Are you in need of financial support?
The CGA-BC Educational Foundation provides bursaries to help CGA students in need of financial assistance due to extraordinary social or economic circumstances.

Basic Tuition Fee for 2014-2015  

It is of particular importance for you to maintain your CGA-BC student status on the eve of the merger to the CPA Program, since only Active students who are unable to complete their remaining CGA courses by the end of session 4 2014-2015 will be able to bridge to the CPA Program in accordance with the grandfather clause.
The grandfathering clause is a merger policy put in place to allow CGA students to retain recognition of their degree in the transition to the CPA Program, as well retrain recognition of any courses completed beyond 10 years ago in the transition to the CPA Program.
Students who choose to leave the CGA Program and apply to the CPA Program thereafter will not be recognized under the grandfathering clause, but rather the standard admission requirements of the CPA Program at the time of their application.
If you have any questions regarding your plans for the year ahead, please us at
