Program application fee and tuition deposit

Application fee

Applications must be accompanied by a non-refundable application fee. The application fee is $40 for domestic applicants and $C100 for international applicants. There's no application fee for Achieve or the Adult Learning Program.

Paying the application fee

  • Apply online and pay your application fee by credit card or Visa Debit.

Tuition deposit

Once admitted, you need to pay a non-refundable $200 tuition deposit ($C5000 for international applicants) to confirm your seat. It must be received within the timeframe indicated in your admission letter/email; otherwise, you risk losing your seat. The tuition deposit is non-refundable and cannot be transferred to another academic year. The deposit counts toward your tuition and confirms your intention to enrol.
