Fees and Payments

VCC is proud of its high quality programs and the value we offer students.

Tuition and fees vary by program and length of study. For program-specific tuition and fee details for domestic students, please consult the tuition calculator.

International students must consult VCC International to view all applicable fees for international students.

Tuition, student union fees and some other costs are payable in advance. A $35 non-refundable application fee is required for most programs at the time of application.

* All fees are subject to change without notice.

Fees must be paid in full at the time of registration. Your registration is not complete until fees are paid. A student who registers but does not pay may have their registration cancelled and will not receive credit for the course or program.

Tuition fees for full-time programs are determined by term. You must pay for each term on time or a late payment fee is assessed.

Students who are being sponsored by an outside agency must present a letter from the sponsoring agency before or at the time of registration.

Follow this step-by-step guide to paying your fees.

All students must pay a student union fee at the time of registration.

The Students’ Union of Vancouver Community College membership fee provides the necessary funds to allow the association to carry out the functions normally attributed to such an association, including proper representation both within and outside VCC, socials and other association/student functions.

T2202A Tuition and Education Credit certificates will be available by the end of February. Students will be able to access and print the T2202A from myVCC at that time. 

If cheques are not honoured where drawn, VCC will immediately exclude a student from class and assess a charge on all cheques returned by the bank. Students who pay for tuition or other fees with cheques for which there are insufficient funds or who place a stop payment order on their cheques are only permitted to make subsequent payments by cash, credit card, money order or certified cheque. 

A student must pay any fees owing to VCC before re-registering at any campus or obtaining any official record of grades. 

A service fee is charged for returned NSF cheques. 

VCC does not allow students with outstanding tuition fees to attend classes and discontinues such students from the program or course. Re-instatement into the program or course requires permission from the dean as well as payment of outstanding debts. VCC charges a re-instatement fee in addition to the regular fees. Outstanding debts are sent for collection. 

Withdrawals without academic penalty must be received before within the first 3/4 of the course.  This will vary from course to course based on duration and delivery.  Please check the registration schedule for further information. If you meet the criteria for withdrawing, please complete a withdrawal form ‌ and submit it to the Registrar's Office.

The deadline for refunds varies based on program delivery, please veiw the Refund Procedures for further information.
