Tuition, Course Fees, and Books

There is no charge to PSEO students for tuition, books or fees for items that are required to participate in a course that do not become the property of the PSEO student. PSEO textbooks are the property of the post-secondary institution and must be returned to the bookstore.

Textbooks may be picked up one week prior to the start of the semester.

  1.  A class schedule must be brought in by the student or the parent/guardian and left at the bookstore when picking up books. 
  2. All books for the semester, including books for any late-starting classes, must be picked up by the third week of the semester.
  3. All textbooks and materials/lab kits must be returned to Riverland at the end of each semester. The return deadline for Spring 2022 is Monday, May 23. If books and materials are not returned by this date, PSEO students will be charged for those books and materials. 

*Books for the next term cannot be picked up until prior semester books have been returned.

PSEO students may be charged fees for the following:

Not returning textbooks or materials. Each student is required to return all textbooks and materials to Riverland by the due date each semester (listed above and on the sheet given to you when you pick up your books). If you do not return your books or materials students are responsible to pay the full price for books and a hold will be placed on their college account. If the PSEO student would like to purchase the textbooks at the end of the term, they may do so for 50% of new price.

Equipment. If the equipment required for a course becomes the property of the pupil after the course has ended, the student is responsible to pay for it. If a PSEO student can keep the item(s) (example – art supplies), the student must pay for them.

Placement testing. A student may be charged for placement testing.

The program does not cover general school supplies such as notebooks, pens, pencils, etc., or non-consumable supplies such as calculators, instrument rental, uniforms, etc.

There are a limited number of financial exclusions to the program, this includes courses under 1000 and textbooks not required for courses.  These must be paid for by the student.
