Making a Fee Payment From outside of Canada

The University of Toronto has authorized Convera to process incoming international student tuition and residence fee payments for the University of Toronto via Convera. There are bank-to-bank payment and online options for non-Canadian denominated credit cards (Master card, Visa, Unionpay). This is the safest and most secure fee payment option and allows the University to return the fee payment if the student does not study at the University. Convera is the new name for WU GlobalPay for Students service and starting October 10, 2022 students will see the Convera name and logo on this service.  Outside of renaming, the fee payment service remains unchanged.

Note: The University does not authorize other payment services to handle incoming international student fee payments.  The University does not accept payments by wire transfer and/or demand draft/money order and reserves the right to hold or return these payments.

  • Pay for tuition at a local bank at a competitive exchange rate. Your bank may charge a transaction fee.
  • Select the appropriate currency, and pay the equivalent in the Canadian dollar amount.

International Student Admission Deposit 

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 by credit card 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.
