Internet or telephone banking

  • All major banks and credit unions offer Internet and telephone banking where you can pay your fees 24 hours a day
  • Register with your bank to make online bill payments
  • Once you have registered with your bank, your student ID number (201XXXXXX) is the account number required to make payment
  • Allow two business days for bank processing

Online (credit card payments)

  • Payable through Plastiq
  • Eligible payments include:
    • Residence Fees
    • Tuition and additional fees (once registered in courses)
  • Acceptable forms of payment include Visa or MasterCard.
  • Plastiq charges a plaform fee (currently 1.99%) to your credit card.
  • Plastiq is an independent third party service provider that you can use to pay your tuition. Ensure that you understand Plastiq’s Terms of Service before using their services.
  • Attention: Disputes regarding Plastiq’s services must be resolved between Plastiq and the student. Mount Royal does not guarantee Plastiq’s services. Using Plastiq may result in delays in Mount Royal receiving payment. Students remain responsible for any payments which Plastiq fails to make on their behalf.

Due to processing time, allow two to three business days for your payment to appear on your MyMRU account. As long as your payment is made by 8 p.m. (Calgary time) on the posted Fee Deadline your payment will be considered complete. Check your credit card and MyMRU account to ensure that your payment has been processed.
Please be advised that payment with certain types of credit cards processed through Plastiq may result in cash advance fees assessed by your bank.

This is anticipated to be a short-term issue. In the interim, MRU advises you review your credit card statement carefully for cash-advance related charges on any Plastiq transactions and contact your bank to reverse those charges if presented.

Questions or concerns with these charges should be directed to Plastiq.
