Paying Fees

We know paying for your SLC fees is a stressful and sometimes confusing process! Here are some of the answers to your burning questions about;

  • Tuition Deadlines
  • Tuition Deposit
  • How To Pay
  • Where To Go On Campus
  • Payment Plan Eligibility

What is the tuition deposit?

A $500 non-refundable tuition deposit is required for all new and returning domestic students entering a full-time program in the 2017/18 academic year. (The non-refundable tuition deposit for international students is $2350.00.)

The deposit will be used towards the balance due for that semester and will secure the student’s seat in the program. The deposit is charged only once per year and is directly applied towards tuition, reducing the remaining tuition balance owed by the deadline as outlined below.

Please pay careful attention to the deposit deadline. St. Lawrence College has several fee payment options for you to choose from.

To retain your offer of a space in a program, you must pay your deposit by the due date. You do not have a space in a program until you have met your payment obligations.


How can I pay the $500 non-refundable tuition deposit?

For the tuition deposit only, we will accept Interac, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express on campus or through the slc.me portal.  NOTE: for details on residence payment requirements, please refer to your residence contract.

Can I set up a payment plan to pay my tuition?

St. Lawrence College understands that there will be a few exceptional cases where students will not be able to meet the standard payment requirements. If you are not eligible for OSAP or government funding and are having financial difficulty, you may discuss your eligibility for a payment plan arrangement with our Student Accounts Receivable Clerk. You must complete the Student Tuition Payment Plan form and hand in any supporting documents along with the form five days before the tuition due date. Your application will be reviewed within three business days and you will be contacted with the decision. If you are approved you will be required to sign a Tuition Payment Agreement which outlines the details of your payment schedule and obligations. More information here.
