Laurentian University uses several methods to inform students about dues dates, including our website, WebAdvisor, LUNET and email.

If students have difficulties accessing their email account or WebAdvisor, they are to contact the Help Desk at 705.675.1151 ext. 2200 or it@laurentian.ca.

Students are responsible for paying their university fees within the prescribed time limits regardless of whether they receive an e-statement notification or not, because they have online access to their Account Summary at all times.

If fees are owing to the Laurentian University, registration for future terms is not permitted and academic documents (diplomas, transcripts, letters of permission, official confirmations, etc.) are not released, until the account is paid in full. Delinquent accounts are transferred to the University’s internal collection department at the end of a session.
