Please be advised that as of October 1, 2018, the Registrar’s Office will no longer accept cash for payment of your Conestoga student tuition fees. This change is consistent with the approach already adopted by many other colleges, and will result in increased efficiency and safety for both our students and employees.
Once you arrive and are a student at the College, you will be able to pay your tuition fees online through the Student Portal, or in person with credit cards, debit cards, web banking or money orders.

A $1,500 mandatory, non-refundable tuition deposit is required in order to secure a place in the program.
Should you defer to another available intake, any fees paid will transfer to the new intake, however, deposit payment remains non-refundable if you do not supply proof of a visa refusal. *See withdrawal and refund policy below.
For students who register and attend classes, the tuition deposit is part of the student’s tuition fees and reduces the tuition owed.
Should a student’s visa be refused and the International Office is provided with a copy of the visa rejection letter, tuition will be refunded less the $200.00 college administrative fee.
Your deposit is applied to your tuition, however you are still required to pay the balance of tuition owing by the due dates specified in your Letter of Acceptance.
Key Due Date for payments – when you should pay
The due date for the semester fees will be approximately one month prior to the start of classes for programs with two consecutive semesters.

Make an international payment to the college
Conestoga College has partnered with two leading international payment processors: Western Union Global Pay for International Students and Flywire. These services allow you to make a payment to Conestoga through a wire transfer or credit card payment directly from your home country.
Payments can be made quickly and in your home currency and are typically applied to your student account within five business days of being received by the college.
In addition to Western Union and Flywire, we continue to accept online payments through web banking or direct transfer from your bank branch. We also accept international money orders, bank drafts or certified cheques.
Choose the payment option that works best for you.
The Western Union's GlobalPay for International Students option allows you to pay the Canadian dollar tuition fees in the currency of your choice.
Note: This is not a payment through Western Union Agent locations (except in the case of some payments from India). You will simply be paying a Western Union Bank account and then Western Union transfers the funds to Conestoga College in Canadian dollars.How to Make a Payment
* If your local currency is not an option available in the system, you will need to choose another currency on the list to arrange your payment, or contact Western Union for more information. The subject line should read ‘Western Union payment issue'. Please indicate what currency you are trying to pay in, or where you are trying to pay from, and what the precise issue is.
** When paying from China or India, you will be given your rate when you process your transfer per the payment instructions.
*** For payments from India, China and South Korea, you will be instructed to pay on a particular website or bank (e.g. ICICI for India)

Paying from India with Flywire
I have a loan from an Indian bank or financial institution. Can I use Flywire?
Yes, loan holders can use Flywire to make tuition payments. After making your payment request, you will be provided with an “Authorization Letter” along with the bank instructions from your Flywire student account dashboard. The authorization letter will demonstrate that Flywire is acting as the only and official authorized international payment processor and the end recipient of your payment is your educational institution.
Students receiving loans should provide the “Authorization Letter” to their banking institution and insist they send the payment to our Flywire account in India without delay. If the loan company has any questions they can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
How does sending funds from India work?
Once you make a payment request, you will be able to access Flywire’s bank instructions. These bank instructions contain all necessary bank account details you will need to complete your payment. You will also be provided with a prefilled A2 form. You can also access your payment instructions from your Flywire student dashboard at any time. You can choose to pay us through National Electronic Fund Transfer (NEFT) or Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS).
Once you have completed your payment you will need to submit your A2 form to Muthoot, the official collector of A2 forms in India. You may submit a scanned A2 form by following the instructions provided by Flywire. If you prefer to submit a paper copy of the form, you will be asked to choose between their pick up and drop off services. With pick up service, your A2 form will be picked up by courier at an address you specify in India. A local Indian phone number will be provided on your bank instructions so that you can contact our courier Muthoot directly to arrange the pickup/ delivery of the A2 form or any other A2 form related questions that you might have.
Alternatively you may choose to drop the payment and A2 form off at one of 4000 Muthoot branches throughout India. Visit http://www.muthootfinance.com/contact/branch-locator to find the closest branch. Flywire recommends contacting Muthoot at any of the phone numbers provided on the payment instruction form so they can expect your visit.
My bank is asking for my school’s account and routing number and a SWIFT code. What should I do?
Flywire will provide the necessary bank details when booking a payment through the Flywire payment portal. Download the payment Authorization Letter that is included with the payment instructions and provide this letter to your bank.
