Tuition and Refunds


Preparing for College

When you are able to prepare for your studies by creating a solid financial plan, then you are able to “set yourself up for success.” The goal is to ensure that you are prepared financially so that you are able to focus on your education. Please consult with an Admissions Director to assist you and your family. We can guide you through various financial options. 

An Admissions Director can work with you on a one-on-one basis, to help you create a financial budget. They can help you assess your income, possible student loan amounts, other potential funding amounts and expenses during your time with us. 

We have on-site Student Loan Administrators who will help you through the Student Loan process step by step. If a student has been in default from a previous loan, our incredible Student Loan staff can help you navigate the sometimes overwhelming Student Loan system and get you back on track.

The College is also committed to helping students in need. To that end, the College issues over one million dollars in Tuition Grants each year. There are Tuition Grants available for specific start dates up to $4000 to help offset costs.

 

Registration Fees


Upon successful acceptance to register in your Program, we will request payment of a non-refundable Registration Fee (in addition to tuition paid upon enrolment) to secure your spot. The amount of the fee depends on whether you are a Domestic Student or International Student. 

  • Domestic Students (Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents): $250
  • International Students: $900
