Students must choose a payment plan and agree to the new policies before registering for courses each semester.
If you are a continuing student and have a balance owing, and you do not already have an approved personal payment plan in place, then you must contact the Student Finance office before registering for courses.
*NEW plans for 2013-2014*
Pay in full
Payment in full at the beginning of each modular course.
Student loan plan
Student loans must be approved by September 30/January 30. If the student loan is not confirmed by these dates, the student must enter a personal payment plan. If the student loan is not sufficient to cover all the costs of each semester, the student must pay the account in full by the end of October/February. Exceptions will be made for students who have Saskatchewan student loans who enter into a monthly pre-authorized payment plan.
Loan confirm date
Student loan funds will be sent directly to the school following Provincial Student Loan guidelines. Student loan funds can be directed to the student provided the student's account is paid in full or a pre-authorized payment is in place.
Personal payment plan
A personal plan may be made between the student and the Student Finance office. Approval for such plans will be granted by the Student Financial Adviser prior to Registration Day. $100 payment plan fee will be assessed each semester. Plans may not extend past the last day of class each semester. Please note: personal payment plans are at the discretion of the Student Financial Adviser.
Students can view their account balance at any time by logging onto Briercrest Live. After logging on, go to "Finances" then "Generate a Statement". A paper statement will be placed in the student's box for on-campus students and mailed to off-campus students at the end of the month. Payment is due regardless of whether or not a paper statement has been received. If a student wishes a third party to receive the financial statement, please contact the finance department. Account information will not be given to a third party without the student's consent. This includes parents, spouses, family members and sponsors.
Students with outstanding balances will not be issued any documents including degree parchments, transcripts, or T2202a.
A finance charge of 1.5% per month or 18% per annum will be applied to all past due accounts.
Externally funded students
If the student's education is being funded by an organization or agency, the student must make available grades, finance, and enrolment and attendance information when that agency requests it.
If you have questions about putting together your finances for school, contact the student financial adviser.
Please note that polices and rates may change without notice.
