Deposit and Tuition Payments

A tuition deposit of $1,200.00 CAD is required when we receive your university or college letter of conditional acceptance. Payment can be made via wire transfer, cheque, bank draft, online deposit, or credit card.

You will be invoiced for two terms. CultureWorks cannot accept monthly payments. Full payment of your pre-arrival invoice is required two weeks before the beginning of school. Once you have started your studies and your level has been confirmed, you will be invoiced for all remaining terms of study. The invoice will also include emergency health insurance as it is a mandatory requirement while on the university campus.
