Tuition & Fees

CNC requires a tuition deposit be paid PRIOR to issuing a Letter of Acceptance (LOA). Depending on your program and course selection(s), your tuition deposit may not cover the entirety of your first term costs. If your tuition deposit is greater than your tuition costs, the over-payment will be carried forward to your next term's tuition.

Tuition Refund Policy

Our refund policy concerning the tuition deposit is as follows:

  • International applicants are eligible for a refund ONLY if they are denied a Student VISA. Proper documentation MUST be provided with refund request
  • Monies received by CNC College are NOT transferrable to any other institution of higher learning
  • Students who arrive in Canada with a VISA secured through CNC, but who “Fail To Appear” for classes at our College, WILL BE reported to Immigration Canada as “Missing”

Applicants whose request for a Student Visa is declined will receive a full refund on tuition deposits paid, less a $250 administration fee. Contact the International Education office at CNC for a refund request form if your Visa application has been denied.

Payment Plans

Payment plans for Spring semester are available starting March 15, 2023

Students who have registered but do not pay full fees or set up a payment plan by April 26, 2023 will be de-registered from their classes, and risk losing their first choice in courses/sections/instructors.

To set up a payment plan:

  1. Register for your courses for the semester. Do not apply for a payment plan until after you are registered.
  2. Apply for a payment plan using the online application form
    Please note:  this link does not work on mobile phones/tablets.  Please use a computer to access the application form.  Computers are available in all College computer labs, or you can apply from home using your own computer.
  3. When completing the application form, please ensure you complete all three sections.  You must provide the following:
    • Complete information on your financial situation, including full details on your monthly income, GIC and other income (from family etc).
    • Accurate information on all your monthly expenses
    • Clearly state your financial situation, and explain why you cannot pay your tuition in full. One-sentence responses will be rejected – we require at least one paragraph of 80 words, with full detailed information on your situation in order to assess your eligibility for a payment plan.
    Incomplete applications will not be accepted
  4. Note: you only need to apply ONCE for your payment plan. Do not set up multiple payment plan applications.
  5. Read the “Terms and Conditions”, click that you have read them, then click the “submit” button to submit your application – it will be saved on a secure site accessible only to the International Education Department staff.
  6. Once your payment plan application has been received by International Education it will be reviewed. You do not need to go to the International Education Centre. If the information provided on your payment plan application is insufficient you may be asked to meet with International Education staff for further review.
  7. If approved, you will receive an e-mail from International Education within one week of application to confirm the approval. You will receive a second e-mail from Financial Services with confirmation of due dates, payment amounts and deadlines. Until you have received your confirmation email from Financial Services, your payment plan is NOT complete.
  8. IMPORTANT: if at any time in the past, the College has had to send your financial account to a collections agency for non-payment of fees, or if your account has a history of late or incomplete payments, your application for a payment plan will be denied, as per the Terms and Conditions.  If your payment plan application is denied, you will be notified via e-mail by International Education.

    April 26, 2023:  minimum 40% down payment
    May 31, 2023:
