Cost & Payment Options

 

Course Costs

Recognizing that the costs of training can be a barrier to participants, we have worked hard to keep our fees low.

$592.00 – Fees for participants taking a course for personal or professional development

$806.00 – Tuition for participants taking a course for academic credit

All non-CMU participants will be required to pay a non-refundable advance deposit of $100. This fee will be applied to the course fees above.

Applications received after April 1 will be charged a non-refundable late fee of $50 which must be submitted with the application and advance deposit.

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.

  • Up until one week before classes start – 100% refund of all fees, minus the $100 non-refundable advance deposit and the $50 late fee, if applicable.
  • One week prior to the start of classes and 9:00am first day of class – 50% refund of all fees.
  • After the start of the first day of classes we will no longer issue a refund.

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 2020 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.

Withdrawal Policy for Academic Credit Students

The last day to delete a course from your registration is 8:30 AM on the second day of the course.

The last day for voluntary withdrawl from a course is July 15, 2020.
