Refunds and Withdrawals

Post-Secondary / Graduate Certificate / Bachelor’s Degree / Technical & Skills Training Full-time Programs


In accordance with the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development Tuition Fee Operating Procedures, students must submit formal written notification within 10 business days of the beginning of a semester to receive a refund of fees for the current term. Written notification can be made by completing a Withdrawal from Program Form. If you do not officially withdraw at the Registrar’s Office you will be responsible for all fees assessed. Non-attendance does not constitute an Official Withdrawal.

If you are unable to attend because your OSAP was denied, please contact Student Accounts at 905-735-2211, ext 7555 or email for information regarding payment plans.

For more information about withdrawing, visit Enrolment and Registration.
