Payment of Fees

Each semester, the subject fee is paid for each subject in which the student is enrolled. Students are able to either pay their own fees for each subject in which they are enrolled or choose to pay the subject fees using FEE-HELP (if eligible). Students can also choose to pay a portion of their subject fees themselves and the remaining portion using FEE-HELP (if eligible). Please note that the above subject fees are current for this calendar year and are reviewed and changed at the Institute's discretion for future semesters.

FEE-HELP is available for eligible students to pay their tuition (subject) fees. You can find out more about Fee Help from the following publication: Fee Help Information – 2021. The Request for FEE-HELP Assistance form to apply for FEE-HELP will be provided to you upon being offered a place in the course or, for current students, with your semester enrolment information.

If paying their own fees, students provide credit card details on the Semester Enrolment Form or pay their fees by cheque or money order. Subject fees are due within 14 days of the semester commencing and an invoice/receipt is issued to the student.

You should also add the costs of return airfares, or costs for another mode of travel, from your place of residence to the Residential School location.
