      • Payment options are:

      • Payment of all fees in advance,
      • Upfront (deposit) payment of $300 payable on enrolment day and sign an authority for automatic bank transfer payments so that all fees will be fully paid no later than one week prior to examination date for the semester,

Part-time (2 subjects) students will be required to pay either the full semester fees in advance by the first week of each semester, or an upfront (deposit) payment of $300 and sign an authority for bank transfer payments so that all fees will be fully paid by the week prior to the examination date for the semester to which they apply, or apply for a FEE-HELP loan if eligible.
