A Local Student is defined as those who currently hold a valid Canadian or U.S. citizenship and whose family has a Canadian or U.S. bank account. If this is not the case, the student will be considered a Visa Student. Any student who has not been granted the legal documentation (Study Permit) to study in Canada will be considered an Overseas Student. Each year the student will be required to complete and sign the application form again to continue studies, along with providing the first tuition installment, to ensure the placement for the following year. The enrollment status under which a student applies and then is offered admission to the MSA will be expected to continue during the entire time of their studies. For information on enrollment status options and policies, please inquire at our front desk.
In the event that acceptance of an enrollment offer occurs after any payment plan installment date, you will be required to pay the prior dated installments as a catch-up payment, upon enrollment. The refund is based on full fees being paid and will be applied to the account. Any outstanding tuition installments or incidental charges will deducted before a refund cheque is issued. Should a student leave Mississauga Secondary Academy after a commission to an agent has been paid, MSA will subtract the commission from the tuition refund provided to the parents.
Application/Registration fees and other administrative charges are non-refundable and are not included in the tuition fee.
There will be a $50.00 charge for NFS cheques; bounced cheques.
All fees are not transferable under any conditions. Tuition fee must be used within one year of payment date.
If applicable, 70% of the tuition fee will be refunded if a student decides to withdraw a course or retire from a semester within the first week of the course/semester start. Not applied to VISA students who are first time arrived in their first academic year.
