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.
