NEW STUDENT GUIDE JANUARY 2013
REQUIRED READING FOR ALL STUDENTS
NEW STUDENT GUIDE
You are required to read this to help you prepare for your studies at George Brown College. Students who deferred from the previous semester and re-applied to the January 2013 semester are also required to follow these steps. MANDATORY STEPS Confirmation and Payment by Offer Expiry Date 1. Confirm and Pay your fees before the Offer Expiry Date on your Acceptance Letter and Confirmation/Invoice Form. 2. Sign the Confirmation/Invoice Form and return with the Proof of Payment by fax (International Centre fax: 416-415-2120 or 416-415-4722 or email attachment to your Admissions Officer) if paying by credit card or bank transfer (attach the bank transfer receipt) and if paying by Money Order or Bank Draft send by mail or courier to the International Centre well before the due date. 3. Deferred students from previous semesters with payment already in a George Brown account must also submit to the International Centre or to your Admissions Officer a signed Confirmation/Invoice Form for the January 2013 semester to ensure a place. 4. Sending the signed Confirmation/Invoice Form and the Fees/ Proof of Payment on or before the Confirmation Due Date are both required to secure a seat in your program. 5. Payment of fees. Payment by bank transfer is only available for fee payments sent from outside Canada and takes longer than any other payment method. If paying by bank transfer, indicate Student Name, Student ID and Date of Birth on the Bank Transfer details to avoid delays or loss of payment. Send a copy of the bank transfer receipt to your Admissions Officer by e-mail or fax. If payment is not received by the College, you cannot register for your program. A Late Penalty Fee of $125.00 is charged for payments received after the due date, but only if the program is still open. Please note that confirmation and payment do not automatically register you in your program. Follow steps 9 to 11 to register for your courses. Stu-View Password Reset Requirement 6. The Stu-View Password in your Acceptance Letter is valid as of the print date but you are required to go to http://service.georgebrown.ca to change/reset your password immediately Page 2 of 13
