Once your $500.00 deposit is received, a statement will be posted on the Self-Serve Portal in June, indicating tuition fees and the date they are due. Offers of admission will be rescinded if tuition is not paid by the due date, or if confirmation and deposit deadlines are not met.

8. Clinical Placements

It is not always possible to place students in the site of their choice. Applicants, when confirming acceptance into a program, agree to attend any placement site that Michener arranges. These placements may be anywhere in Ontario or, for some programs, across Canada.

Students in a placement site outside Ontario may be required to sign a liability waiver and purchase additional insurance coverage should workers’ compensation legislation not cover the placement. Regardless of location, students are required to pay all the costs associated with their placement (housing, travel, etc.).

Each clinical site has its own set of rules and regulations relating to staff responsibilities and functions. Students are required to become familiar with and adhere to these regulations.

9. Mandatory Health Requirements for the
2016-2017 Academic Year

Accepted students must fulfill all Michener health requirements and vulnerable sector check by the published admissions and clinical placement timelines for each program. These requirements meet the immunization standards and associated health practices in Ontario set forth in legislation, as well as the clinical placement agreement between Michener and its clinical partner sites.
