrears. Select Account Summary by Term from the Student Registration menu in myKwantlen to see your term balance.
Registration Fees and Tuition
Once you have finished registering, select Account Summary by Term from the Student Registration menu in myKwantlen to see your term balance. Your registration deposit (or admission/international deposit) will automatically adjust the amount owing. Your final payment, due by the fee payment deadline should be for the full amount owing.
Extended Health & Dental Plan
If you are eligible to opt-out of the Extended Health Plan and/or the Dental Plan, you must do so within thirty days of the start of classes. Opting out online will cause your amount owing to automatically re-adjust (overnight). You can verify your fee assessment by checking the total charges for the " Student Assn Ext. Health Plan " and for the " Student Assn Ext. Dental Plan ".
Finding your payment deadline
In general, the Fee Payment Deadline for all tuition and fees is set approximately 10 days prior to the start of classes. Students in open registration programs can find the fee payment deadline for each semester on the Dates & Deadlines page. The Arrears Deadline, or final payment for registration changes that occur after the Fee Payment deadline, is generally at the end of the second week of classes. See the Dates & Deadlines page for the exact date.
For students in limited enrolment programs that follow the regular academic semester, the fee payment deadlines are the same as open registration programs and are published in the Dates & Deadlines page.
For students in limited enrolment programs that do not follow the regular semester dates, the full payment deadline is specified by the program area, but is normally three to four weeks prior to the start of classes.
Full fees are due upon acceptance of a seat for students in continuous intake programs.
Registration Deposit Waiver
Students who have been approved for financial assistance, or scholarship, may be eligible for an exemption from the deposit. For more information, please contact the Student Awards & Financial Assistance Office.
Students who have been approved for sponsorship may be eligible for an exemption from the deposit. For more information, please contact Kwantlen's Accounts Receivable at (604) 599-2057 or (604) 599-2242 or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) between 8:30 to 4:30 Monday to Friday.
Registration fees and tuition deferrals
Students who have been approved for assistance may be eligible to defer payment of their registration fees and tuition. For more information, please contact the Student Awards & Financial Assistance Office.
All tuition and fees are due by the Fee Payment Deadline. However, for late registration or for students that have received a Tuition Deferral, the Arrears deadline is the final payment deadline date. Late payment penalties will be assessed to all balances outstanding after this date.
Financial Assistance Programs
Kwantlen offers a wide range of financial assistance programs for students. Students are encouraged to take some time to review the Student Awards & Financial Assistance Office web site.
Registration Deposit Waiver and Tuition Fees Deferral
Students who have been approved for assistance may be eligible for a waiver from paying the registration deposit or be eligible to defer payment of their registration fees and tuition. For more information, please contact the Student Awards & Financial Assistance Office .
Students receiving an Entrance Award or Scholarship offered by the University will automatically receive a registration deposit and tuition fees override, and will be given instructions on how to have the funds applied directly to their student account. Further information may be obtained by contacting the Scholarships and Awards Coordinator at the Surrey campus at 604.599.2000.
Direct Award recipients, who wish to use their awards to pay their registration deposit and/or tuition, should contact the Student Awards & Financial Assistance Office at 604.599.2000. It is your responsibility to confirm that your fees have been covered. Many external scholarships require confirmation of enrolment before funds are released. Enrolment will be confirmed by Student Enrolment Services after registration ends, so recipients of these scholarships must make their own arrangements to pay their fees by the Fee Payment Deadline or their registration may be cancelled. Payment deadlines and late penalties will not be waived.
