Tuition Payment

Direct from High School and College/University Transfer

To be officially registered for courses, students are required to pay a non-refundable deposit of $400 or $200 per term (with an exception for students who apply to OSAP and have all supported documents in place by June 30th). It is strongly recommended that students register for both terms to confirm course selection.

Band sponsored students do not need to provide the per term deposit as long as a sponsorship letter is on file. Please contact your Education Counsellor to send a sponsorship letter to the Student Accounts Officer at accounts@algomau.ca.

The balance of your tuition is due on August 9, 2019. Students receiving OSAP will have an automatic extension to September 27, 2019 for fees. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure their account balance is paid-in-full by the deadline and that their OSAP or other resources are sufficient to cover any fees.
