College's Regulations and Policies
Tuition Fees Policies
A non-refundable tuition deposit of $100 will be required from matriculated students depending on their program. A matriculated student is defined as one who has been formally accepted into a degree, certificate, professional certificate, or diploma program.
The President or his/her designee reserves the right to waive the deposit for any or all groups of students as may be deemed appropriate for his/her college.
If the deposit is required, it will be applied to the tuition for the semester in which the student is matriculated and is non-refundable. The tuition deposit is not transferable to another semester unless an exception is made by the President or his/her designee. One hundred dollars of any payment towards a student’s first matriculated semester may be designated as the non- refundable tuition deposit. A change of major may also require an additional non-refundable deposit. If required, deposits are due three weeks from the date of the acceptance letter and prior to the first day of classes.
Advance Payment Requirement
Payment or arrangements for payment of all semester charges are due two weeks prior to the start of the semester. Failure to make payment in full or arrangements for payment two weeks prior to the start of the semester may result in the cancellation of the student’s registration. Payments can be made online through the Student Information System (SIS) , in the finance office, or by bank transfer. A fee of $50 per semester will be charged to all students who fail to make arrangements to pay tuition and fees prior to the start of classes.
A student who fails to make payment as scheduled will be allowed to finish the course, but will be unable to receive an official transcript, certificate, professional certificate, or degree.
Furthermore, the student may not register for future terms at the College and may be restricted from registration at other colleges in the system. If payment is made, the student will be allowed to register for future classes. Full payment of all tuition and fees for any new classes will be required before the semester/term begins.
Termly Payment Plan
In an effort to assist students with tuition charges, the College offers an interest free termly payment plan. The plan allows the student to fulfil their financial obligation to the College by automatic electronic processing of instalment payments. There is a per semester enrolment fee for this program. More information can be obtained from the Finance Office or on the website. If tuition is paid in instalments, it must be paid in full 10 days prior to the beginning of final exams or two weeks prior to the end of the term, whichever is applicable.
Short course abroad fee
A fee will be charged for all short course abroad if student are registered to the programme that arrange by the college annually. The fee will be calculated by including travel expense such as air ticket, accommodation, meals, transportation cost, visa fee and any other translated documents during the visa process. This fee are not part of the tuition fee, and there is no obligation to be paid by the student unless they are registered and confirmed to join.
Students agree that by registering for course(s) with the college, they are financially obligated for ALL costs related to the registered course(s). Upon a drop or withdrawal, they agree that they will be responsible for all charges as noted in Student Handbook. They further understand that if they do not make payment in full, they're be suspended from the course and disconnect from the college system.
Withdrawal From the College through Official Notification by the Student
The Registrar’s Office is the official authority within the college designated to accept withdrawal notification. If a student communicates to a staff person in the Registrar’s Office while that person is acting in an official capacity, that communication in whatever form (verbal or written), is considered official notification. Students are urged to submit a signed withdrawal form and/or Add/Drop form to the Registrar’s Office to show their intent to withdraw. The date the form is submitted to the Registrar is the withdrawal date and the date of notification to the school. Students may also withdraw from the college by phone, fax, or mail.
Withdrawal From the College or a Course Through Official Notification by the Faculty
A faculty member may process a withdrawal from the college or a course on behalf of a student who is unable to do so himself/herself because of circumstances beyond the student’s control (e.g. hospitalisation, military transfer, accident). The faculty member will submit the appropriate course/college withdrawal form to the Registrar’s Office with all information filled out on the student’s behalf. If not indicated on the form, a brief explanation must accompany the form indicating why the student is unable to complete the withdrawal him/herself. The date the form is submitted to the Registrar is the withdrawal date and the date of notification to the College.
Withdrawal From the College Without Notification to the College (Dropout)
If a student ceases attendance without providing official notification, the withdrawal date will be the midpoint of the semester, unless the Registrar is notified otherwise (see below). Students who stop attending class after the add/drop period will receive an AF from the instructor at the end of the semester. An AF grade is computed into the student GPA as an F.
However, an instructor may also give an AF grade at any point during the semester for violation of the instructor’s individual attendance policy, for disruptive classroom behaviour, or for unsafe clinical practice (see AF grade definition). In this instance, the instructor will submit the AF grade to the Registrar on a designated form. The date the form is submitted will be the date of notification.
Refunds for Tuition
Students who officially withdraw from the College or an individual course before enrolment date of the semester will receive a 100% refund of tuition, less-non refundable fees.
Student who officially withdraw from the college or an individual course by the (fourteenth) 14th calendar day after the course start will receive 50% refund of the tuition, less non-refundable fees.
Students registered for non-credit workshops must withdraw in writing at least three days prior to the first workshop session to receive a full refund of tuition and fees. In extenuating circumstances, the President (or designee) is authorised to offer alternative compensation in the form of tuition credits to students on a case-by-case basis. Tuition credit on a student account must be used within one calendar year from the date of authorisation. All refunds require that students complete an official withdrawal form.
In accordance with college regulations, refunds for an amount less than $1 ($0.99 or less) will be forfeited.
