Billing and Deadlines

Billing

By registering for classes, VIU students accept responsibility for all semester charges that should be paid in full by the payment deadline each term to avoid financial penalties. Students are responsible for checking their billing information through their Student Portal and keeping their contact information up to date.

Failure to pay any outstanding balance will result in an academic and financial hold, a late fee of 3% of the balance due per month (up to $500 for a semester), and normal university collection activity.

For more information on how to submit a payment using VIU Student Portal and other methods of payment, please click here.
