Payment Options for International Students 

Investing in post-secondary education is an investment in your future. RDC provides our international students with several methods to pay their tuition:  

Pay Your Tuition and Fees Term by Term 

  • Once registered for courses, submit payment by term, on or before the term payment deadline. 

Pay Your Tuition for the Full Academic Year

  • Once your registration is complete for the academic year, submit payment for each term, on or before the starting term payment deadline. 

Pay Estimated Tuition for Your First Year of Study after Acceptance into Program (SDS Stream)

  • International students who are interested in applying for their study permit through the Government of Canada’s Study Direct Stream will be required to pay the estimated tuition for their first year of study upon acceptance into the program.  Once you receive your Letter of Acceptance and pay your tuition deposit, submit a lump sum payment of the first year estimated tuition.  It is important to note that exact tuition and fees will be calculated once you register for courses in each term.
