Fee Payment Schedule
Students who wish to pay for their program fees out of pocket have several options for payment:
- Pay course fees in full prior to the program start date
- Pay course fees according to the program fee schedule
Students who opt to pay course fees through the program fee schedule are able to divide their tuition into three equal payments over the first three months of the program. During your registration appointment, you will be given information as to the precise amount per program and the due date of each payment.
Immigrant Access Fund
Immigrant Access Fund Canada supports immigrants, including refugees, who arrive in our country equipped with excellent professional skills and knowledge but face significant barriers to employment. IAF provides micro loans of up to $10,000 to internationally trained immigrants so they can obtain the Canadian licensing or training they need to work in their field. The loan can pay for exams, training, qualification assessments, professional association fees, books and course materials, living allowance and other expenses related to obtaining the Canadian licensing or training they need.
