B.C. residency, which includes both the student and legal guardian, must be proven to the Ministry of Education, and a copy of the required documents must be kept in our files. We require copies of a legal guardian’s B.C. Drivers License and copies of the legal guardian and student’s B.C. Medical Card. A declaration of B.C. residency is required as well for the student file.
If a student is staying with a relative in B.C., but with parents or guardians in other provinces, there must be a legal transfer of legal guardianship to the relative living in B.C. for residency tuition fees to be in effect. If no legal guardian is living in B.C. for the student attending school, Non-Resident Canadian tuition fees apply.
