International Student FAQ

I’m an international student and will need to apply for a study permit. What does this mean for me?

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is continuing to accept and process online applications for study permits. We recommend you review Study Permit Application Requirements and Processing Times to get an idea of when would be the best time to apply. King's DLI number is O18713250142. For more information about the study permit application process, visit the Government of Canada website.

You will receive an email with travel deadlines and instructions after you are admitted.


I’m an international student and concerned about paying the $5,000 deposit in the current situation. What happens to my money if I can’t come?

Tuition Deposits are normally non-refundable. However, international tuition deposits:

  1. May be carried over to a future semester with one or repeated delayed/deferred admissions as necessary.
  2. Are refundable if your most recent study permit application has been refused.


What is the international student admission deposit?

International applicants will be required to pay a non-refundable initial deposit of $500 at the time of initial admission to King's university.

Please note that the international student's final admission and study permit request letter will be given once the $500 deposit has been paid. The student is still required to pay the registration fee of $5000.

The requirement is as follows:

  • Initial admission -> $500 Initial deposit
  • Final admission and Study Permit Request Letter -> $5,000 Registration Fee (formerly Tuition Deposit)
