Students will not pay tuition until registered for classes. Students should not register for classes until their Visa is granted.

If a student registers, receives a bill and does not get a visa, he/she will have to drop his/her classes by the 10th day of the semester to get a refund.

If a student registers, receives a bill, does not get a visa, and drops after the 10th day of the semester, he/she will need to request an enrolment adjustment.

If the drop is retroactively changed to a date through the 10th day, charges will be removed. This process is lengthy, so it is very important that a student does not register until a visa is granted.

Once registered, the Fall 2020 semester is billed on 1 August 2020 and payment is due on 20 August 2020.
