Make a payment

Find out how to use the University's payment portals to pay fees and levies, and pay for course materials, field trips, key deposits, and transcripts.

The University's preferred payment methods are our two secure payment portals for:

  • paying fees and levies
  • making other payments such as for key deposits, field trips, course materials, and transcripts.

Paying fees and levies

In addition to tuition fees, all students are charged additional compulsory fees such as levies. Find out more about fees and our fee policies.

When to pay your fees

Annual fees are due the Friday before your first course starts. For most students this will be the Friday before Trimester 1.

If you are unable to pay your fees by the due date, contact student-finance@vuw.ac.nz.

Pay online through the payment portal

Our online payment portal accepts Account2Account, Visa/MasterCard, and Western Union, including UnionPay.

Payments made to the University by credit card and debit card will incur a 'convenience' fee of 1.9%. We apply this fee to recover the charges we incur for processing credit and debit card transactions. For all transactions, an alternative payment method will be available. The convenience fee will be applied to transactions for goods and services, including domestic and international tuition fees. Find out more about this fee.

Payment by a third party

A third party, such as a family member or employer, can use the payment portal to pay your fees on your behalf. You must first use the payment portal to generate a payment request by selecting 'third party payment request' as your payment method, then send the payment request to the third party.

Payments other than fees

If you need to pay for something like a replacement ID card or a transcript—basically anything other than tuition fees and levies—you need to use our second payment portal.

Payment receipts

When you make a payment through one of our payment portals, we’ll send you an email that includes a link to the receipt for your payment. It’s a good idea to keep this email in case you need your receipt in the future.

If you have deleted the email receipt, contact the Student Finance team on student-finance@vuw.ac.nz so they can resend you a copy of it.
