Payment verification

As an international student, you can pay your fees prior to class enrolment to receive payment confirmation through Mosaic. Please note: payment does not guarantee study permit.

You must accept your offer of admission by following the instructions in your official offer letter and before you can request a verification letter. For instructions on accepting your offer, please refer to OUAC.

Accessing your verification letter

After your tuition fee payment has been submitted, it takes approximately 7-10 business days for the payment to reflect on Mosaic under ‘Finances’.

You can request your payment verification letter in Mosaic under Student Center > Admissions > View letters > Payment confirmation, once both your offer of admission and payment has been processed. The name shown on your letter will be the same as you have it in Mosaic.

You will receive a notification email when the payment confirmation letter is available. Requests are processed once per day at 7 p.m.
