Payments are acceptable by on-line banking*, cash, certified cheque, debit card, bank draft or money order payable to Nipissing University. Credit card payments are not accepted. If paying by debit card, please ensure that the payment you intend to make will not exceed your daily withdrawal limit. For convenience, payments by cheque or money order may be made by using the after-hours drop box located outside the Finance Office (F216). Students are strongly encouraged to submit their payment by on-line banking* to avoid line-ups. If payment is submitted by mail, please ensure that your Nipissing University student number is recorded on the front of the cheque. Payments sent by mail and postmarked by midnight of the deadline date will be accepted without penalty. Regardless of the date on the cheque, payments sent by mail and postmarked after the deadline date will be subject to a late payment service charge of 1.5% compounded monthly (19.56% effective annual rate).
Payments from students with outstanding balances from current or previous terms that may be intended as future residence or tuition deposits will first be applied against the existing outstanding balance, and not treated as a deposit payment.
*When paying through on-line banking go to your bank website and select bill payments. Add Nipissing University as a payee. Your account number is your student number (without the letter in front).

Nipissing University has partnered with PayMyTuition for international tuition payments. With PayMyTuition, you can pay your tuition payments from any bank, in any country in any currency at better than bank exchange rates. PayMyTuition is fast, simple and cost effective.

Students who intend to pay their fees with government loans (OSAP) must have applied for assistance no later than July 15th. If application for assistance is made after this date, funds may not be available in time for the payment of fees by the deadlines noted on the Fees and Payments page. Such students may be required to make their first payment from their own resources. Please note that July 15th is not the final deadline to apply for OSAP funding (See Financial Aid, Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards in index for further information).
All scholarships administered by Nipissing University are first applied to any outstanding tuition and student fees. The remainder of the award, if any, is forwarded by cheque to the student.
**An interest charge at the rate of 1.5% will be assessed monthly (19.56% effective annual rate) on all student accounts with balances outstanding after the relevant due date for fees incurred. Interest will not be waived for late payments.**
Non-payment of fees may render a student ineligible for registration in future sessions. In addition, students who are in financial arrears to the university may face deregistration from future courses and will not be issued their transcripts of record, statement of standing, degree or related evidence of their academic progress until such time as their account is cleared. The University uses the services of outside collection agencies and reserves the right to use any legal means to reclaim monies owing.
