Interest

A finance charge of 1.5% per month or 18% per annum will be applied to all past due accounts. Typically, interest begins to accrue in October and/or February.

Required to Discontinue

Students who have not made a minimum of a 50% payment or set up an approved payment plan by October 15/February 15 will receive written notice about the outstanding balance and will have 15 days to pay the balance or set up an approved payment plan or will be Required to Discontinue. Students Required to Discontinue are still responsible to pay the outstanding balance.

Students who have outstanding fees may not be permitted to write exams and will not be permitted to study in subsequent semesters, will not have access to their tax slips (T2202), transcripts or diploma and will be charged interest following the interest policy until the account is paid in full. Students also will not qualify for scholarships, bursaries, awards or rebates.

Withheld Documents Policy

Students who have outstanding fees according to the colored chart above will not have access to T2202s, transcripts or diplomas.

Regaining Good Financial Standing

Students must meet with the Student Financial Adviser to make payment or set up a Personal payment plan. Once payment has been received or an approved plan has been established, the student will be allowed to continue studying and be permitted to write exams; all restrictions will be removed once payment has been received in full. Students may be required to sign a Student Finance Contract in order to be eligible to return in future semesters.

Collections Policy

Briercrest will take appropriate steps to collect outstanding accounts, including the use of a collection agency, where necessary.

Tax Information (T2202 and T4A)

All students will have a T2202 tax receipt posted on their online student portal in mid to late February of each year. All fees billed to the student the previous year will be reflected on the T2202. Form T2202 only reports the tuition paid and the number of months the student is enrolled in a qualifying educational program; it does not provide assurance that the student is eligible for the tuition, education, or textbook tax credit. Each student must determine whether or not they are eligible for these tax credits based on their own circumstances. To be eligible for full-time status for tax purposes, a minimum of 10 credit hours per semester is required. For further details, refer to the resource material located on CRA's web site for students or consult your tax advisor.

T4A tax information slips are issued based on scholarships, bursaries, awards, and rebates received if the amount received is greater than $500.00. The slips for the previous calendar year will be placed in student boxes on or before the last day of February.
