Methods of Payment
Memorial University offers students a variety of payment methods, each described in detail below. You should arrange to pay your fees, following the instructions below, to avoid the late payment penalty.
CASH/DEBIT CARD - Must be paid in person at the Cashier's Office. Do not mail cash.
CHEQUE - may be mailed to the Cashier's Office, delivered in person to the Cashier's Office, or placed in the night deposit slot at the Cashier's Office.
If you are using a cheque to pay fees you are strongly encouraged to mail it to avoid lining up at the Cashier's office. You may post-date the cheque to July 1 for interns and residents or to September 5 for undergraduate students.
CREDIT CARD - You must use Memorial Self-Service. Because Memorial Self-Service uses state-of-the-art encryption technology to ensure the security of your data you might experience difficulty using older browsers. If you do not have a current browser or are uncomfortable using a credit card on the Internet, credit card payments can be made in person at the Cashier’s Office. Pay early to avoid the busy period and to ensure that your payment is received by July 1 for interns and residents or by September 5 for undergraduate students.
TELEPHONE or ONLINE BANKING - Customers of the Royal Bank of Canada, the Bank of Montreal, the Bank of Nova Scotia and Canada Trust who have access to the banks' telephone or online banking systems can pay their fees using this service up to and including July 1 for interns and residents or September 5 for undergraduates. Further information on the use of these banking systems can be obtained from your local branch.
STUDENT AID - Student Loan documents are verified and signed electronically and the amount due to Memorial University, if any, is noted on the "Instructions to Lender" section. If you do not want your fees deducted from your loan you must pay by one of the other methods by August 17. Please note that if you pay by another method after this date, your tuition will still be deducted from your loan and your other payment will be refunded.
For those students who are registered effective August 24, approved certificates of eligibility will be available for pick up at the Student Affairs Office, Faculty of Medicine.
Remember, postgraduate interns and residents with outstanding fees after August 1 and undergraduates with outstanding fees after September 5 for fall, and January 5 for winter, will be assessed a late payment penalty.
