Tuition Payment Policies

1. Tuition is invoiced monthly and is due on the 1st of each month (September – June). Parents are required to make payment arrangements before the school year begins. MEI Schools offers the following options:

  • Annual payment: Payment for the entire year paid by cheque or credit card by September 1st. $50 prepayment discount per student will apply if payment is received by August 1st. Annual payment instruction form must be submitted for each school year.
  • Semi-Annual payment: Two equal payments (due September 1st and February 1st) paid by two cheques or pre-authorized credit card. Semi-annual payment instruction form must be submitted for each school year.
  • Monthly payments: Payment by pre-authorized debit will be collected on the first day of each school month (September to June). Monthly pre-authorized payment plans must be submitted once, and then are carried forward and adjusted annually.

2. Late payments and NSFs are subject to a $35 administration charge.

3. Students who transfer in before the 16th of the month will be charged a full month’s tuition. Those who transfer
in after the 15th of the month will be charged a half month’s tuition for that month.

4. Students who withdraw from MEI Schools must give 30 days’ notice or pay one month’s tuition in lieu of notice.

5. Tuition accounts are expected to be in good standing before payments for extra-curricular activities will be
accepted and applied towards those activities.

6. Continued failure to make payments on time may result in the student being asked to leave MEI Schools.

7. If a family is unable to comply with the above policies, they must communicate this to MEI Administration and
Finance Office and alternative arrangements may be made if extenuating circumstances exist.

A charitable donation receipt for tax purposes will be issued on an annual basis for the portion of net tuition paid that pertains to religious instruction. The amount of this receipt varies from year to year and is calculated in accordance with the Canada Revenue Agency requirements.
