Refund Policy

It is a fundamental condition of the Board of Education of School District No.38 (Richmond) agreement to provide an education program, and the Board shall not be liable for losses or expenses an international student may incur as a result of the Board being unable to provide a program due to labour disputes or other causes beyond its control. Fees will only be refunded if the education program in which the student is enrolled cannot be completed within the school year. 

The refund policy is in effect from the moment a new student is issued a Letter of Acceptance (LOA) or a returning student is issued a Letter of Re-Admission (LRA) from Richmond International Education until the moment he/she officially leaves our program.

All refund requests must be submitted in writing with all supporting documents listed on the Refund Request Form. The following refund policy will apply to all international students.
