Information about Registering
Register as early as possible to ensure a position in our courses. It is advantageous to email in advance to be sure that your requested course has availability.  Once you have confirmation of availability in your desired course send a completed registration package with your registration fee to our school address. To ensure we are getting serious applicants, our registration fee is non refundable but will be taken off the students tuition. Only when we have received your registration and fees will a position be held.

Information Package and Tuition Payment
Once a seat is confirmed with a completed registration form and deposit, a confirmation letter and contract will be sent out, along with information on the school, the course(s) and options for accommodations. The contract will outline the payment schedule: 50% of tuition is due 8 weeks prior to the start of the course and the remainder is due on the first day of class. This allows the office time to contact any waitlisted applicants if a registered student is unable to attend that session.

Accepted methods of payment: Interac e-transfer, cash, cheque, Transferwise, credit card, bank transfer (transaction fees apply to cc and bank transfer).

Arrival at the School
Classes start each morning at 9 a.m. On day one, give yourself time to arrive a little early, get settled in and meet you fellow classmates before your instructor and the Student Advisor start your orientation. ISBA supplies lunch on the first day so that you can relax and get accustomed to the campus and the course.

At ISBA we start to make sawdust on day 1! Regular attendance is a necessity, we cover a lot of material in our courses. Our Instructors have been guiding students successfully for years.  Individual drive is linked with success. Refer to the student testimonials and see what our alumni have to say.

ISBA keeps a current list of rentals available on Gabriola. The student advisor will send a copy of the list as well as a map of Gabriola Island showing shopping, restaurant, pubs, and other points of interests, in the information package that is sent to each student.
