Payment Options

Payment is part of the final “Submit” process. The OUAC accepts the following payment options:

  • Credit card (VISA, MasterCard or American Express). VISA and MasterCard debit cards are not accepted.
  • Online banking through selected Canadian banks and credit unions only (this normally takes 2-5 business days). All payments must be made in Canadian funds.
  • Western Union Business Solutions – GlobalPay for Students (bank-to-bank transfer for international payments only). You can pay the Canadian dollar fees in the currency of your choice.

Payment must be initiated by the application deadline.

Fraudulent use of credit cards or demanding/obtaining unauthorized application fee reimbursement is considered unethical.
