FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT VISA ISSUANCE
What is the visa interview like?
There are many different methods of applying for a Canadian visa. In some countries,
you can drop your visa application and materials in a drop-box. In others, it is possible to
mail in the application. In many countries, an interview is required.
The Canadian consul who interviews you is required to determine that your documents
are genuine, that you intend to enrol as a full-time student, that you have enough money
to support yourself and will not need to use the Canadian social welfare system, and that
you intend to return home after you finish your studies.
The consul may ask a variety of questions, such as:
ď‚· Where are you going to study?
ď‚· What are you going to study?
ď‚· How will you use that degree/diploma in your home country?
ď‚· Is this the first time you are applying for a student visa?
ď‚· Have you ever traveled to Canada before? If yes, what did you do there?
ď‚· Do you plan to remain in Canada after your studies?
ď‚· What qualifies you for the studies you are going to undertake?
ď‚· Does your family (or other financial sponsor) really have enough money to support you?
ď‚· Are any members of your family currently living in Canada? If yes, what are they doing
ď‚· If you are married, is your spouse going to travel with you? What about your
children, if you have children?
ď‚· When do you plan to finish your studies?
ď‚· What will be your first destination in Canada?

If sending any correspondence by mail, allow sufficient time for mail to be delivered to
Canada. Most items typically require 10 days to two weeks from within Canada and even
more time when sent from other countries.
The consul who interviews you may be overworked and tired, and probably has many
people to interview besides you, so the consul may or may not be friendly, and may or
may not ask you several questions. It is important to convey a positive personal
impression when you interview with the consul, so that the consul doesnâ€™t deny the visa
to you for â€śpersonalâ€ť Reasons. Conveying a â€śpositive impressionâ€ť means such things
ď‚· Be clean and neat in your appearance.
ď‚· Look at the consul when talking with him or her.
ď‚· Answer questions directly and honestly.
ď‚· Certainly, do not make any untrue statements.
ď‚· Answer only the questions asked.
You might ask:
I am nervous about applying for a visa. What are the reasons that visas are denied?
The two main reasons visas are denied are Inadequate financial support and Failure to
prove â€śnon-immigrant intent.â€ť If the consul believes you do not have enough money to
be a full-time student, the consul will not issue you a visa. It is important to take proof of
your ability to pay for your tuition, fees, living expenses, books, and health insurance.
Usually a bank statement or a letter from your department (if you have a graduate
assistantship) will be sufficient.
Proving â€śnon-immigrant intentâ€ť means that you need to be prepared to convince the
consul, if s/he asks you, that you intend to return to your home country after you finish
your studies in Canada. The law requires a consul to deny a student visa to anyone the
consul believes intends to remain in Canada permanently.
You will be in a good position to prove â€śnon-immigrant intentâ€ť if you have a job in your
country you will return to, or if there is a good chance you can get a job in your country
with the degree you will receive from our College, or if you have close family members
there (parents, spouse, children), or if you own property there.
What if my visa is denied?
Ask the consul to give you a written explanation for the denial. Contact our Admissions Office immediately
to explain what happened and mail us the written denial. Give us the date and place of the denial and, if
possible, the name of the consular officer who issued it. Sometimes, if it is clear there has been a simple
misunderstanding, or if your documents were not acceptable to the consul, we can provide the additional
information needed to help you get the visa. Sometimes, though, our Admissions Office can do nothing to
help. The law concerning student visas gives consular officers very wide latitude, so their decisions can
International Student Refund Policy.
International students who are applying from outside or within Canada and are granted a study permit will not be refunded under any circumstances. If any tuition fee is paid in advance, it can only be refunded when the student submits their refusal letter from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Canada College of Education ONLY accepts the refusal letter from IRCC. As soon as a student is granted with their study permit, (regardless to if he/she comes to Canada or not) we are unable to provide you with a refund. The tuition fees are non-transferable.
International and local students can transfer from other schools to DMCC and receive a Letter of Admission for immigration purposes. Students can register and receive our discounted package. Students who are dismissed will not be eligible for a refund. International students who wish to change schools are required to notify us 30 days prior to departure. The first month of study will be non-refundable regardless to the student is attending classes or not. If you choose to withdraw from DMCC, we will require proof that your VISA status is lawful. You are required to show your Boarding Pass if you are leaving Canada earlier than anticipated. Alternatively, if you are attending another academic institution, you are required to re-apply for a new study permit and you must provide DMCC with valid documentation to demonstrate your eligibility to stay in Canada. Students who have applied through an agent are required to contact their agent for information on any possible refund process.
