Tuition & Fees

CNC requires a tuition deposit be paid PRIOR to issuing a Letter of Acceptance (LOA). Depending on your program and course selection(s), your tuition deposit may not cover the entirety of your first term's costs. If your tuition deposit is greater than your tuition costs, the over-payment will be carried forward to your next term's tuition.

Medical Insurance

All students enrolled at CNC must have medical insurance for their entire duration of study. By law, all BC Residents (including international students) are required to enroll themselves and their dependents in BC's Medical Services Plan (MSP). A three month waiting period is required before coverage takes effect. To bridge this gap, temporary medical insurance is provided through Canada. This Coverage is automatic, mandatory and the fee is included with tuition and other fees that are paid before the first semester of study.

Wire transfer details are provided on Pg.3 of your Letter of Offer (LOO). For more information, please contact us.
