Homestay Placement Fee
A non-refundable $250 application fee is required to apply for homestay. This fee is assessed on a per homestay basis and is required each time a placement is requested.
Application fee and non-refundable deposits must be received 30 days before the start of the course. Full payment is due 15 days before the course begins.
Visa, MasterCard, or American Express are the preferred methods of payment. International bank wire transfers are also an acceptable means of payment; however, they are expensive and slow. All bank wire transfers require an additional $60 processing fee. Bank wire refunds usually require additional processing fees and a minimum of 3 months to refund. If paying in person, cash, debit card or cheque (domestic only) are also acceptable.
A deposit is required for each course at the time of registration. All course deposits are part of tuition, not in addition to it. Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable.
$10 fee will be charged per document for requesting an additional transcript, assessment or certificate.

Students who cancel homestay 15 days or more before their homestay begins will only be charged the homestay placement fee, all other homestay fees will be refunded.
Visa/permit related issues

- The visa/study permit application was submitted to IIRC at least 3 months before the course start date.
- The Government of Canada (IIRC) refused the visa and/or permit application.
