Paying Your Deposit

Your deposit secures your place at Canisius. The deposit for students not living on campus is $200; the deposit is $400 for those living on campus. You may pay your deposit in one of three ways. You may use the enclosed deposit form to send your deposit by mail, you may call us at 1-800-843-1517 or 716-888-2200 to pay with a credit card by phone, or you may pay your deposit online


Once you have paid your deposit, a letter will be sent to you about registering for classes and will include the name of your advisor. You will need to contact your advisor to arrange an appointment to register. If distance is a problem, a phone appointment can be arranged. Registration for the fall term will begin in late May/early June, depending on your program of study.  Registration for the Spring term will being in November.


If you plan to live on campus, please be sure to send in the enclosed transfer student housing form once you have paid your deposit. We cannot accept your transfer housing form until your deposit has been paid. If you would like to learn more about the housing at Canisius, we encourage you to visit our campus and/or visit the Residence Life Web site.

Congratulations on your acceptance and welcome to the Canisius family!  This year’s pool of applicants is our most talented to date, so you should feel proud of your accomplishments. 

We hope you will take advantage of the many opportunities offered at Canisius.  The personal interaction with faculty, community atmosphere on campus and easy access to all that Buffalo has to offer are some of the things our students like best about being students here.
