International Tuition Payment Options

We have three options for international students to pay their tuition from outside of Canada: Convera, PayMyTuition, and credit card. You can learn more about each option below.


  • Convera platform allows students from all countries outside of Canada to make the Canadian dollar payment in the currency of their choice at their local bank. The local bank will transfer the payment in your local currency to Convera. The payment is then converted into Canadian dollars and directed to the University of Alberta.
  • The payment will be applied to your student account within 3-5 business days.
  • To initiate your payment, please access the Convera.
