The All You Care To Eat meal plan model has been successfully introduced at other universities across the country, including all the universities in Maritime Canada. Once you’re in the dining hall—either with your plan or by paying for a meal with cash, debit, or credit card—you are free to explore the options available to you and enjoy your visit to the fullest without worrying about the cost of individual items. For students on meal plans, this alleviates the stress of constantly budgeting meal card money, while for both plan holders and visitors, this means more flexibility to enjoy favourite foods, explore new options, or combine items to create a personalized dining experience.
Focusing on a real food concept, the new dining options will offer quality, nutritious and assorted choices, enriched by exhibition and scratch cooking (less packaged ingredients, more items made from scratch, and meals cooked to order), enhanced vegan and vegetarian choices, a greater variety of locally sourced products and healthier choices. There will be three levels of plans to accommodate different lifestyles and schedules:
The Freedom Plan + $200 STU Dollars – Value and Maximum Flexibility – $3,744
The 19-Meal Plan + $200 STU Dollars – Controlling Your Budget – $3,536
The 10-Meal Plan + $500 STU Dollars – The Basic – $3,016
STU Dollars are flex dollars that can be used at other locations on campus, such as the Tim Horton’s and Subway outlets, or used to pay for visitors’ meals. Payment at all food locations can also be made by cash, debit or credit cards. For those not living in residence, meal plans will be available for purchase from the Registrar’s Office or individuals may purchase a single meal in one of the dining halls at the following prices:
Breakfast: $6.54 + tax = $7.52
Lunch: $8.82 + tax = $10.14
Dinner: $12.41 + tax = $14.27
|OTHER RESIDENCE FEES ARE:|
|Damage Deposit (refundable)||$250|
Intersession and Summer Session 2016
Payment of tuition fees for Intersession and Summer Session must be made at the Registrar’s Office prior to the start of classes. Tuition fees are as follows:
3 credit-hour course – $618
6 credit-hour course – $1236

Differential fee (International Students) – $612 additional per 3 credit hours for 2016
Please note: Effective September 1st, 2009 ended the option of using credit cards to pay tuition and residence fees. This change saves the university more than $100,000 annually in transaction fee payments to credit card companies. Students will still be able to pay their tuition and residence fees through a variety of options: student loan, cheque, cash, money order, debit (in person or internet banking) and bank wire.
Payment of tuition and fees may be made through several methods. They include the following: student loans, cheque, cash, money order, debit (through internet banking or in person) and bank wire.
Federal and Provincial Student Loans
Students who apply for and are granted federal or provincial student loans can use these funds to pay their tuition and fees. For Information on how to apply for student loans, please visit the following website: http://www.canlearn.ca/eng/index.shtml
Most Provincial and Federal loans are now being processed on the NEW on-line Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (ECE) Portal including the Province of New Brunswick. This means there will be no paper loan document at Financial Services to pick up.
The new Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (ECE) system allows the University to electronically deduct the amount owing to the University from your loan as long as your course registration is complete.
If you have any questions about the status of your student loan, please contact your provincial loan provider.
If you are aware that your loan is going to be delayed for any reason, and that you may not make the payment deadline, it is your responsibility to provide a proof of assessment notice confirming your funding.
Payment may be made in person at Financial Services at any time by cash, debit or money order. Office hours are 8:30 to 4:30 Monday to Friday.
Payment may also be made via internet banking though several of Canada’s chartered banks. St. Thomas will be notified of the payment within 24 hours and your student account will be updated accordingly. Currently, payment can be made at the following:
The account number required to set up your account for internet banking includes your six or seven digit STU identification number as well as the first four or three letters of your last name. For example:
Six Digit – John Smith STU ID 912345 would have an internet banking account of 912345SMIT.
Seven Digit – John Smith STU ID 1012345 would have an internet banking account of 1012345SMI.
Payment can also be made at any Bank of Montreal branch via First Bank Bill Payment Service using the attached form. St. Thomas will be notified with 24 hours of the payment. Payment can be wired directly to St. Thomas University from any financial institution using the following information:
