Refund Policy
Virtual Extension School of Canada does not issue refunds. Within hours of enrolment, our administration undertakes many tasks including activating the student account, completing the enrolment, contracting the teacher, establishing necessary files, tracking the enrolment for Ministry purposes, etc. Even if the student does not begin the course, the preliminary work in our office will be completed.

Course Transfer Policy
A student has the option to transfer from VES to the main campus in Canada at any official starting date within the 10-month completion deadline.
* If a student transfers to the main campus in Canada, then there will be additional fees required to study in Canada. The student will be required to complete enrolled courses within the original 10-month deadline, based on the enrolment date of the original course. If a student requests a transfer, an administrative fee will apply.

Student Enrolment Policy
There is no set schedule for a student to follow the VES courses, nor are there due dates for completing assignments. The student may start their course within a week of registration and move through it at their own pace (Note: registrations that occur on holidays will be enrolled on the next day). The only restriction is that the course must be completed within 10 months of enrolment. A student will be removed from a course if it is not completed within 10 months.

Course Prerequisite Policy
Certain courses require the student to have completed a prerequisite course. It is the student’s responsibility to provide a copy of an accredited school’s student transcript, report card or credit counselling summary showing successful completion of the prerequisite course. This document should be sent to info@ves-canada.com upon registration. Also, students are eligible to apply PLAC Exam for any specific courses. VES will arrange an evaluation test by VES teacher.

A student may register at any time and, upon registration, will have access to the first unit of a course. However, the rest of the content will remain locked until prerequisite evidence has been provided.
If the student has not completed the prerequisite course but has completed an equivalent course outside of Ontario, is a mature student, or has higher-level education, they may be eligible for a prerequisite waiver by taking the PLAC exam. The student may request that a prerequisite be waived by submitting a Prerequisite Waiver Application to the VES admission Team prior to registration.

Confidentiality Policy
Please note that VES may communicate with parents or legal guardians of students under the age of 18. In addition, VES will communicate with any student’s home school and applicable post-secondary institutions or organizations. Students over the age of 18 will receive an email upon registration requesting permission to allow VES to communicate with third-party individuals.
Through the VES website and learning management system, you will have access to third-party organizations, such as chat providers, Examity, and Bongo. Only basic information, such as your name and email address, is shared with these organizations for the purpose of accessing and using their services. By accessing the websites or platforms of any third-party organization through the VES website or learning management system, you are agreeing to the policies and procedures of that organization.

Reach Ahead Policy
The Reach Ahead program is for elementary students who wish to take high school courses. The principal of the student’s elementary school, together with the principal of VES and the student’s parent, will decide if it is appropriate for the student to enroll in high school courses. VES adheres to all standard school practices in accommodating a Reach Ahead student by recording and granting achievement as necessary. Students are typically eligible for Reach Ahead during the Grade 8 school year or the summer before Grade 9, as outlined in the Ontario Schools: Policy and Program Requirements section Students and parents are asked to submit a Reach Ahead Enrolment Request prior to registration.
All policies may be modified at any time at the Virtual Extension School of Canada website. The use of Virtual Extension School of Canada courses indicates that the student and/or parent/guardian accepts these aforementioned policies.
