Payment of Tuition Fees

Delinquent accounts may be subject to a hold being placed on report cards, transcripts, and other school records.

For accounts that remain outstanding after 45 days the school may refer the matter over to the school’s legal counsel to pursue collection.All costs related to this (including all legal fees and disbursements whether or not a legal proceeding is commenced) will become the responsibility of the family and will be added to their bill.In the event that CIS deems, in its sole discretion, to engage attorneys to pursue the collection of unpaid fees and late payment charges, the family shall pay the fees and disbursements incurred by CIS on an indemnity basis.

In addition, in any situation where a late payment has exceeded 45 days, it will be up to the discretion of the school administration as to whether or not the student will be readmitted to the school following the receipt of the overdue payment.

If any payment remains due at the end of a tuition period or upon withdrawal from the school, no transcripts, transfers, or other records will be released until full payment, including late payment administrative charges are received.
