Pay your fees online.
Preferred payment for tuition and fees is through online banking or Western Union's GlobalPay for students.
Online banking is the fastest and preferred payment method for anyone with a Canadian bank account. Payments are processed through your financial institution's own banking service. This can be done from anyone's online bank, as long as the account number is correct. Funds will be applied to your account with UCalgary.
Here's how to pay through online banking:
Log on to your bank's online system
Create a payee profile
Add the "University of Calgary - Tuition Fees" as a payee on your bill payment profile (name will vary from bank to bank)
Enter your account information
- The account number is the your eight-digit UCalgary Student ID number (UCID) and the first five letters of your last name.
Examples: If your name is John Jones and your UCID is 00486321 then you'd use 00486321JONES or if your name is Jane Zimmerman and your UCID is 10005238 then you'd use 10005238ZIMME
- If your entire last name is less than five characters, use your entire last name.
Example: If your name is Sara Sam and your UCID is 00486321 than you'd use 00486321SAM
Allow for processing time
It may take up to five business days for online payments to be processed. Payments initiated on or before the term fee deadline will not be subject to late interest.
Admission deposits must initiated on or before the deposit deadline to ensure your offer of admission is not cancelled.
International funds transfer
As of Fall 2019, wire transfer is no longer an accepted form of payment.
