Student Services FAQ

Tuition deposit

Once you have been offered admission or conditional admission into a program at NAIT, you will receive an e-letter requesting payment of a non-refundable and non-transferable tuition deposit.

Check your MyNAIT Portal for e-letters and payment deadlines. This deposit confirms that you have accepted the offer of admission to study at NAIT. It will be credited towards your tuition fees when you enrol in a course.

Please visit the Refund Policies page for information regarding tuition deposit refunds for study permit denial.

How to accept your offer

After receiving a letter of admission, you’ll need to pay a required tuition deposit. Because the application process allows you to apply to 2 different programs at the same time, you may be accepted into multiple programs. Please read about Accepting an Offer of Admission for more information for next steps on program choice.
