Deadlines for Global Seminars

Deadlines for each program differ but are generally between November and January. You can find more information about Global Seminars and individual deadlines on individual program pages.

Paying the Go Global Fee

The Go Global Fee is $415.00 and will be posted to your SSC account after the Application Deadline and will be due within 5 days of the fee being posted on your SSC account. You will be contacted by Go Global once the fee has been posted to your SSC and prompted to make the payment. Payment of this fee is made through the Student Service Centre (SSC). Once your fee is posted to the SSC account, the methods available to make payment are:

  • Interac Online (Scotiabank, Royal Bank, TD Canada Trust, BMO)
  • Electronic Funds Transfer (all other Canadian financial institutions) please note: this account MUST have chequing privileges; you can check this with your financial institution

You will not be able to make payment in-person at Brock Hall (Vancouver), University Centre (Okanagan), the Go Global office or your financial institution. You cannot pay this fee directly through your financial institution’s online banking interface as payments made through this method will only be counted towards your tuition and your Go Global fee will remain unpaid.
