Once a loan is signed by the University, payment of fees for any courses that are then added (e.g. waitlist or program adjustment) is the student’s responsibility. If any changes remain outstanding on the fee payment deadlines, the student will be deregistered from all classes. mtroyal.ca/Admission/MoneyMatters

Third Party Sponsorship

To be eligible for third-party billing, sponsoring agencies must complete and submit a sponsorship form prior to all applicable fee payment deadline dates. Acceptance of third-party billing is at the discretion of Mount Royal University. All sponsorship documents must be received prior to all applicable fee payment deadline dates.
