Pay your deposits

First-year students
You must pay your $425 Tuition Deposit, before you can register. You are not required to pay a Registration Deposit ($125) for the Fall or Winter semester for your first year.

Continuing students
You must pay a Registration Deposit which is $125 per semester, so to register for both the fall and winter semester you will have to pay $250. The deposit will be credited toward your tuition; however, if you choose to drop all courses for the semester Mount Royal will retain the deposit.

If you are a current student who has applied and been accepted to a new program, you are required to pay the $425 Tuition Deposit.

How to pay deposits
To pay by Visa or MasterCard, go to Pay Deposits on the Register & Pay tab in MyMRU and select which deposit you wish to pay. You will be prompted to enter your credit card information.

To pay by debit, cash, money order or credit card, you can go to the Office of the Registrar (A101).

Paying your deposit through online banking will result in a delay in your registration due to manual processing. If you pay through online banking, you must email to notify them that a deposit has been paid and for which term.


When can I register?

First-year students
You can register for your courses once you have received a (Conditional) Offer of Admission and paid your $425 Tuition Deposit. Registration usually begins mid-April for fall and winter semester and end of March or Early April or spring and summer semesters.

Current students
Continuing students are assigned a registration access date based on the percentage of completion towards their credentialed program (including transfer credits). The more credits that you accumulate, the earlier you will be able to register.Registration for all semesters begins mid-March.

If you pay your Registration Deposit on or after your Registration Access Date, you can register immediately. If your payment is made prior to your Registration Access Date, you must wait until it is your day to register.

Students enroled in non-credentialed programs are assigned the last day of registration for continuing students. Non-credentialed programs include: Academic Upgrading, Indigenous University Bridging Program, Bachelor of Arts - Undeclared, Bachelor of Education - minor undeclared, Bachelor of Science Computer Science (University Transfer), Open Studies and University Entrance Option.

If you are a current student who has applied and been accepted to a new program, you are required to pay the $425 tuition deposit before you will be eligible to register for courses in your new program.


Get advised

We recommend that you contact your academic advisor prior to selecting your courses.
