Payment Options

Online/Telephone Banking

You may pay your student tuition through online or telephone banking as if you are paying a utility bill.
  • Step 1: Contact your bank to ensure you are set up for online/telephone banking if you are not currently using the service (UPEI does not accept payments from the National Bank)
  • Step 2: Add "University of PEI" as a payee on your payment profile (note: we recommend typing "University" in the search box and choosing from the list that appears)
  • Step 3: Use your Student ID Number with an S (for student) in front of it as your account number (this is an alpha-numeric ID with the S followed by 4 - 6 characters; ex. S123456). Please drop the leading 0 if your ID number provided is 7 characters.
  • Step 4: Enter the amount to be paid and the date on which you would like to pay
  • Step 5: Complete the transaction as if you are paying a utility bill
Note: You may post-date your payment close to the tuition payment deadline. Most financial institutions will accept post-dated online/telephone banking payments. However, please keep in mind that it may take 2-3 business days for UPEI to receive your payment from the financial institution so your date should reflect this. If your account balance is not cleared by the payment deadline, you will be subjected to a late fee and interest charges of 9% per annum. Along the same lines, it is important to note that if you are paying an outstanding balance prior to registering, it must be done 2-3 days in advance of the registration date.

Western Union

International students can now pay fees through Western Union.

Wire Transfer

Arrangements can be made to transfer funds via wire transfer through your bank to the University’s account. Please see the Bank Wire Information page for details on the required banking information. Please include your Student ID Number, Full First and Last Name and Date of Birth under the Details section when making the wire payment. Wire transfers usually take 5-7 days to be deposited to the University of PEI’s bank account. When the funds are received, we will apply the payment to your account based on the information included in the wire transfer. Please be advised that some banks charge a handling fee. In those cases, this charge may be deducted from the original amount wired.
