Student Health and Dental Insurance per annum
The NVIT Student Society passed, via Referendum on February 26, 2014, a motion for NVIT students to participate (via partnership with the Camosun College Student Society), in a Student Health and Dental Insurance plan. The program is mandatory for all NVIT students at NVIT who are also:
· Enrolled in a program which delivers 60 contact hours within the first 7 weeks of study (as per course start and end dates); and
· Assessed the Student Society fees.
Students will be assessed an annual fee at the beginning of the program. Students receive 12 months coverage effective the 1st of the month when their program starts – if the program is longer than 2 years, either a 2 year fee is assessed the beginning or another annual fee is assessed along with a fee assessment mid-program.
Opt out options are available to students who are able to demonstrate they have alternate coverage. Student with existing coverage can coordinate their new benefits with existing plans.
Should learners opt to take courses delivered via Directed Studies and/or Prior Learning Assessment Recognition, and should those courses also meet all of the criteria above, then learners will be assessed the UPASS BC fees and Student Health and Dental fees on the registration for the directed studies and/or prior learning assessment recognition course(s).
Community Education Fees
Courses will be offered for fees which are sufficient to cover all costs of delivery, including administrative overhead charges determined according to Board Policy.
Students may be required to take tests, which will help to determine skill levels and aid selection of courses appropriate to their educational backgrounds and abilities. Placement tests are also required for entrance in some courses and programs. Specific fees will be assessed based on the required tests.
Tuition Refund Policy:
A signed official withdrawal form and the student's copy of registration must be made available to the Finance Office before a refund is processed. The amount of refund will be determined by the following:
If the student transfers from a class(es) or programs(s) to another of equal credit value during the first two calendar weeks of classes for any given semester, no additional tuition fees will be charged to the student.
In the event the student withdraws from a credit class(es) or program(s) and reduces their total number of credit hours during the first two calendar weeks of classes for any given semester, the following shall apply:
100% of tuition fees will be refunded for withdrawals prior to classes starting.
75% of tuition fees will be refunded before the end of the first week of classes.
50% of tuition fees will be refunded before the end of the second week of classes.
If the student withdraws within the first two calendar weeks for class(es) which charges a lab fee, a 100% refund will be provided to the sponsor or student as applicable. No refund for lab fees is available for withdrawals from class(es) which charge lab fees after the end of the second calendar week of class(es) for any given semester.
No refunds permitted after the end of the second week of classes.
