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.

    • Hi everyone, I'm currently doing my undergraduate degree in a co-op program and am considering applying to law school. I was reading the U of T Law School Admissions website and came across this:  Our review of an applicant's undergraduate record is based on the principle that undergraduate records should be compared as fairly as possible across applicants. For this reason, we examine the pattern of the intensity of the course work taken across an applicant's undergraduate career (light versus heavy, full-time versus part-time, co-op versus regular, introductory versus upper-year courses, courses on exchange, courses during the summer term). I have a couple questions about this: 1. What is the reasoning for differentiating between regular and co-op programs? Does this mean students in co-op programs are at an inherent disadvantage in admissions? 2. Regarding summer courses, I assume U of T looks at them differently because they are sometimes accelerated or easier than those during the fall and winter terms.  Because I am in a co-op program, I am forced to do a summer term with a full course load. These courses are the same length and difficulty as the rest of my courses. Will U of T put less weight on my grades in these courses simply because they are "courses during the summer term"? If anyone has any information that can help answer these questions that would be a huge help for me. Thanks in advance.
