Payment Methods and Other Fees

Material Fees

Students are expected to provide materials for their classes. In most cases, these materials can be purchased from the NSCAD Supply Store. However, in some cases, due to the nature of the materials and the economy of bulk purchasing, materials will be purchased by the University and made available to students from the department or instructor. Students registered in courses for which such bulk purchasing is done will be required to pay a Materials Fee. In such cases, the amount of the Materials Fee will be published in the course outline distributed at the first class meeting, and the amount will be automatically charged to the student’s account.

Letter of Permission Tuition

Students taking courses at other Universities on a Letter of permission are expected to pay fees directly to the other institution. Students should factor in these additional tuition and fee payments when applying for student loans.

International Health Insurance Plan

All International and exchange students will be automatically enrolled in NSCAD’s International student health plan. This plan ensures that students have adequate coverage for Canadian medical services. NSCAD’s International student health plan is currently provided through Travel Insurance Coordinators Ltd (TIC). The coverage is for a 12 month period of September 1 to August 31 at a cost of $650. All prices are subject to change. The cost of this mandatory single plan will be included on the student’s account with no exceptions. Note that exchange students visiting for less than 4 months may be eligible for short term coverage at $236 per term.

Student’s who become eligible for MSI can opt out of the plan. Students may also purchase additional coverage for spouse or family directly from TIC.
