Pre-Authorized Payment Plan (PPL)

The Pre-Authorized Payment Plan (PPL) is a payment program open to eligible graduate students only, who have NO DEBT from a prior Academic Year. There is no fee, or extra charge, to join the payment plan.

For students not on the PPL, fees are due according to the regular due dates.

The PPL will pick up the following fees that have been assessed in SOLUS on a per term basis and divide the amounts over the scheduled withdrawal dates of the plan; Tuition, Student Assistance Levy, Student Activity Fees, Residence Fees, Meal Plans, University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP), Library fines, Student Wellness Fees, service charges, late registration fee, and returned payment fees.

Monthly payments are automatically withdrawn on the specified date, there is no need to make online payments!
You just need to make sure there are enough funds in your bank account to cover the withdrawal. Please check your SOLUS account to verify the amount that will be withdrawn.

Self-enrol on SOLUS

Each Academic Year, you must self-enrol on SOLUS in a payment plan for that academic year if you wish to participate. For example, if you participated in 2017-2018, you will NOT be enrolled automatically in the Fall 2018 plan. Enrolment for the upcoming Fall/Winter PPL begins July 1st and ends September 30th each year.

How to Enrol

Enrol through SOLUS.

EXCEPTION: If you’re returning from a leave of absence and do not have outstanding debt, but the system says you are not eligible, complete the PPL enrolment form and send it to fees@queensu.ca to enroll in the PPL.

NOTE: Students do not need to enter banking information to enroll in the plan. But banking info MUST be entered BEFORE the first withdrawal or the student will be removed from the plan. It MUST be a CAD account held at a Canadian financial institution.  Accounts held in a foreign country, a line of credit account or a credit card account are ineligible for the PPL.

How to Add Banking Information

Details on how to add your banking information to your SOLUS student account can be found at: http://www.queensu.ca/registrar/solus/finances

Please click on the 'Enter/Review Bank Information' tab.

NEW! OSAP is directly remitted to Queen’s

Starting 2018-2019,

  • The Government of Ontario is requiring each time your enrolment is confirmed, all or a portion of your OSAP funding will be redirected to Queen’s to be applied to your tuition and education-related fees. The amount of your OSAP to be remitted to Queen’s will not exceed the value of your term tuition, Student Assistance Levy, and fees charged (excluding residence charges), 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 redirected to Queen’s or you can review your Student Fee Account – Net Cost View.

 

  • Note if OSAP is remitted to Queen’s directly, and if you are enrolled in the PPL, then the payment from OSAP will pay off scheduled upcoming monthly withdrawals. Example: If your PPL withdrawals for 4 months are $785.00 and your fall OSAP remittance to Queen’s is $2,500.00, then it will pay;
    • October        $785.00 – no auto-withdrawal from your bank account
    • November   $785.00 – no auto-withdrawal from your bank account
    • December    $785.00 – no auto-withdrawal from your bank account
    • January         $145.00-- $640 will be withdrawn from your bank account
What if my banking information changes?

Changes to banking info (in SOLUS) received by the last business day of the month will affect the next scheduled withdrawal (i.e. a change in banking info on last business day in November will affect the December withdrawal. A change in banking information on the 3rd of December will affect the January withdrawal. However, refer to the deadline dates included in the monthly reminders. Please click on the ‘Will I get Reminders About the Upcoming Withdrawal?’ tab for more details.

Where do I find my scheduled withdrawal amounts and dates?

All changes along with their respective due dates are shown on the Charges Due screen in SOLUS. This includes the scheduled PPL withdrawal amounts and dates.

More information on how to view your Charges Due screen can be found at http://www.queensu.ca/registrar/solus/finances . Please click on the Charges Due tab.

Will I get Reminders About the Upcoming Withdrawal?
There is no guarantee that you will be receiving a reminder on a monthly basis. It remains the students' responsibility to review their SOLUS account for all financial and academic transactions and their @queensu.ca email account for updates from Queen's University. It is recommended that students on the PPL review their Charges Due screen regularly, 5 days before the scheduled withdrawal is recommended.
 
What is the failed withdrawal policy?

Students will be removed automatically from the PPL after 3 unsuccessful payment withdrawal attempts (i.e. NSF, or any other reason) in one academic year (September to August). Students will have to wait for the next academic year to enroll in a PPL.

If you are removed from the payment plan one year for failed withdrawal attempts, you can re-enroll in the payment plan in subsequent years, but you will be removed automatically after only 1 unsuccessful payment withdrawal attempt!

NOTE: Debt from one academic year CANNOT be rolled into the payment plan of the next academic year! A student with debt from a prior year cannot join the payment plan.

How do I remove myself from the payment plan?

You can request to be removed from the PPL at any time. Just complete the PPL change form and send it to fees@queensu.ca.

Requests to be removed from the PPL received by the end of the month will affect the next scheduled withdrawal. (i.e. requesting to be removed on October 30th will affect the November 5th withdrawal. Requesting to be removed on November 3rd will affect the December 5th withdrawal).

If I complete in January, will I still have an amount owing?

Yes.

There are 4 withdrawals for the fall term: 05 October, 05 November, 05 December and 10 January.

The January withdrawal is for the fall term fees only and does not include any winter term fees. In addition to tuition, the fall term fees may also include activity fees, health and dental insurance, and UHIP (if applicable). In an attempt to keep the monthly withdrawals throughout the year as uniform as possible, a 4th withdrawal was needed for the fall fees. The last PPL withdrawal for the fall term fees is January 10th.
