    Tax credits for tuition

    Since the program is classified as full-time, students who are self-sponsored (i.e. pay their own tuition) may be able to take advantage of the tax-deductible status of the tuition fees. We encourage you to consult your accountant to get more information about this opportunity.

    Invoices and account statements

    The University will not issue printed invoices nor account statements. If someone other than the student will be paying the student's fees, e.g. a sponsor, company, etc., the student must make sure that the person or company paying the fees is fully aware of the payment deadlines and methods by which payment can be made.

    Payment delays

    Payments made through a bank's online payment service take approximately 3 to 5 business days to appear on your account. Other payment methods may also take several days to appear on your account. Please keep this in mind when meeting a payment deadline.
