Billings and Due Dates

Confirmation of Acceptance Deposit

In certain graduate departments, you are required to make a deposit on tuition shortly after receiving notice of your acceptance to the University. You will be required to confirm your acceptance of the offer of admission on and pay the required deposit by credit card (Visa or Mastercard) at that time.

Invoicing of Fees

Fees are assessed on a term by term basis. Electronic billing is the official means of delivering fee statements to all McGill students. Your e-bill includes all charges to your account, including tuition, fees, health insurance and other charges. The University generally produces e-bills at the beginning of the month and sends an email notification to your official McGill email address stating that your e-bill is available for viewing on Minerva. Charges or payments that occur after the statement date appear on the next month's statement, but you can view them immediately on the Account Summary by Term under the Student Accounts Menu on Minerva (this is the online dynamic account balance view).

Failure to check email on a regular basis in no way warrants the cancellation of interest charges and/or late payment fees. Refer to the Student Accounts website at for information on payment due dates.

Billings and Due Dates: Guest Access on Minerva

Billings and Due Dates: Guest Access on Minerva

You may choose to give access privileges to a guest on Minerva. These privileges include viewing e-bills/account summaries, tax receipts and e-payment.

The web page describes how to set up this access. You must provide certain information about the individual you wish to grant access to your fee-related information. The guest will be contacted by email and provided with a link to use within a designated time period.

You can cancel guest access privileges at any time.

Note that Service Point staff may respond to questions from your authorized guest regarding the information to which they have been given access.

If you do not want to give a guest access privileges to Minerva, you can enter an alternative student billing email address on Minerva to which Student Accounts will send a copy of the monthly e-bill notification. However, if someone has been granted access as a guest and their guest email is the same as a student billing email address, the University will deactivate the student billing email address in order to only notify your guest about the billings once.

You should NOT share your PIN (personal identification number) with anyone, including a guest on Minerva. Guest Access allows your guest to view your account information without knowing your PIN.
