Graduated Adults and Course Fees

As of May 1, 2015 the Ministry of Education withdrew funding for Graduated Adults seeking course upgrades. As a result of this change, we are now charging a fee of $570.00 per course.  Graduated Adults wishing to take our courses can register by giving your credit card number over the phone, or by paying directly at the North Coast Distance Education Office. Once we have received payment for the course it shall be opened up for students to begin. Please be advised that there are no refunds once payment has been made for a course. Call us for more information. * There are no course fees for Non-Graduated Adults.
