Students choosing to pay online through PayPal may do so using a PayPal account or using a Credit Card as a guest. It is also possible for a third party to complete the PayPal payment on behalf of the student if they are present during the transaction.

Students choosing the “Bank Draft or Money Order” payment method will receive an email at the end of the transaction that includes a “Payment via Mail Form”. All certified cheques mailed to the Institute must arrive with the “Payment via Mail Form". Payments not arriving with the completed “Payment via Mail Form” will be returned.

Bank drafts and money orders should be made out to: “Pacific Rim Early Childhood Institute”. The abbreviated name, “Pacific Rim ECI” will also be accepted.

Registration must be completed and accepted prior to sending in any tuition payments. Tuition payment for multiple courses (up to 3 courses at a time, at the Institution’s discretion) may be submitted on one cheque, provided the student has completed online enrollment for all the courses that payment is being sent for and plans on starting them all simultaneously.

Tuition payments are made prior to beginning each course. Tuition will only be accepted for courses in which students have been enrolled. Tuition must be paid in full prior to beginning each course.

Refunds will be made in accordance with our Refund Policy. Registration and Academic Assessment Fees are non-refundable.

Special Considerations for Sponsorship Payments should be submitted as outlined in the “General Payment Information” section of this policy, with the exception that it is possible for sponsorship agencies to submit a sponsorship letter indicating the forthcoming payment schedule. Students with a sponsorship letter on file may begin the program prior to full payment being received.

Payments must be issued for a single student. Lump payments that arrive on behalf of more than one student will be returned.

A government or business cheque may be accepted in lieu of a bank draft or money order, although any NSF fees incurred by the Institute will be charged back to the sender. Please note, in compliance with the Freedom of Information/Protection of Privacy Act (RSB1996) c. 165, a sponsor cannot make changes to the student’s registration, including transferring registration to another student.

Prior to sending payment, sponsors must understand and accept the liability for course fees on behalf of the student/employee and if required, have a clear plan in place on how repayment will be made.

Eligible refunds are issued to the student regardless of the payee. It may be possible to issue a refund directly to the payee, but only with the student’s express permission.
