  • REGISTRATION FEES are nonrefundable fees which include administrative costs, yearbooks, agendas and selective technology fees.
  • ACADEMIC FEES INCLUDE tuition fees (textbooks, non-consumable teaching resources and salaries), activity/resource fees (consumable student resources, field trips, graduation fees, etc.) and capital fees (facility costs and improvements).
  • INTERNATIONAL FEES are non-refundable.  Once CWAA issues a letter of acceptance and the student is issued a Student Visa by the Canadian Immigration Authority, based on CWAA’s Letter of Acceptance, tuition fees are non-refundable. Only in the event of inability to attend school due to immigration difficulty will the tuition fee be refunded.
