How to Pay

You can use any of the payment methods listed below to pay your deposits and/or tuition and fees.

Online payment (TouchNet) - preferred method

You can make your payment online using the Touchnet web application.  Your payment is applied directly to your student account, so you can immediately see your account account balance. TouchNet also includes a feature that allows you to give someone else permission to pay... without giving them your username and password!

Touchnet supports Visa, MasterCard, and Interac Online for selected Canadian banks and credit unions.

To use TouchNet:

  1. Log into MyApps
  2. Click the Borealis icon
  3. Select Student Finance
  4. Click Make a Payment. 
  5. Review your account, and make a payment. 

In person

Payment may be made at Campus Services during regular business hours.  You can make your payment with credit card, debit (Interac), cheque, and cash. You may also present your Passport to Education or sponsorship letters.

Northern Lights College does not accept cash payments over $3000 per invoice. 

Online banking

Most banks and credit unions allow payment directly from your bank to the College.  To pay with online banking, go to the Bill Payments section, select Northern Lights College as the payee, and use your student number (7 digits) as the account number.

It takes a minimum of 2 business days for your bank to process the payment and send the funds to NLC for processing. If you completed your online banking payment less than 48 hours prior to your deadline, you must email your payment confirmation number to We strongly encourage you to pay within the timelines to accommodate this delay.


Campus Services can process your credit card payment over the phone. Call 1-866-INFO-NLC (866-463-6652).
