  • If a student voluntarily leaves the program within 30 days of beginning, half of the full Tuition Fee is refundable.
  • If the status of the student changes after September 30th, to permanent resident or Canadian citizen (where international fees would normally not be applicable) there will be NO REFUND of international fees for that school year.

“The Board and school in which the student is enrolled will not be liable for losses or expenses you may incur as a result of the Board being unable to provide education owing to labour disputes or other causes beyond its control. Fees will be refunded only if the education program in which you are enrolled cannot be completed within the term.”

ADDITIONAL COSTS

International students will not be charged additional fees for items which are required costs of the school and the classes they are enrolled in. Some examples of these might be things such as locker fees, physical education fees, art project fees, etc. However, they are expected to pay for items which are completely optional and at the discretion of the student. Examples of which would be purchasing a school yearbook, joining the school ski club, etc.

 

INSURANCE

Through our International Student Program students are provided with medical insurance coverage with a private insurance company and then when eligible, also with British Columbia Provincial medical insurance. Insurance coverage will be provided during the entire length of the student's stay in Canada.

HOMESTAY COSTS

The cost of your homestay is $900 per month. This fee covers your accommodation and meals. International students are to pay the homestay family directly on the first day of each month.

International students are expected to pay the full amount of the monthly homestay fee for months such as December, January, and March even if they leave the homestay residence during a holiday period. If the student leaves the homestay residence on or before June 15 (and notifies the Homestay Coordinator of the intention to do so by June 1), the student will only have to make the homestay payment for the first half of June ($450). However, if the student leaves the homestay residence after June 15, the student is responsible for paying for the full month's homestay fee.
