The Student Contract is a legal document that protects and assures the rights and conditions of the Student whilst enrolled at a Private Education Institution (PEI), in this case, the Canadian International School (CIS). The CIS Student Contract covers the following requirements:
- Course details – including course title, pre-requisites, qualification awarded, course duration
- Full details of all fees Fee Protection Scheme (FPS)
- Medical Insurance
- Refund Policies
- CIS Policies and/or Regulations
- Dispute Resolution
It is a legal requirement that all Students must enter into the Student Contract. CIS executes a CIS Student Contract for every Student. This contract is a critical document that helps to minimise future disputes, therefore it is essential that it be completely understood by the Student (parents/legal guardians where a student is younger than 18 years of age) prior to enrolment.
CIS signs a Student Contract (each contract will have a unique number) with the Student after a place has been offered to the student, and that place has been accepted by the Student (parents/legal guardians where a student is younger than 18 years of age). The CIS Student Contract indicates the detailed breakdown of total fees payable by the Student together with a payment schedule that indicates the exact date payments are due.

Supplemental Student Contract
A Student Contract must be signed by all Students enrolled at CIS. Once the initial student contract has been signed, a simpler supplemental contract must be signed on an annual basis.
Supplemental student contracts for existing students must be signed by 18 March. If the supplemental contract is not signed by the necessary deadline, a student’s enrolment for the following school year will not be confirmed.
