Find all you need to know about how to pay your tuition and fees, including: 

Tuition Due Dates

The tuition due date for each term typically happens during the first week of the start of the term.

Make sure you pay your tuition and fees so that they are received and applied to your LORIS account by the due date to avoid late fees:

  • Sept. 7, 2023 (fall 2023)
  • Jan. 8, 2024 (winter 2024)
  • May 6, 2024 (spring/intersession/summer 2024 terms)

Students can verify payment is received on LORIS > Student Services > Student Account Summary

Monthly late payment penalties of 1.25% will be added on all unpaid balances after the due date.

Tuition Fees Assessment

Tuition fees are assessed during the following months: 

  • Fall term: late July and early August
  • Winter term: late November
  • Spring/Summer term: late March

Adding or dropping courses may change the amount due. Check your account status in LORIS anytime after the assessment date.

How to Pay

Make sure payments are made through Laurier approved payment options to avoid delays and/or possible holds and late fees. Payments not received and reflected on your student account on or prior to the due date are considered late.

Proxy Users

If you have someone paying fees on your behalf, you can set up proxy users to have access to your account information and to receive reminders.
