    • Assessed fees - On the SOLUS home page, in your Account Summary, click the “Charges by Due Date” link to see how much you owe and the due date for these fees.

  3. Obtain an exchange rate quote

Paying when you have Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries
Scholarships, bursaries and awards that are administered by Queen’s for students in undergraduate and professional programs (e.g. Queen’s Law / Queen’s Medicine) will be credited to your student account for the upcoming academic year in ONE installment. Check your SOLUS Student Centre – View Financial Aid to see the date in which your award will be posted to your account. Admission, renewable and upper-year awards will be posted to your student account by August 10th.
For awards administered by the Student Awards Office - award payments will be held in your student account to be applied to all current and future due university charges (e.g. fall term tuition and Student Assistance Levy, Student Activity Fees, Fall Term Residence, Winter Term tuition, Winter Term residence).
For awards administered by the School of Graduate Studies – please review the terms of your award offer(s) for payment details and check your SOLUS Student Centre – View Financial Aid for further information.
Any scholarships, bursaries and awards that are granted by external agencies but administered by Queen’s will be credited to your student account as soon as the external agency provides Queen’s with the funds. Check your SOLUS Student Centre – View Financial Aid to verify if the funds have been received and when they will be posted to your student account. If you are receiving a non-Queen’s scholarship or award (external to Queen’s University) that you will use to pay tuition, fees,and/or residence charges, and you are unsure the funds will be available by the applicable due date, you must submit an Alternative Payment Arrangement (APA) request. Information and deadlines for submitting an APA is available on our APA information page
Paying with your OSAP
At the time full-time enrolment is confirmed, Queen's will identify the amount of your OSAP to be remitted to Queen's. The amount of your OSAP to be remitted to Queen's will not exceed the value of your term tuition and fees, unless you have a balance outstanding from a previous academic term. Any remaining OSAP will be deposited to your personal bank account. Log on to your OSAP account at ontario.ca/osap and view your Funding Summary for details of what is being remitted to Queen's. Your funding will take a few days after the 'Estimated Date' on your OSAP Funding Summary to be received. You can also review your Student Fee Statement on Solus to verify Queen's has received your OSAP payment.
