The Campus offers a number of undergraduate scholarships and bursaries. The Campus also has a tuition fee payment plan that is available to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. There is a fee to sign up for the plan.

Work on Campus
There are a few opportunities to work on Campus.  Note however that these are not normally available for first year undergraduate students.

Special Notes 
If you are a regional student you must contact your Ministry of Education (or equivalent) before leaving your territory if you expect to be sponsored for any (or all) of the fees associated with your course of study. Sponsorship is NOT automatic and would normally only guarantee payment for a portion your fees.  Your Ministry of Education (or equivalent) should provide a letter indicating what portion of your fees will be paid on your behalf, and the balance will be your responsibility.

The Bursary processes credit/debit card payments at the Cashier in the Administration Building on the Main Campus for all tuition and housing charges.   The Bursary accepts all major credit cards except American Express.

A third-party processor (TouchNet) accepts all credit card transactions on behalf of the University via the Student Account Center on the web.

NB: Notes/cheques in British Virgin Island, Guyana, Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago currency cannot be negotiated.

Wire Transfer
Payment can be made via wire transfer. Requests for the Campus’ banking details to facilitate this should be sent to StudentAccounts@cavehill.uwi.edu

On-line Banking
Payments can also be made (provided that you currently have an account with the bank) using the on-line banking facilities of:
·         RBC Royal Bank of Canada, or
·         Bank of Nova Scotia.

Fees can also be paid into any branch of Republic Bank (Barbados) Limited (using the special UWI banking slips) and at any Sure Pay outlet.

NB: It takes two (2) business days for the Campus to receive payments made through Commercial Banks and Sure Pay, so you must make these payments in time for them to reach the Campus by the deadline dates given.
