Paying for International Students

Convera for Students

The most reliable payment process for an international student to pay their fees from outside of Canada is through Convera for Students. You can easily track the status of your payments, and it is easier to receive refunds.

Convera allows you to pay your fees in the currency of your choice, which then converts into Canadian dollars. Your exchange rate quote is guaranteed for 72 hours after you receive your quote and you can track your payment as it moves through the system. Payments made through Convera are typically received 7 – 10 business days after your bank initiates the payment.

  • Select your country and the amount you would like to pay

  • You’ll receive quotes including details about how long payments will usually take. Select a quote to continue.

  • Enter your student number, address, and contact information. The Canadian Government requires an address to process all incoming and outgoing Canadian payments.

  • After you enter your information, you will be directed to complete the payment through the provider you chose, such as your bank, UnionPay, AliPay, etc.

  • You will be provided with a reference number that you can use to track your payment. We typically receive payment within 7-10 days.
