Payment of Fees

Fees are charged on a per term basis and due dates are made available on our Payments webpage.

Tuition fees are assessed to registered students based on course registration. Fees are due by the due date regardless of whether an invoice/statement has been viewed. Full account information, updated regularly, is available online, by following directions on the Laurier Online Registration Information System (LORIS).

Students wishing to opt out of optional incidental fees must follow the procedures and deadlines established for those optional fees. Notifying Service Laurier of your intention to opt-out is not sufficient.

Payment options can be found at For details on tuition fees and invoicing, refer to

  • Having an overdue balance on their student financial account may have both academic and non-academic consequences (Financial Hold), including, without limitation, graduating, accessing final grades, adding courses, registering for future terms, accessing a transcript of grades and/or referral to a third-party collection agency.
