Note 2) Coverage under the Student Health and Dental Plans is on the basis of an academic year. Students who enrol in the plan for the fall and winter semesters will be covered for the period September to August. Students not meeting this criteria should check with MUNSU for their status in the health plan.
Note 3) International Students are not eligible for these health/dental plans and must purchase compulsory coverage through the International Advising Centre. Contact the International Student Advisor at 709 864 8895 for details.
Late Registration Fee
You will be permitted to register after the dates specified above; however, you will be subject to a late registration fee of $20 if you have not registered within one month of your contract starting date for interns and residents, or by September 1 for undergraduates. In certain circumstances, an additional fee of $10 may be charged for every day beyond the deadline that you register.
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 - Moneris, Memorial's clearing house for credit card payments, charges a 1.95% convenience fee to those who use a MasterCard credit card to make payments on student accounts. Since December 31, 2013, MasterCard has been the only credit card accepted for student account payments. Students continue to have a range of payment options, including online or telephone banking, payment by mail using cheque, money order, bank draft or wire transfer of funds, or payment in person by cash, cheque or debit card. For more information, please refer to the FAQ. 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. Ensure your payment is received by payment deadline (check the University Diary and Relevant Dates for dates).
TELEPHONE or ONLINE BANKING - Customers of most major Canadian Chartered Banks who have access to the banks' telephone or online banking systems can pay their fees up to and including the fees payment deadline (check the University Diary and Relevant Dates for dates) using this service. Further information on the use of this banking system can be obtained from your local branch.
STUDENT AID - - In place since Fall 2012, important changes to the student loans disbursement process affect all students who have applied and been approved for funding. See the Provincial Department of Advanced Education and Skills Student Aid website for details.
Once your application for financial assistance has been assessed and approved for funding, you will be sent a Notice of Assessment and a Master Student Financial Assistance Agreement (MSFAA). You must complete and mail your MSFAA to the National Student Loan Service Centre (NSLSC) via a designated Canada Post outlet. Once the NSLSC has confirmed receipt of your MSFAA and has received Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment from Memorial, your financial assistance will be deposited to your bank account and/or sent directly to Memorial University to pay tuition fees. This one-time loan agreement is issued for the lifetime of your educational borrowing, provided any break in studies is not more than two years. There will no longer be an in-person pick-up and processing distribution process on campus.
If you do not want your fees deducted from your loan you must pay by one of the other methods at least 7 business days before the first day of lectures. 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.
If you are a student at Memorial University receiving a student loan from a province other than Newfoundland and Labrador, you can finalize necessary documents and pick up your loan at the University Centre, UC4018. Contact Cheryl Peckham at 709 864 3536 or 709 864 6168. Students from the United States who are interested in applying for U.S. Student Aid should contact Rhonda Byrne, International Student Coordinator at 709 864 6167, University Centre, UC4016.
Remember, postgraduate interns and residents with outstanding fees after August 1 and undergraduates with outstanding fees after lectures begin will be assessed a late payment penalty.
Inquiries regarding fees should be directed to the Cashier's Office at 709 864 8226/8829.
