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.

    • Hey there, tagging along on this post.. does anyone know how they consider exchange grades? I did a semester abroad in third year, second semester and had a pretty decent GPA there and OLSAS has received/ reviewed that transcript... but not sure what schools do re: L2... any thoughts? Thanks!

    • Hi, I was curious what statute and exactly where does it state that everyone is equal in law?
    • Background: My cold diagnostic score was about 135 (43% correct on 101 question test) two months ago. Have been studying casually since then, perhaps <10 hours in total because of school. Studying mainly with Mcgraw Hill prep's online course that accompanies the book. I did an online practice test this morning and scored about 138 (45% correct on 101 question test). Scenario: - Goal score is 165. - Registered for January 26th LSAT (about 6 weeks time). - Will have time to study full time 40hrs or more a week. - Current resources: The LSAT Trainer, Mcgraw Hill prep book (2017), Baron's Logic Games prep book, Baron's General prep book, Kaplan's LSAT Premier (2016-2017) prep book, and Princeton Review LSAT Decoded Prep Tests 72-76.  - PT1 Results: Arguments 1 = 68% correct, Arguments 2 = 44% correct, Reading Comprehension = 28% correct, Logic Games = 38% correct Questions: 1. What should I focus on with my current resources of books? 2. Should I buy the 7Sage online course to prep? 3. If you were in my shoes, how would you schedule your time? 4. Any other advice?
    • Two individuals in 4th year (one referred to "last year of studies") posted their stats on the accepted thread today. I think that settles the currently still in school aspect of the debate.
