VIII. Fees

Refund of Fees

Upon the authorization of the dean of Graduate Studies a graduate student who withdraws from the university may be eligible for a refund of part of the fees, to be effective as of the date upon which the withdrawal notice is received in Graduate Program Services. Outstanding Library fines and charges are deducted from the calculated refund.

If the withdrawal results in a credit balance in your fees account, i.e. payments are greater than charges, a refund cheque is produced. Allow approximately four weeks before refunds are available from Student Financial Services. The University has been directed by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities to return refunds to the National Student Loan Centre in instances where assistance was received through a Government Student Loan.

Refunds of tuition fees will be calculated according to the effective date and the following schedule.

Class days Rate
1 - 5 inclusive 100%
6 - 10 inclusive 75%
11 - 15 inclusive 65%

Refunds of University Non-Academic fees and Student Organization fees (except Bus Pass, medical insurance premium and dental insurance premium) will be made in full up to and including the 15th class day of a semester. No refund of University Non-Academic fees and Student Organization fees will be made after the 15th class day. Room charges will be refunded on a pro rata basis for the period in residence, but cancellation of the residence contract will also result in forfeiture of all or part of the residence deposit.
