Alternative Payment Arrangement (APA) Program

 

Tuition fees and the Student Assistance Levy (SAL) for both Fall and Winter terms will be due by September 1st.

Many students cannot meet this deadline, despite having a proven source of funding.

The Alternative Payment Arrangement (APA) program allows students, upon approval, to extend the due date of their tuition payment (in part or in full) without penalty, to September 30th.

The following page provides important information on this program, including who should apply, and how.

To check if your APA application has been approved, check your SOLUS account on August 13th or within five business days of submission, whichever is later. If the HOLDS section has not been updated by August 23rd, contact solus@queensu.ca

 

  • Introduction to the Alternative Payment Arrangement (APA) Program
     What is it ?

    Tuition fees and the Student Assistance Levy (SAL) for both Fall and Winter terms are due at the University by September 1st, 2013.

     

    To assist students who cannot meet this deadline, but have a proven source of funding, an Alternative Payment Arrangement (APA) process has been developed. The Alternative Payment Arrangement program allows students, upon approval, to extend the due date of their tuition payment (in part or in full), without penalty, to September 30th. International students may defer payment to their Winter term fees to January 31st.

     

    Funding sources” are agencies that provide students with financial support. Queen’s University allows students to use any one or more of the following funding sources to confirm registration:

    • Canadian or US Government student financial assistance
    • Third-party funding (e.g. foreign government, corporation, band funding, etc)
    • Scholarships and/or awards external to Queen’s
    • Enrolment in the Graduate Payment Plan

    ALTERNATIVE PAYMENT ARRANGEMENT FORMS MUST BE SUBMITTED TO THE OFFICE OF THE UNIVERSITY REGISTRAR BETWEEN JULY 15th AND AUGUST 15th, 2013.

     

    Do NOT submit this form if...

    • you will be paying your fees in full by September 1st, 2013
    • you are a Graduate student on a Payment Plan
    • you will receive OSAP that covers ALL of your tuition and SAL

    If your 2013-2014 OSAP amount is greater than, or equal to your tuition fees and SAL owed, you will automatically be signed up for the APA - your tuition and fees are due September 30th.

     

    While the due date in SOLUS will not change, the Alternative Payment Arrangement indicator will appear in the 'Holds' section of your account.

     

      

    Why is this important?

     

    There are two steps to the registration process at Queen’s.

     

    1. The first step is the Selection of Courses. In a number of programs, mandatory courses will be selected for you and added to your academic program. These may be viewed in your SOLUS Student Center. Some programs allow students to select courses. Course selection for these occurs from July 15 - 28.

     

    • Once courses are selected and/or selected for you, the tuition fees and SAL will be applied to your student account. Fees will appear in your SOLUS Student Centre 24 hours after courses have been added to your academic program.
    •  
      2. The second step necessary to complete the registration is the payment of tuition fees and SAL.

     

    • Tuition fees and SAL for Arts & Science, Commerce, Engineering & Applied Science, Nursing, Law, Medicine, and Education are due in full on September 1st.
    • Registration is not complete unless fees are paid, or students have provided the university with acceptable alternate payment information, using this form. 

    Beginning October 15th, 2013, service charges will accrue for outstanding amounts, and will be applied on the 15th day of the month.  

     

  • Who should apply?
