What does this mean for me?

  • How do I receive a 100 per cent refund?

    You have 10 working days from the first day of classes to decide if you want to change your course load or withdraw and receive a 100 per cent refund. 

    If you are reducing your course load, you are responsible to drop your course(s) through MyCampus by the posted deadline. If you are also receiving OSAP, you must submit an OSAP Application Update form, located on MyCampus under the Documents tab. We encourage you to drop off this form in person, so we can inform you of any changes to your OSAP funding.

    We encourage you to talk to your academic advisor before withdrawing from the university. If you still wish to withdraw after meeting with your advisor, you are responsible for completing the Program Withdrawal form by the stated deadline. If you also receive OSAP, you must also complete the Notice of Withdrawal for OSAP Students form—we recommend that you drop off this form in person, so we can provide you with information on how this can impact your OSAP funding.

    All forms are located on MyCampus, under the Documents tab.

    Please note: If you are a new student withdrawing from the university, your refund does not include the $500 non-refundable deposit.

  • What does a 50 per cent refund mean?

    You have 20 working days from the first day of classes to decide if you want to change your course load or withdraw and receive a 50 per cent refund. The 50 per cent refund is applicable to your tuition fees only and does not include:

    • Compulsory ancillary fees
    • Flat fees
    • Course- and program-specific fees (if applicable)

    Learn more about your fees.

    If you are reducing your course load, you are responsible to drop your course(s) through MyCampus by the posted deadline. If you are also receiving OSAP, you must submit an OSAP Application Update form, located on MyCampus under the Documents tab. We encourage you to drop off this form in person, so we can inform you of any changes to your OSAP funding.

    We encourage you to talk to your academic advisor before withdrawing from the university.

    All forms are located on MyCampus, under the Documents tab.

    Please note: If you are a new student withdrawing from the university, your refund does not include the $500 non-refundable deposit.

  • What if I missed both refund deadlines?

    If you missed both refund deadlines, visit the academic schedule to view the last day to withdraw and still receive a 'W' grade on your transcript. You are not eligible for any monetary refund. Any courses you are registered in after this date will be graded.

    We understand that life happens and you may have had extenuating circumstances that led to you missing deadlines. We look at these on a case-by-case basis—visit our appeals page for more information on late withdrawal and the steps you need to take.
