How to pay your fees
We offer many quick and convenient ways to pay your fees.
Camosun College no longer accepts cash payments effective January 1, 2020
The BC government has launched an anti-money-laundering initiative which impacts the way colleges and universities collect tuition and related student fees. To reduce risk, the province has requested post-secondary institutions limit the amount of cash they accept.
While Camosun has no reason to believe our cash acceptance practices have been taken advantage of for the purposes of laundering money, our practice have changed as of January 1, 2020:
- Camosun no longer accepts cash payments for all credit and non-credit tuition and student fees—no exceptions.
- Cash payments will be accepted for certain types of transactions at ancillary/retail service locations, including those at the Bookstore and food services outlets.
Camosun continues to accept a variety of payment methods, including online banking (preferred).
Tuition and student fees can be paid using you financial institution's online banking options up until midnight on the fee deadline date without incurring a late penalty. Registration deposits should be paid 3-5 business days prior to your assigned registration date.
To use the online banking option:
- Set up Camosun College as a ‘bill payee’—the same as you would for your cable, cell phone, or credit card company.
- Use your Camosun ID as your account number (e.g. C0123456)
- Follow your financial institutions' instructions to make a bill payment to Camosun College—it’s that simple!
The Registrar’s Office at both campuses accepts debit card, cheque, and money order during regular office hours. Effective January 2020, Camosun no longer accepts cash payments for tuition and student-related fees.
We do not accept credit cards for paying domestic tuition (except for the application fee, registration deposit, and tuition for continuing education classes). Why not?
Payment may be made by mail or on-campus drop box if paying by cheque or money order. After hours drop boxes are located at:
- Lansdowne campus
East entrance, Dawson Bldg.
- Interurban campus
2nd floor hallway, Campus Centre Bldg.
Be sure to include your name, student number, birthdate and other relevant information with your payment.
- using your credit card during regular office hours: 250–370–3550 or Toll free 1–877–554–7555 (Application fees, registration deposits and tuition for continuing education classes only). Why not?
Bring your signed Passport to Education or Youth Options form to the Campus Cashier (office hours) as soon as possible. It will reduce your first-term fees.
If your fees are paid by a sponsoring agency, a fully completed and authorized Sponsor Agency Approval for Fees and/or a Sponsor Agency Approval for Fees - Group Listing, or Employer/Sponsor Sponsorship of Tuition Fees - Continuing Education form must be submitted and received by Enrolment Services by the fee deadline. **Note: new forms will be available March 7, 2019.
It is the student’s responsibility to obtain a valid sponsorship for each term. You should be aware that some sponsor agencies may require considerable lead time to provide sponsorship forms. Your sponsor(s) (companies, government agencies or others) will be invoiced by the College’s Finance office after your registration is completed.
Sponsors should note that once a sponsored student has registered, they cannot avoid liability for fees or other amounts covered by the sponsor document without the College’s written agreement to sponsorship withdrawal.
Students sponsored by the Adult Upgrading Grant (AUG) (formerly ABESAP) should follow ministry guidelines.
