Question about acceptance

A photo of prmly prmly
I'm a bit confused and I need some help!
I got accepted to Bishop's University and I'm prompted to either accept/defer acceptance. In order for Bishop's to able to access my transcripts (I don't have an OUAC number as I'm from BC) to offer me a scholarship, I need to accept their offer. However, I have to put down a $100 non-refundable deposit and I'm sort of iffy on this considering I'm not even set on Bishop's. Also, if I accept their offer, does that mean I'm in the system to attend next fall?

If you accept their offer, that will indicate to them that you're set on going there and they'd have you in the system for the fall.

When's the deadline to respond? Try to wait it out as long as you can (since you already have the acceptance in the bag) and see the responses from other institutions you applied before making up your mind.
