Some courses have books that will require a security deposit. Once you are registered and after you have received your course confirmation email, IF there are books, you will receive an email from your teacher advising you to contact our office to pay your deposit and pick up your books. Please notify the office when you would like to come in before arriving at our office, so as to have everything ready upon your arrival.

The deposit is $100 for all courses that have texts, except for our IASL11/ASL11 course, which is a $200 deposit. The resource deposit can be paid by credit card, debit card, cash, or cheque and is fully refundable upon return of all resources, in good and reuseable condition. If books are not returned within one month of your course completion or withdrawal date, you will forfeit your deposit. If the value of the books is more than your deposit, you will be invoiced for that amount. The intention of this policy is to ensure books are returned on a timely basis, and that all students receive their refund on a timely basis.


Processing of resource deposit refunds will only begin once all resources are returned.

  • Deposits paid by card are refunded through the Burnaby Online office debit machine, either in person or over the phone, immediately.
  • Deposits paid by cash or cheque are refunded by the Burnaby School Board office and may take up to 6 weeks to process and mail home.

**Please Note: International and Adult course fees are non-refundable
