The ORPAS processing fee is $180 plus an institutional levy of $90 for each university selection. All fees and levies are non-refundable. The amount submitted must correctly reflect the number of university selections made.
The institutional fees, collected by ORPAS but remitted to the universities, assist the universities in covering a portion of the costs associated with the admissions assessment. Fees are assessed by university, not by the number of programs selected at each university.
The total fee, including the ORPAS processing fee, is as follows (all amounts are in Canadian dollars):
Each transcript request costs $12, with some exceptions.
All payments for applications must be received by ORPAS no later than January 18, 2013.
All fees are non-refundable. Applications will not be forwarded to the universities until full payment has been received by the OUAC. Partial payments will not be accepted. Fees for withdrawn university choices are not refunded.
Payment is part of the final “Submit” process and is accepted by:
- Credit card (MasterCard, VISA or American Express)
- Cheque or money order (Note for international applicants: International cheques, money orders and bank drafts must be in Canadian funds, include the bank address, and have the bank number, transit number and account number encoded on the bottom to be accepted.)
- Online or telephone banking through selected Canadian banks and credit unions. All payments must be made in Canadian funds.
- Western Union bank-to-bank transfer (for international payments only). Applicants are able to pay the Canadian dollar fees in the currency of their choice using a simple and secure way of initiating a payment electronically.
