All requests for refunds must be made in writing to Purcell Collegiate School at firstname.lastname@example.org
Refund requests must include relevant supporting documentation. The application fee is non-refundable in any circumstance.
A full refund, less the application fee and an administrative fee of $300, will be granted if Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) does not approve a student study permit. To obtain a full refund under this circumstance, a complete letter indicating the reason for the refund request and the formal letter of refusal from IRCC must be received by Purcell Collegiate School within 30 days of the date on which the Study Permit is refused.
Two-thirds (2/3) of the paid boarding and tuition fees will be refunded if the student withdraws prior to the start of the program, provided that the required document and written request is received by Purcell Collegiate School within 30 days of the date on which the student withdraws.
One-half (1/2) of the boarding and tuition fees paid will be refunded if the student withdraws, for whatever reason, any time within 30 calendar days after the start date listed on the letter of acceptance.
No refund of the boarding and tuition tuition fees paid will be granted if the student withdraws, for whatever reasons, after 30 calendar days from the start date listed on the letter of acceptance.
No refund of any fees paid will be granted if the student is found in violation of school regulations and is withdrawn from the school due to breach of the law, policy or regulation as determined by the Government of Canada, the Police, IRCC and/or Purcell Collegiate School administration.
Note: Any fees paid for the IT (technology), PCS Gear and Medical Insurance are not refundable after the start date listed on the letter of acceptance.
Group 4 Independent School Bonds
Under the Independent School Regulation, all Group 4 independent school authorities (authorities) must maintain valid bonds continuously while operating, in order to provide for the prorated repayment to students of all fees when courses are not taken or completed by students as a result of
(a) the authority closing the independent school, or
(b) the inspector suspending or cancelling the certificate of the authority.
The bonds are intended to provide repayment in the event that the authority has not provided fee refunds through other means, as expected (and as per the policy statement). The bonds cannot provide refunds to students who paid fees but ultimately did not start the educational program due to causes unrelated to the school’s closure (e.g. study permit rejection).
