How to pay your tuition

Fall term tuition is due on August 31, 2021. Accounts overdue after the Fee Deadline will be subject to the College’s late payment and overdue process.

Bow Valley College does not accept in-person payments (cash, debit card, credit card) for tuition at any campus. You can pay your fees online through your bank, with a credit card, at most bank branches or ATMs, or by mail with a cheque or money order. Here's how:

Only available to pay your confirmation deposit and tuition fees.

  • Log into your MyBVC.ca account
  • Click 'Registration'
  • Click 'Make a Payment'
  • Use your Visa or Mastercard to make payment

If you plan on paying your tuition with student loans, please refer to our Financial Aid page.

If your loan is being sent directly to Bow Valley College, you are not required to make a payment except when your loan does not cover your full tuition/fees. Funding may arrive after the deadline and can arrive in installments. Processing can take up to three weeks once your loan has been disbursed by the government. 

If your loan is being paid directly to you, you are responsible for making payment to the college by the fee deadline.

Your loan may not cover all of your tuition for the term. Check your loan disbursement schedule for the balance that you are responsible for.

You can pay your tuition through online banking, mobile banking, or your bank or credit union's mobile app.

  • Log into your bank's website, mobile app, or mobile site.
  • Look for the "Bill Payments" section and choose the option to add a new bill or payee. 
  • To set up Bow Valley College as a bill payment option, search and select "Bow Valley College."
  • Your account number is your Bow Valley College student ID number (and may include up to the first seven letters of your last name).
  • Choose "Bow Valley College" from your list of bill payments, confirm the correct student ID number, and make the payment.
  • Most banks will provide you with a confirmation or reference number after you make the payment.

Bank payments take 3-4 days to be transferred from your bank to Bow Valley College and will not appear immediately in your student account. Make your payment before the fee deadline to avoid overdue charges. Confirmation fee payments should be made with enough time to allow for processing in order to avoid losing your admission offer.

You can pay your tuition and fees through most Canadian banks or credit unions through telephone banking by adding Bow Valley College as a bill payment. 

  • Call your bank's telephone banking. The number is often on the back of your bank card.
  • Follow the instructions on the automated system or speak with a telephone banking representative to add "Bow Valley College" as a bill payment. Your account number is your six-digit Bow Valley College student number (and for some banks may include the first seven (7) letters of your last name).
  • Pay your tuition like any other bill payment using the automated system or by speaking with a banking representative.
  • Most banks will provide you with a confirmation or reference number when you make your payment.

Bank payments take 3-4 days to be transferred from your bank to Bow Valley College and will not appear immediately in your student account. Make your payment before the fee deadline to avoid overdue charges. Confirmation fee payments should be made with enough time to allow for processing in order to avoid losing your admission offer.

You can mail your cheque, money order, or bank draft drawn from a Canadian bank or credit union payable to “Bow Valley College." Include your Bow Valley College student ID number or Alberta Student Number in the memo field.

  1. Make sure you are registered in courses for the upcoming term.
  2. Request a sponsorship letter of intent (LOI) from Registrar Services by email (registrar@bowvalleycollege.ca), phone (403-410-1400), or in-person at the Registrar's Office (South Campus, ground floor). We can email the form to you directly, or with your permission, send the form directly to your sponsor.
  3. Your sponsor needs to confirm on the LOI which fees they will cover and return a signed copy to Student Accounts by fax (403-297-4887) or email (studentaccounts@bowvalleycollege.ca).
  4. Once the form is received, the coverage will be added to your account and your sponsor will be invoiced accordingly. You are responsible for the timely payment of any fees that your sponsor does not cover.

You can send a secure payment link to a family member, friend, or employer that allows them to make a credit card payment online for your confirmation deposit or tuition without requiring your MyBVC login information.

  1. Sign into your MyBVC student portal.
  2. Click on Registration and then click on Make a payment.

  5. The recipient will receive an email with a payment link and will have the option of accepting or rejecting the payment request.

When you set-up a third-party payment, they will see your name, so they know they are paying the right student's account.
