Tuition Adjustment Program 2012/13
Tuition per family is the smaller of the number in the following table and 12% of net income (Canada Revenue Notice of Assessment, Line 236, household total or accepted 3rd Party documenation).
|Total Tuition||# Children in Half-day Kin|
|# Children in Full-day Kin or Grades 1-8||0||$3,300.00||$4,950.00|
Example: Family with 1 child in Class 5, 1 child in Class 2, and 1 child in Half-day Kindergarten.
Total tuition from table above is $9,901.50, calculated as follows:
1st child (5): 100% x $5,875.00 = $5,875.00
2nd child (2): 50% x $5,875.00 = $2,937.50
3rd child (K): 33% x $3,300.00 = $1,089.00
But if, say, the net income on line 236 of the Notice of Assessment for one adult in this family is $21,000 and for their partner it is $9,000, then the total tuition will only be $30,000 multiplied by 12%, which comes to $3,600.
Foreign student fee
$4,800 in addition to tuition fees above (*not recognized for B.C. Government Educational Operating Grant Funding).
