Tuition and Fee Payment
The Seventy-Five dollar ($75.00) registration is due at the time of registration. Tuition is due in full on the first day of the program of study unless prior financial arrangements have been made with the Chief Financial Officer. If you are planning on paying for your tuition with financial aid, we advise you to consult with our Chief Financial Officer so that you apply in time to budget your money prior to the start of the program of study.
Students have the option of paying their tuition in full at the beginning of the program or paying Module by Module as outlined in the Program/course brochure. The brochures are available by filling in the Request for Information form only.
A Student’s account balance must be cleared prior to registering for a subsequent program or course. Students with outstanding monies owed are barred from registration until the balance is paid. Any Student who has not brought his/her outstanding balance up-to-date at the time of either transfer or graduation will not be permitted to do either. CIHS reserves the right to deny a certification of completion, graduation diploma, or transcript to any Student whose financial responsibilities to the College have not been met in full.
The College of International Holistic Studies (CIHS) suggests the following Financial Aid Programs to assist Students with educational costs.
- Federal Registered Retirement (Education) Savings Plans (RRSP or RESP) – Unsubsidized
- Chartered Bank Educational Loans
- Crelogix Education Loans
- Credit Cards
All students will receive a T2202A for FULL TIME study provided the student is completing their course work in the allotted monthly time frame that is given for completion of the program/course. For example, if the program of study is given 12 months to complete and the student is within that time frame for completion, they will receive a T2202A form stating the student has engaged in full time study. If however the student is behind on their allotted time frame, the student will receive a T2202A form stating the student is engaged in PART TIME study. This will result in tax ramifications for the person claiming the Educational tax exemption. CIHS therefore encourages all students to keep up with their course work in a timely manner. T2202A forms will be issued in February of the year following the program/course of study. It is the responsibility of the student to keep mailing addresses current and up to date. Failure to do this, may result in a re-issue charge for the T2202A Educational Tax Receipt.
Students are permitted to apply for a 6 month extension to allow completion of Course Work, Dissertation, Case Studies, etc. The fee for the extension is $150 and there is an academic penalty of 20% of the value of the incomplete work. For example, if a student requests an extension for a dissertation valued at 20 points of their total grade they must pay $150 and their submitted work from the extension will now have a value of no more than 16 points (20% of 20 points = 4 point penalty). The student will then be given a Part Time T2202A receipt.
