How to pay your Tuition and General fees
A) Payment by mail:
Mail your cheque, bank draft or money order to AUArts’s Cashier Office:
Alberta University of the Arts
1407 - 14 Avenue NW
Calgary, AB, Canada T2N 4R3
(Please note that during the COVID-19 shutdown, the Cashier Office is not open, but mail is being re-directed appropriately).
B) Two different methods online
1) Online Banking
Add "Alberta University of the Arts” as a payee on your online bill payment profile with any of the following Canadian financial institutions:
- ATB Financial
- Bank of Montreal (BMO)
- Canadian Western Bank
- First Calgary Savings
- Manulife Financial
- Royal Bank (RBC)
- Servus Credit Union
- TD CanadaTrust
Creating your account number
Your account number for online banking is your nine-digit AUArts student number (this includes any initial zeroes) and followed by the first five characters of your last name. Name characters are not case-sensitive.
Making your payment
When making a payment, enter the amount owing on your student account by completing the transaction according to your financial institution's online banking instructions. You can look up your balance through AUArts webService.
Be aware that it can take three-to-five business days for funds to transfer to the university and show as posted in your online student account.
However, AUArts recognizes the day you initiate the payment at your bank, so payments initiated on or before the Term fee deadline will not be subject to late payment penalty.
Payments initiated after the Term fee deadline may be subject to late payment penalty.
2) Credit Card (MasterCard and Visa) via AUArts webService
(NOTE: Credit Card payment for tuition fees is not an option for paying in-person)
Logon to the Student Account Center and follow the steps. You can also authorize someone else to pay your fees, with their Credit Card, from the Student account Centre.
NOTE: If paying by Credit Card you will be charged a non-refundable service charge (minimum $3.00).
