Installment plan

All tuition and other assessed fees for the full academic year are generally due on the official program start date; however, you may be eligible to pay your tuition in two installments.

The two-payment plan is an installment plan used at Sask Polytech allowing those students who qualify to defer a portion of their tuition and fees. To take advantage of this plan, you must contact Enrolment Services preferably in person and pay a $100 fee.

You can pay your tuition in two installments if you are enrolled in a certificate, diploma, advanced diploma or degree program and are not:
  • Paying through a student loan or other funding agency whereby tuition and fees are paid directly to Saskatchewan Polytechnic.
  • Enrolled in a certificate of achievement or applied certificate program
  • Participating in a co-operative education program when the second installment is due during a work term.

See the Tuition and Fees Procedure 1214 (pdf)for more information.

*Domestic and international students are eligible

Yes. A $100 fee is charged.

Domestic students

First payment
Is due on the official start date of your program and includes:

  • Half of your core tuition
  • All mandatory fees (including Co-op work terms, if applicable)
  • $100 deferral fee
  • $100 late fee (if you were charged before you set up the installment plan)

*The seat deposit and any other tuition pre-payments you have made will be deducted from the first installment amount.

Second payment
Is due the first week after the winter break (a specific date is given when you enroll in the two-payment plan) and includes:

  • Remainder of your core tuition

*If the second payment is late, a $100 late fee is charged and a financial hold will be placed on your account. 

International students

Contact Enrolment Services for more information.

Set up the installment plan with Enrolment Services before your official program start date.
Contact Enrolment Services, preferably in person before your official program start date.

Late payment charge

A late payment charge will be assessed on past-due accounts.  The interest rate charged will be reviewed annually by Financial Services. 

Failure to pay tuition and other assessed fees may result in students being discontinued from class and will result in the placement of a financial hold on the student account, meaning:

  • the student may not apply or register at any Saskatchewan Polytechnic campus until the past-due account has been paid, and
  • transcripts, grades, certificates, diplomas or degrees, and any other completion documentation will be withheld until full payment is made.

Sask Polytech may ask you to discontinue in your program, if you do not pay your tuition and do not qualify for the two-payment plan. If you are discontinued from class, you are still responsible to pay all non-refundable tuition and fees. If Sask Polytech is unable to collect your fees, we will send your account to a third-party collection agency, which may have a negative impact on your credit rating. Sask Polytech will remove the financial hold once tuition is paid in full or once you are approved in the two-payment plan.

In exceptional circumstances the dean has authority to waive tuition and/or program other fees. The registrar or manager of Enrolment Services has authority to waive Sask Polytech administrative and application fees. Third-party fees cannot be waived (e.g., Students' Association, health and dental).
