Tuition Payment Plan

About the Tuition Payment Plan

VIU offers tuition payment plans to eligible students who wish to finance their tuition in multiple installment payments. There is a non-refundable fee of $30.00 per installment. Failure to pay any outstanding balance will result in an academic hold on the student’s account, accrual of late fees, and ineligibility to apply for a payment plan in future semesters.

Note: International Students who are in their first semester of study at VIU are not eligible to apply for a payment plan.

Applying for a Tuition Payment Plan

Eligible students can apply for a tuition payment plan through the student portal.

You are eligible for a payment plan if:

  1. You are not a first-semester international student;
  2. There is not a financial hold on your account;
  3. You are enrolled in a graduate or undergraduate degree or certificate program at VIU;
  4. You have registered for courses in the current term and your total bill is more than $1,000;
  5. You are not on the waiting list for any courses; and
  6. The installment application deadline has not passed.

After you have received confirmation of approval of your Tuition Payment Plan Application, you can make your first installment payment online through your Student Portal or at the Student Accounts Office.
