Q1. Where can I find information regarding methods of payments, deadline dates, and late payment charges?
A1. You will find this information in the Registration Procedures on line here.
Q2. If I am paying with student loan, do I have to pay a late payment charge if my loan is not available on the deadline for fees payment?
A2. If you applied for your student loan at least three weeks prior to the deadline for fees payment and if your loan covers all your fees there will be no late payment charge
Q3. If I have a student loan can I pay my fees by another method?
A3. Yes. However, if you wish to do that you must do so by the deadline date published in the methods of payment section of the Registration procedures.
Q4. If I pay by another method after the date published in the Registration Procedures booklets, will the amount still be deducted from my loan?
A4. Yes. The fees will also be deducted from your loan and you will have to wait until automatic refunds are done after the 100% drop deadline. The refund will be done back through the method of payment.

A5. Another tuition voucher will be forwarded to you for the credit remaining.
