Holland College changes credit card policy
Monday, August 13, 2012
Charlottetown, PE - Effective September 1, 2012, Holland College will no longer accept credit cards for tuition payments and residence fees. Similar policies are in place in other post-secondary institutions across the country, Holland College President Brian McMillan announced today.
"The change is a cost saving measure intended to reduce the number and amount of transaction fees charged to the college by credit card companies. In making this decision, Holland College joins a growing number of educational institutions that have implemented similar policies." he said.
In an effort to ensure that students still have convenient payment options, the college is now listed as an online banking payee with all major banks and most credit unions in P.E.I. This means that students will be able to pay their fees by online banking, telephone banking, wire transfer, debit card, or cash. International students who do not have a Canadian bank account for online or telephone banking will be able to make payments with Western Union's StudentPay, accessible through the college web site.
Credit cards will still be accepted for application fees, confirmation fees, transcript fees, book store purchases, short courses, continuing education payments, boot camps, and donations to the Holland College Foundation.
For more information about payments, please contact the Admissions Office.
