Making a payment on your Student Account.
Whether you are paying your tuition deposit, paying a portion or all of your fees for a term, or paying a phone bill or library fine, putting money onto your student account has never been easier.
Applications fees, deposits and miscellaneous fees can be paid using a credit card.
King’s does not accept credit cards as a method of payment for tuition and fees in person, but you can use credit cards to pay for tuition and fees on line (follow the OnLine Payments link.) Please note that there is an additional surcharge (charged by our external vendor, Plastiq) for using this service.
You can pay for deposits, tuition, student fees and residence fees through online banking at the following banks. Under each bank are links to the specific bank’s bill payment options and hints on selecting King’s as a new payee on your bill payment profile.
There are two steps in this process. First you need to add King’s as a biller on your on-line banking profile. You only need to do this once. Second you need to make your payments though the bill payments section of your on-line banking.
Adding King’s as a Biller
Find your bank below (click the [+] to expand the details) and follow the directions to your bank website and to search for King’s as a biller. This is a tricky step as there are a few other institutions in Canada with “King’s” in their name. Make sure that you select King’s located in Edmonton.
Please note that your bank may abbreviate the payee entry after you have set it up.
Once you have located King’s through the process above, please use your 6 digit student ID as your account number (found on the lower right side of your student ID Card). This is the same number you use for lab, webmail and Registry on-line service access. You can find it on your ID card as illustrated here. For this student, the student ID is 090310
For newly admitted students who do not yet have a student ID number, please contact the office of the Registrar to obtain your 5 digit file number. You will be assigned a student ID to use for subsequent transactions. You can subsequently edit your account number if you wish.
Making your Payment
You can sign up for a pre-authorized debit plan prior to confirming your registration. Payments are processed through automatic withdrawal from your Canadian bank or credit union. There is a fee charged per pre-authorized debit plan. There will be a link to this service from your Registry OnLine services account. This means you must have a valid Canadian bank account.
Monthly installments are interest free if the payments are received on time. Should you fail to keep your payments in good standing, you will incur interest charges of 19.56% per annum calculated back to the date of your Registration Confirmation. Further, you will not be eligible to pay by monthly installments in the subsequent term.
Your first payment, which is paid to King’s, is due on or before your registration confirmation date. The remaining installments are due on the first of each month.
|Payment Dates||Fall||Winter||% due|
|First payment||On or before August 31||On or before January 3||25%*|
|Second installment||On October 1||On February 1||25%|
|Third installment||On November 1||On March 1||25%|
|Fourth installment||On December 1||On April 1||25%|
You can pay for Applications fees, deposits and miscellaneous fees by credit card or debit card. King’s does not accept Online Credit payments as a method of payment for tuition and fees.
