However, lack of notification does not exempt a student from paying the appropriate fee. Changes to the fee tables are normally made at the end of the winter term and applied to the subsequent fall term.

Tuition fees are payable by credit card (VISA, MasterCard or Amex), debit card, certified cheque, money order or cash. Certified cheques and money orders must be made payable to: Receiver General for CanadaPlease note that personal cheques will not be accepted as a method of payment.
