Deposit for New International Students


      If you are a new international student applying to Capilano University for the first time, you need to pay a one-time $5,000.00 deposit. This deposit will be applied against your international tuition fees once you have registered in courses at the University. The deposit will not be required from students in distance education programs, exchange programs, or government-sponsored study abroad.

      Any difference between the deposit amount and the amount of your first-term fees will be refunded to you by the end of the first term of studies.

      If for some reason you are not able to follow through with your registration at the University, a $500.00 administrative fee or program deposit, whichever is greater, will be deducted from your refund.


      If you have been denied a study permit/visa and are unable to attend Capilano University as a result, you will be refunded the full amount of your deposit. Where a student is found to have provided fraudulent documentation as part of their study permit/visa application, a full refund may not be issued. 

      The refund policy for students from India, Vietnam and the Philippines vary. Students from these countries should refer to their original Letter of Offer.
