Confirmation of Acceptance Deposit
Billings and Due Dates: Confirmation of Acceptance Deposit
When you are admitted to the University, you are required to confirm your acceptance of the offer of admission on Minerva under the Applicant Menu at www.mcgill.ca/minerva and you must pay the required deposit (may vary by program) by credit card (AMEX, Visa, or MasterCard) at that time.
Invoicing of Fees
Billings and Due Dates: 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 miscellaneous 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 your McGill 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 for information on payment due dates.
|Term||Payment Due Date|
|Returning and new students||August 30, 2019|
|Returning and new students||January 6, 2020|
Late Payment Fees: If you have an outstanding balance greater than $100 on your account on October 31 (February 28 for the Winter term), you are charged a late payment fee as per the fee schedule found at Other Fees. When a student has a student aid deferral, government aid deferral, or graduate funding deferral that has ended, their next e-bill will show that there is no longer a deferral in effect. Should the balance not be paid in full by the payment due date on this bill, the late penalty fee will be charged in addition to interest.
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 www.mcgill.ca/student-accounts/parents-and-sponsors/guest-access web page describes how to set up this access. You must provide certain information about the individual to whom 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 revoke 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 “Alternate Student Billing” email address on Minerva to which Student Accounts will send a copy of the monthly e-bill notification.
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.
