Paying Tution with Visa

Recommended Posts

I would like to pay tuition with my Visa card (to collect points :wink: ). Has anyone done this with York before?

 

I called the Financial Services office and they said they would not accept my Visa over the phone and I would have to work with the bank (RBC) to pay it.

 

When I called the bank, they said I would not get any points unless the vendor (York) charged the visa.

 

The Osgoode fees and Financial Information Guide says “Cash or credit card payments are not accepted; we accept debit card payments…”.

 

Does anyone have any pearls to share with me?

 

tks.

I've found convenience cheques really convenient. But I'm not sure if you get the points for it. So you can pay tuition with your credit card via convenience cheques.

For some reason I really don't think you can pay with visa. This is more of a feeling then anything though, call Osgoode though.

If I recall correctly, there was a thread on this last year. I think the general concensus was that, short of an elaborate scheme where you buy somebody a $12,000 item and they pay your tuition in return, it's not possible.

 

It's a shame though, because that would be a lot of points. If you do figure out a way to make it work, be sure to let me know!

I just called and asked why they don't do it. Apparently, it would cost the school 3% of every transaction if they charged credit cards.

 

Any idea what happens if i don't pay today? I left a message with Penny on the subject..

I'm not sure, although I know it's considered part of "registration." I'd recommend paying today if you can, to avoid hassle, although I'm sure nothing catastrophic will happen if you pay tomorrow or next week. Talking to Penny or someone in student services is probably a good idea.

Brother Justin... did you apply to OSAP? If so, did you apply before the 15th of June? Your tuition is deferred until your OSAP arrives if you applied before the 15th.

may be this will be helpfull for the next semester, by my petro-points mastercard just came out with this new thing that every cheque you use gets you points! this means petro points on rent, osap payments and pretty much everything!

furthermore, they can be converted to pc points or sears points - we are looking forward to our gratis (pretty much) trip to cuba for Xmas already.

    • I never really had any professors I hated - I had profs I wasn't fond of their teaching style, but since every student varies on that it's REALLY hard to find out if a certain prof is 'good' or not. For instance, I disliked Fadel as a prof, but part of that was that I had him for Biz Org which is like the opposite of my area of interest. So coupling a lack of interest in the class with his teaching style made it seem worse than his teaching style probably was. Ultimately I find a great prof can help make even dry material seem fun, and a bad prof can make good material much less interesting, but you probably won't find too many profs you just can't learn from. And worse case scenario, you can do a lot of the learning on your own too!
    • I have an LLM (in the field of law I planned to/do practice in) and I got it right after my JD and before articling/getting Called. I doubt it has been the sole reason I got my articling position or my job after I got Called, but I was told by my principal that he found the LLM very impressive. I didn't do it to be more employable but rather because I wanted to and I enjoyed the area of law, but I think that it certainly can't have hurt my employability.   (Not even remotely in the IP field so can't speak to anything specific to that field).
    • Did you have prior litigation experience? 
    • I made a transition myself after articling, went from solicitor work into a litigation practice. Did it through sheer networking. Its difficult but very possible.
    • Hello everyone, just had a quick question here. Do most Canadian law schools accept the February LSAT for admission for that year? Which ones don't? Also, are you less likely to get in somewhere with your Feb lsat? Do spots usually fill up by then?   Thanks
