NOTE: The College reserves the right to adjust its fee scale without further notice if sudden changes in the economy force it to do so

Audit Student: An audit enrolment is permitted only by faculty approval on an individual basis. The provision of audit enrolment does not extend to private music instruction.

Part-time Student: Part-time students taking 6 or more credits are subject to all student fees. For those taking fewer than 6 credits student fees are optional. Part-time students are expected to conform to the College Calendar and no benefits can be expected if fees are not paid.

Room and Board: Charges for room and board are the same for all resident students regardless of the number of meals taken in the cafeteria. No allowance is made for meals missed or rooms not occupied because of work, travel, personal habits, or late registration.

Medical Insurance: All students are required to obtain their own medical insurance.

Music Lessons: If music lessons are discontinued before the last day to drop classes, assessed charges are calculated at the rate per lessons, and 90% of the unused balance is refunded. There is no refund after the last day to drop classes. In fairness to the instructor, at least one week advance notice of intention to discontinue private lessons should be given.

Other Fees: There is no refund of miscellaneous fees once payment has been processed and classes have been attended.

Transcripts: Official transcripts are not issued to students with overdue accounts.

Employment: The college recognizes the need for some students to work while attending classes. These students may need to adjust their academic load and at times may need to limit their involvement in extra-curricular activities.

USA Loans

The college welcomes American applicants. At this time American citizens cannot receive a government loan for studies at Summit. American applicants would receive very favourable tuition due to current foreign exchange rates.

Summer Course Charges

Payment is due by April 30 for students registered for Summer Internships or Directed Studies courses.

Student Employment

The college recognizes the need for some students to work while attending classes. These students may need to adjust their academic load and at times may need to limit their involvement in extra-curricular activities.

There is no compulsory duty system (gratis hours, details) at Summit. However, interested students may submit a resume to the Business Administrator's office for on-campus positions which become available from time to time.
