Payment Options

    • Payments may be made through your personal online banking facility, at any chartered bank, or online by logging in through  Student Information Web Service .

Retain your bank payment receipt in the event that the University has not yet received the payment information from the bank by the Fee Payment Deadline.

      Online Banking

      The most efficient means of paying student fees is through online banking from a Canadian bank account. Capilano University is registered with most of the major Canadian banks for this payment of bills service. When you select Capilano University as a payee, the bank will request an account number. Please quote your 9-digit Capilano University student ID number. 

      Please ensure the 9-digit Capilano University student ID number is indicated.  We receive a file from the bank; it may or may not provide the name of the bank account holder.  Staff do not have the ability to search student relatives to locate the student.  Many times, a student name may be different than the name of the bank account holder.

      Important: Please allow 3 business bank days for your payment transaction to be reflected in your student account.

      Saturday, Sunday and statutory holidays are not considered business days.

      Credit Cards 

      In Fall 2010, Capilano University joined the growing number of post secondary institutions that no longer accept credit cards as a form of payment for domestic tuition. Credit card fees are a significant expense to the University. By reducing these costs, more resources will be available to fund the continued delivery of quality student education and services.

      Students will continue to be able to pay tuition fees through online banking, Debit cards, cash, cheque, and wire transfer.

      This change only affects domestic tuition and course-related registration fees. Application and other non-registration type fees may still be paid by credit card. Likewise, we will continue to accept credit card payments for Bookstore purchases and Continuing Education courses.

      Western Union Business Solution

      The most efficient payment process for an international student to pay their student fees is through a Western Union Business Solutions Transfer. This option allows you to pay the Canadian dollar student fees in the currency of your choice.

      International students can choose to make a payment to Capilano by selecting the Western Union Business Solutions Transfer link noted below. If you choose to proceed, you will be transferred to a secure website where you will receive instructions on how to complete the payment to a local banking institution in your currency of choice.

      • After providing your student name and number you will be directed to a web page where you will be able to enter in the Canadian dollar amount you wish to pay to Capilano.
      • The amount being transferred to Capilano should only be for tuition, fees, and other charges to the student account, and should not include living expenses for the student.
      • You will select your preferred payment currency from a drop-down menu. A conversion at a competitive rate of exchange from the Canadian dollar amount will be applied to your chosen currency through the Western Union Business Solutions real-time rate engine. You will have the opportunity to view the payable amount in your local currency before committing to the transaction. To proceed with the transaction simply click OK and you will be presented with the banking instructions to make the payment.
      • The exchange rate quoted will remain valid for 72 hours from the time which will be indicated on the payment instruction you'll receive after clicking "submit" button. During this time you or the payer must take the banking instructions to your bank, which will initiate the transfer of funds through Western Union for credit to Capilano University. Western Union must receive your payment within 72 hours of your receipt of the applicable currency quote. In the event Western Union receives your payment after the 72 hour period, Western Union will use the current exchange rate to convert the currency. On receipt of the funds your student fee account will be credited. While the transfer is in progress, your account will continue to show the outstanding amount.

      To proceed with a Western Union Business Solutions Transfer, go to the  Western Union Business Solutions payment page.
