Full-time postsecondary students
Both domestic and international students who complete an Application for Term or Complete Program Withdrawal Form by the 10th day of the term are entitled to a partial refund of tuition and ancillary fees as follows:
Within 10 business days of the beginning of a semester or the beginning of the period for which the student paid fees, students who are eligible for funding under the College Funding Framework are entitled to a refund of the full tuition and ancillary fees for the semester or program period, less the tuition deposit, and a refund in full of any tuition and ancillary fees paid in advance for subsequent semesters.
All fees are subject to a non-refundable tuition deposit in accordance with policy set by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development. For domestic, full-time students, fees are subject to a $500 non-refundable deposit. For international students, the non-refundable registration charge varies by program and will be calculated as follows:
International Student Tuition Fee ÷ Domestic Student Tuition Fee x $500
