Procedures for payment of school fees

Fees must be paid before the start of each semester. The fees include tuition, compulsory fees, and incidental fees. The regular full load is usually 15 credits (5 courses) each semester. Note: Exchange students are exempted from school fees.

You can view the total amount due for your tuition and compulsory fees:

  1. Visit Self-Service in myBU;
  2. Click on the Finances tab;
  3. Click on Balance.

Financial Aid applicants in a degree program

If you applied for government loans, you can pay your fees when you receive your funds at the start of the semester. You will not have to pay the late fee if you complete the online Promissory Note by the required deadline. Non-Degree / General Interest students are not eligible to use the promissory note.
NOTE: All students who complete the promissory note are responsible to pay their fees from their loans/bursaries in September for Fall, and January for Winter when they receive their funds. We encourage students to apply for government aid early to avoid delays receiving funding.

Select a method of payment

  • The preferred method of payment is online banking. You can pay using your internet banking with the following banks: RBC, CIBC, BMO, Desjardins, National Bank, Scotia Bank and TD. Add Bishop’s University as a payee using your student ID# as your account number. The University does NOT accept E-Transfers; please do not make a payment via Email Transfer as your funds can get frozen for up to 30 days.
  • NEW! Make a payment from Bishop’s myBU portal. Login to myBU, then click on “PowerCampus Self Service” in the upper-right box. Once in Self Service, click on the Finances tab, then click on “Balance”. You’ll see a button in the left column called “Make a Payment”. Once clicked, it will take you to a link to your bank where you can login and complete the payment. **Unfortunately, Desjardins and National bank are not part of this system, so you will need to use one of the other method of payment with those two banks.
  • Cash and Interac at the Business Office counter (McGreer, 2nd floor).
  • Cheques payable to Bishop’s University. US cheques are accepted (please contact the Business Office for the current exchange rate). Indicate your ID number on your cheque.

Note that Credit Cards and Credit Card cheques are not accepted.

For International payments please see the International Students section.

Send your payment by the deadline:

  • Winter: December 15
  • Spring / Summer: April 25
  • Fall: August 15

You must add $65.00 to your payment if you pay after the deadline date. NOTE: If you send your payment in the mail, your envelope must be post-marked up until the deadline date.

Income Tax Receipts

All students will have a T2202A tax receipt posted on their online student portal in Mid to late February of each year. All fees billed to the student the previous year will be reflected on the T2202A. Quebec students will receive a Relevé 8 as long as they provide the university with their Social Insurance Number. Form T2202A reports only the tuition paid and the number of months the student is enrolled in a qualifying educational program; it does not provide assurance that the student is eligible for the tuition, education, or textbook credit or for a scholarship exemption, nor does it provide assurance that the student is eligible to participate in the lifelong learning plan. Each student must determine if he or she is eligible for these tax incentives according to his or her own circumstances. For further details, refer to the resource material located on CRA’s web site for students, or consult your tax advisor.
