Tuition fees

How do I pay my fees if Student Central is not open for in-person payments?

Tuition payments can be made using the bill payment feature on your financial institution’s website.

  1. Log on to your bank’s website
  2. Add The University of Winnipeg – Tuition as a bill payee
  3. Use your seven-digit student number as the account number

(International payments can be made via flywire.com.)

U2020W fees are due Jan. 22.
Note: The fee deadline is NOT the same as the Add/Drop Period (which ended on Jan. 19). Students who drop a U2020W course January 19-22 and onwards are still responsible for paying all of the course fees.

SINs and tax receipts 

The Canada Revenue Agency requires all designated educational institutions to provide students’ Social Insurance Numbers (SIN) on the T2202 tax forms and so The University of Winnipeg is requesting students’ SIN in order to comply with this requirement. There is a module in WebAdvisor and Student Planning through which students add their SIN to their University record. Please follow these steps:

  1. Login to WebAdvisor
  2. Click on Current Students
  3. Click on Student Planning/Registration or Student Finance
  4. Choose Social Insurance Number (SIN) Information
  5. Click on the pencil/edit icon on the right side
  6. Type in your nine-digit SIN and save

The University will begin the process of creating the T2202 tax forms on Jan. 22, in order to have the forms ready to be posted on WebAdvisor on February 28. It is very important that students provide their SIN before Jan. 22.

Grades

Grades for Fall Term classes will be posted on WebAdvisor on Jan. 27. Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, University of Winnipeg students may choose how their grades will affect their grade point average (GPA) calculation for the Fall 2020 term.  For details, please see Final Grade Options.
