Tuition Fee Policy for Students with Permanent Disabilities

Tuition Fee Policy for Students with Permanent Disabilities

Effective September 2007, students with disabilities who require the accommodation of a reduced course load due to the impact of a documented disability may be eligible to have tuition fees reduced for the final courses needed to complete their program.  In order to be eligible, the following criteria must be met:

  1. The student has a permanent disability, and has provided CALCS with supporting documentation.
  2. One of the accommodations for which the student has been approved is being able to take a reduced course load.
  3. The student will pay the same tuition fees for a program as students without a disability, until such time as the full program fee has been paid.
  4. After the full program fee has been paid, the student will only be charged $20 per course plus any additional College fees, until the program has been completed.
  5. This policy covers only courses that have been completed successfully and which have been paid.  It does not cover courses that need to be repeated due to late withdrawal or unsuccessful completion.  Courses must be dropped by the day 10 add/drop deadline (first 2 weeks of semester).  If courses are not dropped by that deadline, or the student fails a course, the fees for that course(s) will be deducted from the calculation of program fees before the student can be eligible for reduced tuition.  The student will be required to pay full fees for that course(s).
  6. If the student received a refund due to the reduced course load, the student must pay that amount before the tuition capping policy can take effect.
  7. This policy covers only ONE program.  If the student changes/has changed programs at any time, the tuition fee payments for the current program must be paid as a 1st semester student.
  8. If the student receives financial assistance through OSAP, the student must inform Student Financial Services that they are eligible for this tuition fee subsidy.
  9. If the student is registered with Second Career, the student must inform Second Career that they are eligible for this tuition fee subsidy.

Please note, if you are taking a reduced course load, please see your Disability Counsellor.
