Refund Policy

The refund policy is in effect from the moment a new student is issued a Letter of Acceptance (LOA) or returning student is issued a Letter of Re-admission from Richmond International Education until the moment he/she officially leaves our program.

It is a fundamental condition of the Board of Education of School District No.38 (Richmond) agreement to provide your education, and the Board shall not be liable for losses or expenses you may incur as a result of the Board being unable to provide a program due to labour disputes or other causes beyond its control. Fees will only be refunded if the education program in which you are enrolled cannot be completed within the school year.

In the event that an applicant does not come to Canada or decides to leave the Richmond School District for personal reasons before the program start date, a portion of the tuition fee will be refunded. Three hundred dollars ($300) will be retained to cover administration expenses. All refund requests must be submitted in writing with all supporting documents listed on the Refund Request Form. The following refund policy will apply to all international students.

Refund Schedule

1. Full refund of tuition fee, less application and administration fees, if the study permit and/or visa is not approved by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). The student must submit a copy of the original IRCC letter of denial.

2. Two-thirds (2/3) of tuition fee, if a returning student withdraws prior to the commencement of the program.

3. One-half (1/2) of tuition fee, if the student withdraws within one calendar month of the program start date.

4. One-half (1/2) of tuition fee if a new student withdraws from the program after the Letter of Acceptance (LOA) is issued.

5. No refund of the tuition fee if the student withdraws after the first calendar month of the program.

6. No refund of the tuition fee if the student is found to be in violation of school rules (i.e. chronic absenteeism, drinking alcohol, taking drugs), provincial or Canadian laws and is removed or voluntarily withdraws from the program.
