For courses delivered by distance

For detailed information, please read Policy A20.

For courses offered by Distance Education or online such as A & P Online, Palliative Care online and Math for Nurses:

Full tuition minus $25 administration fee will be made if the course is dropped before the course start date or if the college cancels the course. The course will be deleted from the student’s record and will not appear on the transcript.

80% of tuition will be refunded if the course is dropped any time before day 10 of the course has elapsed. The course will be marked with a VW on the student’s transcript, indicating voluntary withdrawal. No credit for any fees will be granted for any course dropped anytime between day 11 and 50% of the course elapsed. The course will be marked with a VW on the student’s transcript, indicating voluntary withdrawal.

Courses cannot be dropped after 51% of the course has elapsed. The course will appear on the student’s transcript with a non-passing grade.

For courses delivered face-to-face

Requests for refunds of tuition received prior to the second scheduled class will be granted, less a $25 administration fee plus applicable taxes. No refunds will be granted for requests received after the second scheduled class.

Requests for refunds of tuition for short one or two-day courses will be granted, less $25 administration fees plus applicable taxes, only if received five or more working days prior to the course start date. Students registering for one or two-day courses less than five working days prior to course start date will not be granted refunds.

Students dropping a course or requesting a refund must notify the Admissions and Registration office in person or by telephone (appropriate identification will be required if by telephone).

Students wishing to register for a course after the start date must receive permission from the Centre of Continuing Studies office. No additional fees will be charged for late registration, but full tuition and Students’ Association fees are due on the date of registration; no refunds will be granted unless the student drops prior to the start of the second scheduled class.

Full refunds will be made if the college cancels a course.
