You have several options for paying your tuition and fees to CapU.

You can make payments to Capilano University through online banking, in person at your bank, or through your myCapU account (Visa/Debit and MC/Debit are not accepted onine). You can also pay in person at the Cashier’s Office, or through other options noted below.

Online banking

You can easily pay your tuition and fees through online banking with a Canadian bank.

To set up Capilano University as a payee, use your nine-digit Capilano University student ID number for your account number. 

It will take at least three business days for your payment transaction to show up in your student account. Hang on to your bank payment receipt until you’re sure the payment has gone through and shows up in your student account.

You can pay in person at the Cashier’s Office by cash, cheque (no post-dated cheques), money order or debit card. Cheques should be made payable to Capilano University.

Interac online payments

Interac Online payments can be made through your myCapU account.  The service is available from major banks including Bank of Montreal, Royal Bank, Scotiabank and TD Canada Trust.

However, debit cards that have Visa or Mastercard attached are not accepted online, since the system considers them to be credit cards.

Learn more about Interac payments on the interaconline website.

Credit cards
