STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL DIETARY NEEDS:

PLEASE INQUIRE WITH THE DIRECTOR OF ADMISSIONS UPON APPLICATION AS TO WHETHER CLBI IS ABLE TO ACCOMMODATE YOUR NEEDS.  CLBI RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CHARGE ADDITIONAL FEES FOR SPECIAL DIETARY NEEDS AND MAY REQUEST A PHYSICIAN'S NOTE REGARDING THE HEALTH CONDITIONS THAT NECESSITATE THE DIET.

PLEASE NOTE: STUDENTS IN THEIR SECOND YEAR AT CLBI ARE REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE IN A CROSS-CULTURAL MISSIONS EXPERIENCE. STUDENTS MUST PAY $1500 TOWARD THEIR TRIP COST. IN ADDITION, STUDENTS COLLABORATE WITH THE IMPACT TEAM TO RAISE FUNDS TO COVER THE REMAINDER OF THE NECESSARY FUNDS.

It is not expected that changes will be made to the fees as they are listed, however CLBI reserves the right to make alterations to fees up to one month prior to the first day of classes for the respective school year.

Payment Options

It is the responsibility of the student to arrange for the payment of fees. Students awaiting student loans, bursaries or scholarships must arrange personal interim financing until these funds are available.

Option #1

  • Pay all fees for the full year on registration day and receive a $75.00 discount.

Option #2

  • Pay all fees for each semester in full by the due dates.
    Semester 1 due by the first full day of classes in September
    Semester 2 due by the first full day of classes in January
  • Outstanding balances after these dates are subject to 1.5% interest, charged monthly where a payment plan is not in place.

Option #3

  • 50% of each semester must be paid by the first full day of classes in the given semester. The remainder may be paid with post-dated cheques or preauthorized debits. There is a financing fee of $20.00/cheque for this service.
  • Each semester must be paid in full by the beginning of the last month of the semester. (i.e. December 1 and April 1)
  • If a payment plan is not in place by September 30th, the student may be asked to leave.
  • If there is an outstanding balance remaining for Semester 1 on the last day of school before Christmas, the student cannot return for Semester 2.
  • Any student with an outstanding balance will not be allowed to participate in graduation exercises. Diplomas/transcripts will not be released until all fees are paid.
  • There will be a $20.00 charge on any returned cheques. This will also result in interest being charged on the unpaid balance.

Refunding of Fees

Any student who withdraws or is dismissed will be charged board and room for the week in which the withdrawal or dismissal takes place. Board and room fees due to the student will be refunded at the rate of 90% of the prorated charge after all financial obligations and withdrawal procedures have been met.

Students who withdraw will have their tuition fees, activity fee and general fee reassessed according to the following table: (The application and registration fees are nonrefundable.)

Refund per semester:
Within 48 hours of registration day 100%
Remainder of first week 90%
Second week 80%
Third week 70%
Fourth week 50%
Fifth week 30%
Sixth week 0%

  • Students who are dismissed will not have any tuition fees or activity fees refunded.
  • The yearbook fee may be refunded if the student terminates prior to the beginning of the second semester, but not later.
  • The refund is calculated according to the above table, based on the date that the official fully completed withdrawal form, bearing the signatures of the necessary school officials, is received by the business office.
  • Special cases may be dealt with on their merits by administration, and may be referred to the Executive Committee of the Board for recommendation.

Financial Assistance

Several scholarships and bursaries are available to assist students to pay for their educational expenses at CLBI. It is expected that financial assistance in this manner supplement the efforts of students and their families rather than replacing these efforts. Monetary support through CLBI is generally granted only to students in good standing academically and personally. Assistance is distributed according to scholarship, Christian character, contribution to school life and financial need. Applications for bursaries and scholarships are available during the first semester each year and are awarded at the CLBI Christmas banquet to be applied to tuition in January for second semester fees. Special consideration is given to students in their second-year of studies at CLBI.
