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.

    • They made 44 offers to people with less than 151? 😦
    • I really don't know how to say this without using basically the same words, again. The table is referring to the number of offers made by U of Ottawa to applicants in various LSAT bands. And then it is referring to the number of students actually enrolled from that band. So apparently in 2016, they made offers to 21 students in the 171-180 band, and 2 were ultimately registered. You're wondering why the low percentage? Because apparently the other 19 received their offers and ultimately didn't take them. Again, because they are strongly competitive applicants and presumably went elsewhere instead. More offers occurring in lower bands because there are a heck of a low more applicants IN those bands. Higher conversion rate as you go lower because now we're talking about weaker applicants who presumably receive fewer other options. This makes perfect sense to me. What is it that you don't understand, exactly? FYI, I have no idea where these posted numbers came from. But I have no trouble interpreting them.
    • Generally, the rule of thumb is to try to have your legal education done in the the city you want to be in after law school. This is because this allows you to start making meaningful connections with colleagues, lawyers and law firms in the area since year 1. I understand that you wish to go to Toronto or Ottawa after law school, so I would stick to schools in those cities if I were you. I am from uOttawa and I enjoy the January intensive term. I like the fact that I can intern at a firm/ legal clinic during the January intensive term. Since we are only required to take 1 course during that term, the intensive term allows me to devote fully to the internship (if I choose to do one), and not have to worry about classes/ exams. Also, given that my family is not in Ottawa, I find it quite nice that I could at times intern at a place close to my family during that period.  Hope this helps.   
    • Congratulations! But with documented history of depression,  3.3 and 168 can only get you into TRU and UVic? Why didn't you apply for more?
    • TRU grads seem to place decently well in Vancouver firms, at least from my observation. My completely anecdotal observation is that UBC and UVic grads tend to be represented the most, followed by TRU and out-of-province schools.
