Additional non-refundable application fees:

  • $125 CAD VSCP Application Fee
  • $25 CAD Residence Application Fee

All fees are subject to approval and may change. The above calculations are based on 2017-2018 costs. For 2018-2019, an increase is expected.

Tuition estimates include the VSCP Program Fee, ESL Course Fees, VSCP seminars and staff services, instructional (academic course) fees and non-instructional fees. Accommodation fees and health insurance fees are not included in this estimate.

The estimated living expenses include monthly health insurance fees.

Students applying for a campus residence must submit their VSCP and residence application before April 30 to be guaranteed a residence assignment for September.

On average, a VSCP student in any schedule earns from three to six academic course credits (each course has a value of three credits).

Cancellation and Refund Policies

Applications must be cancelled in writing prior to the first day of the first required ESL course in order for the VSCP Program Fee to be cancelled in full.  The VSCP application fee, Residence Application Fee, and Homestay Placement Fee are non-refundable.

Students who withdraw from the program after the commencement of the required ESL courses and prior to the 30th day of the month that their final required ESL term ends are eligible for a partial refund of the VSCP Program Fee.
