Payment Options for International Students

International students are encouraged to use CIBC International Student Pay - a faster and easier method that allows you to pay from anywhere in the world in your preferred currency.

Tuition Refunds

Tuition refunds are available if you formally withdraw early in the program. A formal withdrawal requires that you write a letter or complete a withdrawal form (form is available through Student Services). Your tuition refund does not include any non-refundable fees (application fee & tuition deposit).

  • Before first day of class: full refund (less tuition deposit)
  • During first two weeks of either term: 95% of term amount (less tuition deposit)
  • After second week of either term: no refund

If you have received a student loan or had your tuition paid by a sponsoring agency, the appropriate refund will be sent directly to your lending institution or sponsor.

If a program is cancelled after the start of an academic year, tuition and fees previously paid will be refunded (including the tuition deposit but not including the application fee).
