Columbia International College has a uniform policy that aligns with our prestigious program, academic standards and school identity.
Our CIC uniform identifies us as a community that takes pride in our school culture. Our uniform policy increases school safety, minimizes disruptions, easily identifies trespassers on CIC premises, and promotes improvement in student behaviour and decorum.
School Uniform Policy
- Students must be dressed in appropriate uniform attire at all times while on the school premises. This includes the hallways, cafeterias, classrooms, and while travelling to and from school
- All uniform items worn must be clean and well-maintained. Any student wearing a uniform item that does not meet the standard of the uniform policy will be required to comply to CIC standards
- The final determination as to whether any item of a student’s uniform is acceptable remains in the sole discretion of the Principal or Vice Principal or his or her designate
Consequences for Breach of Policy
Any student who disregards the Uniform Policy will be issued a uniform violation.
- Any student not in proper formal uniform will be required to go to the Campus Store and change into a loaned blazer or vest, dress shirt, tie, and dress pants and will pay a C$50 (per day/per item) fine for handling and cleaning.
Students in breach of this policy will be subject to monetary penalties, specifically:
- If a student misses the school bus from residence to school, as a result of a failure to comply with the school uniform policy, the cost of alternative transportation (YAA – taxi) will be the responsibility of the student
