Cost & Payment Options

 

Course Costs

Recognizing that the costs of training can be a significant barrier to participants, we have worked to keep our fees low.  For those taking a course for personal or professional development, the fee is $580 per session. For those taking courses for academic credit, tuition is $790 per session.

Course fees for the Canadian School of Peacebuilding are higher than regular tuition because of the extra costs associated with bringing in high-quality instructors and students from around the world. The extra fees also help to cover events such as daily coffee breaks and other community-building activities.

Other Costs

Books are required for students taking a course for credit and will cost approximately $150 per course.

Payment Options

 

Payment from international applicants must be processed via Flywire.com, a secure, transparent and inexpensive service for international payments.  Applicants from Canada or the US may make payments via credit card, cheque (payable to Canadian Mennonite University), or money order. Email csop@cmu.ca for more information. Your application is not complete and your seat in the course is not reserved until full payment has been received.

Refund Policy

If a participant wishes to withdraw from a class, and does so by April 1, 2019, we will refund 100% of the tuition fee, minus a $40 administrative fee. This gives us time to contact others to fill that seat. A participant can receive a 75% refund if he or she withdraws between April 1 and the start of the second day of classes. However, in the case of an international student who must withdraw because his or her visa was denied, between April 1 and the first day of class we will provide a 100% refund, minus a $70 administrative fee. After the start of the second day of classes we will no longer give a refund. Please note that the $50 late application and payment fee is nonrefundable.  Refunds require 6-8 weeks to process.

Waseskun Canadian School of Peacebuilding Bursary

 

The Waseskun (the Cree word for “the moment after a storm when the sun begins to shine through”) Canadian School of Peacebuilding Bursary has been established to provide financial support to an Indigenous or Métis participant. All Indigenous and Métis CSOP participants are eligible to apply for the Waseskun Bursary. Funds for bursary assistance are limited. CSOP/CMU cannot guarantee any assistance, but will consider and assess each application carefully in relation to all other applications received. To apply, please submit a completed Waseskun CSOP Bursary Application 2019 along with a CSOP application (csop.cmu.ca/registration).

Unfortunately, beyond the Waseskun CSOP Bursary, we do not have scholarships, student sponsorships or travel subsidies available this year, though we hope this will be a possibility in the future.
