If you are a new International student (a student who requires a study permit to study in Canada), you are required to make a non-refundable $1000 admission deposit as a part of accepting your offer of admission. You must also accept your offer of admission through your JOIN portal. The admission deposit will be applied to your student account and towards your tuition fees. Paying an admission deposit allows your spot at the university to be held. 

Instructions for making your admission deposit will be posted in your JOIN portal as a part of your offer of admission information. This amount must be paid in full and you will be able to pay your deposit either by credit card or by bank draft only. Your deposit due date is the same as the offer response date outlined in your offer of admission. After your payment has been processed, you will be able to see that your payment has been received in ACORN.
