**Tuition & Fees Due Dates and Late Payment Charges
CBTE Students are invoiced for tuition and fees three times each year with payments due on September 1, January 1, and May 1. Invoices will be emailed to the student's @nbseminary.ca email address prior to each payment due date and will include a link for online payment. Tuition & Fees are payable upon receipt of the invoice and before the payment due date. A late fee of 3% will be applied to any outstanding balance at the start of the second month of the term. Please note that failure to pay in full by the end of the second month of the term could result in immediate suspension from the online platform and a review of the student's continuation in the program.
