Other Fees

For some courses, there is a $100 textbook deposit.  All textbook deposits are 80% refundable at the centre you attended. Textbooks must be returned within two calendar weeks of term end.  

Depending on your educational history, you may be asked to take an English/math assessment in order to have an appropriate Individual Student Learning Plan developed for you.  You may phone any of the Education Centres to arrange an appointment.  There is a $20.00 charge for this assessment.  Please see our main page for information about our assessment process during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
