To take advantage of online and telephone banking services, students must register with their bank or financial institution.

Where a student registers after the class start date, all program/course fees are due and payable at the time of registration.

This decal must be clearly displayed in the vehicle at all times. No replacement decals will be issued for lost or stolen decals. Parking rates are available from Registrar's Office.

A limited amount of parking may be available on city streets near the college. However, students who park on private property near the college do so at their own risk.

 

Refunds

If students choose to drop a course, student accounts will be credited as shown in policy A20 – Registration, Adding and Dropping Courses. See www.assiniboine.net/policies for more information.

Full credit of tuition, laboratory, materials, student services and Students’ Association fees will be made if the student drops the course before course start date, or if the college cancels the course.

Requests to change from one section of a course to another will be treated the same as dropping one course and adding another.  The above-noted tuition, laboratory, materials, student services and Students’ Association fee credits will apply.

 

Outstanding Debts

Refunds may be reduced by outstanding debts, such as late fees, library fines, parking fees, etc. Transcripts, certificates and diplomas of graduating students who have outstanding accounts with the college will be withheld pending settlement of these accounts.

Documents will also be withheld from students if their sponsoring agency owes for outstanding fees.
