Tuition, Fees and Residence costs

The University of Guelph-Humber uses a semester billing system. This means students pay tuition and other fees prior to the beginning of each semester.

Payment Deadline Dates

Your fees for summer 2017 will be available to view on WebAdvisor on April 26, 2017.

Full tuition for summer 2017 must be paid by Friday, May 19, 2017.

Tuition and fees can be paid through WebAdvisor using a credit card. All credit card payments made through WebAdvisor will be processed through PayPal.com.

You can also pay through your bank in person, online or via telephone banking. You must register the University of Guelph-Humber as the payee and use your seven-digit student number as the account number. If your bank/credit union does not accept the University of Guelph-Humber as the payee, you can also use the University of Guelph. Do not use Humber College as the payee.

A late fee of $60 will be charged to accounts that are not settled by the tuition deadline date.

Deregistration will occur after the deadline dates if payment is not made in full. If you have any questions please contact finaid@guelphhumber.ca.

Global Pay for Students (Preferred method for International Students)

International students can pay their student fees from outside of Canada through Western Union’s GlobalPay for Students. This option allows you to pay your student fees in the currency of your choice.

Note: This is not a payment through Western Union Agent locations (except in the case of some payments from India). You will simply be paying a Western Union Bank account, and then Western Union transfers the funds to University of Guelph in Canadian dollars.

You can turn loyalty program points (earned by you, your parents or relatives) into money for school. To find out more visit HigherEdPoints' How it Works page.
