What is Fee Guards?

Fee Guards give International students and their parents total peace of mind, by rescuing them from the danger of financial loss which they face in worst case scenarios such as:

  • College Shutdown by local government
  • College blacklisted by local council
  • Fake student visa

Fee Guard gives a helping hand to the International students by providing a full refund of the total college fee. Doing so, we ensure they can apply to a different college without causing any delay.

In which circumstances my membership will be voided?

Fee Guards membership will be void, if a student

 

  • Willingly decides to drops out in between
  • Decides to work full time.
  • Fails to graduate from the program.

 

Void membership will also be applicable, if for any disciplinary reason a college expels the student.

In which circumstances my membership will not be voided?

Void membership will not be applicable, in case a student takes a semester break and start working full time. As the student is going to resume his full-time studies again after break, he/she will be eligible to take full benefits of Fee Guards protection.

What if I extend my student visa?

You need to sign up with Fee Guards again, for protection of your full college fees of another year.

 

(for ex, John’s parents took Fee guards protection while enrolling him in 2 years Business Management program at Sheridan college beginning from Sept 2017 to Apr 2019. Now upon completion of the program John wishes to enroll into Accounting program for another 1 year at same college.

 

In this case, John’s parents again need to avail Fee Guard Protection because their previous protection membership has ended with the completion of former program.

 

If John’s parents don’t avail membership for the latter program, they will not be able to claim any college fee if the college shuts or closes down.)
