Methods of Payment

Payment for tuition fees or monthly student account balances can be made to the school using the following payment methods:

Personal Cheque (drawn on a Canadian or US Bank)

Please make cheques payable to St. Michaels University School and clearly indicate your child’s name or student number on the memo portion of the cheque.

Bank Draft or Money Order

We accept bank drafts or money orders in Canadian or US currency. Please make bank drafts or money orders payable to St. Michaels University School and clearly indicate your child’s name or student number on the draft.


We will issue you a receipt confirming payment when we receive cash. Please do not send cash payments by mail.

Pre-Authorized Payments (Canadian bank accounts only)

To set up regular pre-authorized payments for tuition fees or monthly student account statements, complete the Pre-Authorized Payment Agreement form and return it to the school along with a voided cheque.

For account statements, payment is deducted automatically from a Canadian bank account on the 25th of the month, while tuition fee payments are deducted on the last day of the month.

Internet Banking Online Bill Payment (Canadian banks only)

  1. Log on to your bank account, and choose to add a new bill or payee.
  2. Search through the available payees for “St. Michaels University School” and add.
  3. Use the six-digit student number for account number. Please note that if you have more than one child at the school, each child does need to be set up separately.
  4. Once this is completed you will be able to pay directly from your bank account to the student account.

We recommend that online payments be made to the school a few days before the end of the month to ensure that they are processed on time. If the end of the month falls on a weekend, banks do not transmit the payment to the school until the next business day which may result in late payment fees being charged to your account.

Bank Wire Transfer

You may wish to transfer funds directly to the SMUS bank account. This can be done through your own bank by using our bank address and account number. You can get this information from the parent portal in the Current Student Registration section by clicking on the link called “Methods of Payment.”

Please be sure to quote the student’s name and grade on the transfer. This will enable us to credit the funds to the appropriate student’s account.

Please note that the Royal Bank of Canada deducts $15 off all incoming wire transfers as a service charge. You should factor the service charge into your payment amount when paying tuition fees by bank transfer.

Credit Card Payments

We accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express for tuition fees and monthly account payments.

Credit card payments can be made in two ways:

  • by direct payment to the school by calling Kim Jensen at 250-370-6166, or visiting the school for payment,
  • or through our online-payment processing partnership with Plastiq. You will need to set up an account, then direct your payment to St. Michaels University School. More information about Plastiq can be found on our fee payments page.

Please note that an administrative/platform fee is applied to all credit card transactions, 2.5-3.0% for Plastiq and 2.75% for in-office/over the phone transactions processed by St. Michaels University School.
