Payment Options

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

  • Credit/Debit card (VISA, MasterCard, American Express, VISA Debit or Debit MasterCard).
  • Online banking through selected Canadian banks and credit unions only. (This may take 2-5 business days to process.) You must make all payments in Canadian funds.
  • Flywire (for international payments only). You can pay the Canadian dollar fees in the currency of your choice. This may take 2-5 business days to process.

You must initiate payment by the application deadline.

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