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.

    • If that is your official OLSAS calculation and it’s so off, I’d be curious to know why as well. Generally speaking, my calculator has been reasonably accurate, so it may be worth looking into what they used to come up with those numbers. Assuming you included everything in my calculator, unless something is wrong with how I did things specific to your situation, they may have made a mistake. It’s rare but it happens. I’d confirm.  Let me know if it does turn out to be my app. 
    • https://www.osgoode.yorku.ca/programs/juris-doctor/jd-admissions/upper-year-exchange-applicants/transfer-letter-permission-applicants/ Decisions are generally made in accordance with the following priorities: Up to one-half of the available positions will be awarded to applicants on the basis of the strength of their law school academic records to date. It is therefore critical that we receive an indication of an applicant’s standing relative to the rest of his or her class. No fewer than one-half of the available spaces will be awarded to applicants who demonstrate compelling, compassionate circumstances that require them to transfer to Osgoode Hall Law School. Academic qualifications are not ignored in this subgroup but rather are used to aid in deciding between candidates who demonstrate comparable compassionate circumstances. Within this subgroup, priority will be given to: persons who must relocate to the Toronto area due to their own medical condition or that of an immediate family member; persons who would be separated from their dependents where separation to date has been extensive and commuting is not a viable option; and persons who demonstrate extreme financial hardship occasioned by study outside of the Toronto area. You sound a little insensitive to the fact that there are people attending law school with serious needs. My buddy transferred to Osgoode with a strong B+ average, but also had compassionate reasons in that he could hardly afford living expenses and had a wife and children to care for in Toronto.   
    • There likely isn't, I just find it odd that the change from the past cycle to this one is so different. Like I said in my original post, heed Ryn's advice and don't get your hopes up either way.
    • There has to be... most of the people that got in queue a few days ago received an acceptance
    • I didn't think there was any correlation between when you go into queue and when your are accepted.
