Terms and Conditions

 The Mindview Academy registration form covers each student for the full duration of their studies. During the registration period each student must provide Mindview Academy with a copy of their updated school transcript, showing the required prerequisites for all registered subjects. In the absence of an updated transcript means courses that require a perquisite will not be granted a credit upon completion. If the student does not have the required perquisite, Mindview Academy may change, cancel or alter registered courses, in coordination with the parents and student. All information provided should be correct and true to the best of the student’s knowledge. Each student must acknowledge that they have fully read and understood the registration terms and conditions. Finally, each student should agree to abide by the Code of Conduct explained in the Mindview Academy Course Calendar. A copy is available on our website.

  

Dropping a Course

The procedure for dropping a course is that student must make a cancellation request to the office, in writing, within two weeks from the first day of classes. Students under 18 years of age, require a letter from their parent or legal guardian.  After making a cancellation request, the student’s file will be updated and a refund will be given. Failure to attend a course is not equivalent to dropping a course. Students will be charged for all registered courses regardless of their attendance.

 

 Refund Policy

Refunds for registered courses will be granted up to the first two weeks of classes. No refunds will be issued following this time period. Students above the age of 18 or their parent or guardian are responsible for tuition payments regardless of the student’s attendance or participation.

The course schedule may be altered without prior notice to accommodate changing enrolment and instructor’s needs. In the event of a course cancellation, the school will issue a full refund for the affected course. Refunds will be issued by cheque, to the student or parent/guardian.

In special circumstances, students can transfer one or more courses to another term or retake them, subject to course availability. Possible circumstances which would apply are:

  • Student is not satisfied with his/ her performance and needs better marks

  • Student has missed several classes due to illness, personal issues, work, etc.

  • Student realizes that the course load is too heavy

  • Change in his/ her normal routine or schedule such as: work, social life, sports, after school activities, medical, family issues, etc.

In these cases, the school may waive part or all of the course fees, at their discretion. Courses cannot be transferred to another student.

 

 Textbook Purchases

Students requiring textbooks for their courses are required to pay a $130 deposit for each textbook and will be refunded $100 at the end of the semester as long as the textbook is in similar condition. Textbooks with missing and/or severely torn pages, damaged book spine, water damage or other severe damage will not be accepted by the school. Textbooks with minor damage will be accepted by the school, however a portion of the deposit will go to cover the repair of the textbook.

Tutoring is available for all subjects 7 days a week; Monday to Friday between 4 pm to 9:00 pm and Saturday between 9:00 am to 9:00 pm. Students who wish to cancel or change their tutoring appointment should notify the school at least 24 hours before their scheduled session.  Students who do not notify the school in advance will be billed the normal fee, even if they are late or absent.

  

 

Definition of a Credit

Each successful completion of a course for which a minimum of 110 hours has been scheduled earns one credit. Each credit is granted to the student by the principal of a secondary school on behalf of the Ontario Minister of Education.

 

Course Coding System

The course code consists of a course title and a five-character code. The Ministry of Education designates the first five characters; the school or board determines the sixth character.
