Kaléo and IMPRINT students follow the Kaléo/IMPRINT refund policy.

International Students are refunded according to this same schedule. All remaining funds deposited to a student account for the purposes of demonstrating financial stability for entrance into the country will be refunded.

Students using student loans who withdraw during or after first semester may have a refund sent directly to the National Student Loan Service Centre following provincial student loan guidelines. This could result in the student having an outstanding balance on their student account.

NOTE: Students who are expelled for academic dishonesty or violations of the student conduct code will receive a WF for all classes in the current semester. Tuition refunds may be made following the above timelines.

Not in Good Financial Standing = Withheld Documents

Students who have outstanding fees according to the colored chart above will not have access to T2202As, transcripts or diploma and may not be permitted to register for courses for the upcoming semester. Students may not qualify for scholarships, bursaries, awards or rebates.

Regaining Good Financial Standing

Students must meet with the Student Financial Adviser to make payment or set up a Personal payment plan. Once payment has been received or an approved plan has been established, the student will be allowed to continue studying and be permitted to write exams; all restrictions will be removed once payment has been received in full. Students may be required to sign a Student Finance Contract in order to be eligible to return in future semesters.

Tax Information (T2202A and T4A)

All students will have a T2202A tax receipt posted on their online student portal in mid to late February of each year.  All fees billed to the student the previous year will be reflected on the T2202A. Form T2202A only reports the tuition paid and the number of months the student is enrolled in a qualifying educational program; it does not provide assurance that the student is eligible for the tuition, education, or textbook tax credit. Each student must determine whether or not they are eligible for these tax credits based on their own circumstances. To be eligible for full-time status for tax purposes, a minimum of 10 credit hours per semester is required. For further details, refer to the resource material located on CRA's web site for students or consult your tax advisor.

T4A tax information slips are issued based on scholarships, bursaries, awards, and rebates received if the amount received is greater than $500.00. The slips for the previous calendar year will be placed in student boxes on or before the last day of February.

Interest

A finance charge of 1.5% per month or 18% per annum will be applied to all past due accounts.

Externally Funded Students

If the student's education is being funded by an organization or agency, the student must make available grades, finance, and enrolment and attendance information when that agency requests it.

If you have questions about putting together your finances for school, contact the student financial adviser.
