Tuition Refund Plan

The Tuition Refund Plan (TRP) provides a parent their only opportunity for a refund of tuition and boarding fees when a student is absent or withdrawn for reasons such as the following:

  • Personal
  • Illness or injury
  • Change of objective
  • Death of parent or student
  • Disciplinary dismissal
  • Scholastic failure
  • Financial problems
  • Emotional difficulties
  • Transfer of family

The TRP is mandatory for parents who choose one of the payment plans for extending their payments over the school year. The TRP is optional for parents who pay tuition and boarding fees in full by July 31 or upon acceptance of the student at the school. Submissions for enrolment in the Tuition Refund Plan will not be accepted after September 3, 2019.

Why is this plan important?

A SMUS education is a substantial investment. The TRP protects that financial commitment against loss due to any of the reasons listed above. Every year students are forced to withdraw for many different reasons. Because of the nature of the school's budget, your financial obligation to the school is for the full annual tuition and boarding fees as stated in the school’s fee schedules and enrolment contract. The school cannot afford to refund the tuition or cancel unpaid obligations if your child is forced to withdraw.

In the event of a withdrawal, the Tuition Refund Plan will pay benefits (subject to its terms, conditions and limitations and based on the amount insured) after all obligations to the school have been met.


  • Day Students: $375.00 ($357.15 plus $17.85 GST)
  • Boarding Students: $750.00 ($714.30 plus $35.70 GST)
  • ELL and International Boarding Students: $1,100 ($1,047.60 plus $52.40 GST)
