Make a payment within Canada

Online banking

McGill is registered as a bill with most Canadian banks and many credit unions and trust companies.

  • Log into your online banking
  • Add McGill as a bill (bill payee) and the account number is your McGill ID number (*If a Guest is paying, please use the Student’s ID, not the Guest ID)
    • We are listed as McGill University (PQ) or MCGILL UNIVERSITY, we are not TRU MCGILL RESIDENCE.
  • Pay the McGill bill
  • It will take 1-3 business days for the payment to be received, and will be credited to your account around 1:30pm.
  • If you paid by the due date, we will receive the payment before interest is charged.
  • If you have a hold, the hold will lift when the payment is received and credited to your account.


We recommend that you use one of the electronic methods of payment. If this is not possible, we do accept cheques. The University is not responsible for mail service delivery. Postmarks on envelopes are not viewed as the received date. If a payment is received past the fee deadline indicated on your e-bill, interest and/or a Late Payment Fee will be assessed. The cheque can be mailed, along with a copy of your e-bill, to:

McGill University — Student Accounts Office
Room MS-55
3415 McTavish Street
Montréal, Québec H3A 0C8

Cheques, money orders or bank drafts should be made payable to "McGill University" in Canadian funds. To ensure that your account is correctly credited, you must print your family name and McGill ID number on the front of the cheque or money order.
