Registration Process

A requirement of admission as a Registered Student is that individuals be of good character and reputation. Once accepted as a Registered Student with the CICBV, you will be required to comply with the Institute’s By-laws, Code of Ethics and Practice Standards.

IMPORTANT CHANGES to Re-Enrollment and Exam Opt-out Procedures

Starting in the Winter 2018 Term, which begins January 2018, the following changes will be implemented with respect to course re-enrollment and exam opt-out procedures:

  • Students who failed or opted out of an exam in a previous semester (i.e., Spring/Summer 2017 or prior) and are eligible to re-enrol at a reduced course fee must re-enrol in the Winter 2018 Term in order to receive the reduced course fee. If such Students do not re-enrol in the Winter 2018 Term, they will lose their eligibility to receive a lower fee. No exceptions will be made, and no extensions will be granted. For clarity, if such Students do not re-enroll in the Winter 2018 Term, a full course fee will apply when they do enrol.
  • Students who opt-out of their Winter 2018 (and future) exams must re-enroll in the immediate subsequent term to be eligible for the reduced course fee. For example, students who opt-out of the Winter 2018 Term exams by [opt-out date] must re-enrol in the Spring/Summer 2018 Term in order to receive a reduced course fee. Students who do not re-enrol in the immediate subsequent term will lose their eligibility to receive a lower fee. Students who fail the course exam are not eligible to re-enroll at the lower fee.
