TUITION & REGISTRATION FEES
The tuition fee is $320 for 25 hours of instruction plus additional $50 for textbooks. Each textbook covers its entire course level (3 courses).
All students will receive a free annual IIC membership. Membership grants free access to the Istituto’s library and films collection, and also free admission to selected Italian film screenings, and cultural events. Annual IIC membership for non-students costs $50.
Fees are payable by cheque, credit or debit cards, and cash.
Cheques should be paid to the order of "Istituto Italiano di Cultura."
CANCELLATION & REFUNDS
The Istituto reserves the right to cancel any course should the number of students registered for that course be insufficient. There are no make up classes.
In this case, cheques on hold will be returned. No refund is granted after course commencement. However, if a student is not able to attend a course and notifies us within 7 days from the date of commencement, fees can be accredited to the subsequent term.
Textbooks and optional course material can be purchased directly at the Istituto Italiano di Cultura.
To reschedule a private lesson, a 24 hours notice by phone must be given to the teacher to avoid a one hour penalty deduction. Private lessons must be completed within three months from the date of the registration.
A placement test can be taken before registration to determine proficiency.
We also offer official proficiency tests at the Istituto.
Private lessons for individuals are designed especially for those who have limited time to learn or perfect the language.
The course can be oriented toward the student’s particular field of interest and scheduled to best suit the student's time availability.
