Payment methods

Various methods of payment are available. The student name and number should be clearly clearly stated to ensure the correct fees account is credited. A copy of the deposit slip should be faxed to the Fees Office, where relevant.

  • M65 form

    The preferred method of payment is via the M65 form. (A hard copy of this form can be found at the bottom of UCT fees correspondence.) This should be used whenever possible to ensure prompt credit of payment to the student fees account.

    This form may only be used at Standard Bank branches.

    Don't forget to ensure that your name and student number are on both sections of the form.

    Download the M65 form.

  • Cheque

    Your name and student number must appear on the back of the cheque. Cheques should be crossed, made payable to the "University of Cape Town" and sent to:

    No changes on cheques will be accepted even if the account holder has signed the changes in full. Any attempted cancellation or change on the cheque will give rise to the cheque being rejected by the bank.

    Post-dated cheques will not be accepted.

    A R150 administration fee will be charged on all unpaid cheques.
