How do I know what to pay?
To see how much you owe, go to Self-Service > Student Finance menu > Account Summary. The account balance is detailed in the line 'Total Account Balance'.
Account statements will be available:
- in late August for fall term
- in late December for winter term
Previously paid registration and housing deposits are included on the fall term statement.
Please print the information from Self-Service if an invoice is required.
In the spring, new and returning students must pay a non-refundable registration deposit, and a housing deposit (if living in residence) for the upcoming fall/winter terms. See due dates above.
If deposits are not received by the due date, students will not be able to register for courses or make any changes to their registration until their deposit is paid.
Tuition and fees
All tuition and fees for the entire year will be divided by term. The following applies to full-time students enrolled in both Fall and Winter terms:
- 50% of your tuition and student fees
- 70% of your residence and meal plan fees
- 100% of your orientation fee (for new students only)
- Minus your registration deposit
- Minus your housing deposit
- 50% of your tuition and student fees
- 30% of your residence and meal plan fees
To calculate how much you will pay ahead of time, visit tuition and fees.
To pay your deposits, tuition, and/or fees, visit make a payment.
How do I receive my financial aid?
If you've accepted financial aid from Mount Allison, including scholarships and bursaries, the amount will automatically be applied to your student account — normally before tuition and fees are due.
Scholarships and bursaries are normally disbursed by term:
- 50% at the beginning of the fall term
- 50% at the beginning of the winter term
To view your student account, go to Self-Service > Student Finance menu.
For more details, visit financial aid for current students.
University services may be revoked if payments have not been received by the due dates. Late fees may also apply.

Not going to make your payment on time?
There are a two options for students who can't make their full payment on time. Please contact us as early as possible before the due date.
Option 1: Account Payment Deferral
If you're payment will be late because of a delay (e.g. you have not yet received your Canada Student Loan), students may request a student account payment deferral.
How to request a payment deferral
Option 2: Student Payment Plans
Our Student Payment Plans assist students who are having difficulties paying their tuition and other fees by the scheduled date. Students must apply for the student payment plan on a term-by-term basis.
How student payment plans work and how to apply
To be reviewed/considered for a payment plan, you must:
- Be a current student with no prior balance owing from a previous term. If you have an outstanding balance on your student account, please contact email@example.com;
- Demonstrate an ability to make future payments;
- Agree to the terms and conditions of the Payment Plan Agreement;
- Agree to a schedule of installment payments.
$50/term will be added to the first installment.
How to apply
- Please apply via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Your application will be reviewed within five business days and you will be contacted through your MtA email with the decision. You may be contacted if additional information is required.
- If your application is approved, you must sign a "Student Payment Plan Agreement" which outlines the details of your payment schedule and obligations.
For information on fee payment methods, visit make a payment.
Please note: some payment methods can take longer than others to be processed into your student account. Pre-plan your payments so that they arrive on time.
A Student Payment Plan will be considered defaulted if one or more payments are not received by any of the designated due dates as per your Student Payment Plan Agreement. If a payment is missed, the plan and the student account will be subject to regularly scheduled monthly interest and late fees as per the Academic Calendar. Students who default will not be eligible to use future payment plans.
- Other fees and fines may be added to your student account at any time during the term, i.e. library fines, replaced ID cards, etc. Regularly review your Account Statement in Connect to ensure all charges are as expected, all payments made to the school have been received and all balances are paid in full before the start of the next term.
- If your account is not paid in full by the end of your payment plan agreement term, a $75 late-payment fee will be applied to your account. Additionally, you will not be permitted to register for the following term or receive school documents (diplomas, transcripts, letters of permission, official confirmations, etc.) until the outstanding amount is paid in full.
If you have any questions with respect to completing the application form or the Student Payment Plan Agreement, please contact email@example.com.
Refunds and adjustments
If you're planning to withdraw from a course or from residence, you may be eligible for a refund or adjustment.
Residence deposit refund
A residence room can be cancelled prior to the beginning of the fall academic term by completing the withdrawal form in Connect.
The amount of your refund will depend on the date you cancel your residence room.
For specific dates, see our Academic Calendar 4.2.3 Refunds for residence deposits.
Withdrawal from fall and/or winter terms
There will be no fee charged for withdrawal from university by Friday of the second week of term.
For withdrawals after Friday of the second week of term, fees will be calculated as 15% of the tuition for the term times the number of weeks or part weeks since the first day of classes. There is no credit (refund) given after the sixth week of classes.
Students changing from full-time to part-time status should contact the Registrar's Office regarding their fee obligations.
Any inquiries regarding the calculation/proration of tuition fees on academic withdrawal should be directed to Financial Services (firstname.lastname@example.org).
See our Academic Calendar 4.5.1 Withdrawals Fall and Winter.
For the procedure concerning the calculation of any refunds for students with United States (FFELP), visit U.S. Student Loans.
Withdrawal from spring/summer term
Refunds are calculated from the withdrawal date of a course dropped through Connect. For details, visit our Academic Calendar 4.5 Withdrawals and Student Accounts.
Withdrawal from residence and meal plan
When students withdraw from residence and meal plans, the date of withdrawal for the purpose of fee administration will be the date students have checked out of residence and keys have been returned, whichever is later.
Your refund will depend on the date you check out. For more details, visit our Academic Calendar 4.5.4 Residence and Meal Plan Withdrawals.
