Convenience Fees

When paying with a Credit Card, a non-refundable convenience fee from 4% - 6% of the total amount will be applied. A convenience fee, sometimes referred to as a credit or debit card "service fee" is established by third party credit or debit card issuers to cover the transaction costs of online purchases. If the payment is international, credit card processors take an additional 1% since it's considered cross-border.

Vancouver Animation School does not receive any portion of convenience or service fee payments. Additionally, these fees are subject to change by third party credit and debit card issuers.

To avoid convenience fees from credit card issuers, you can always use a flat fee payment method such as direct deposit, wire transfer, or use a flat fee processor such as World Remit.

Quality of Education Matters

We believe in teaching innovative skills that lead to creative careers, and prompt to personal and professional fulfillment.  We developed a fantastic school with strong educational programs that welcome you, work for you, and care for you.
