V. Tuition and Fees



A student who makes a request for Withdrawal from the University may apply to the Registration and Financial Services Coordinator for a refund of tuition fees provided the hiatus has been authorized (see also Section VII –Undergraduate Degree Regulations, Withdrawal).

If the withdrawal or credit drop results in a credit balance in your account (i.e. payments are greater than charges) a refund cheque is produced. Allow four to six weeks before refunds are available from Student Financial Services. The University has been directed by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development to return refunds to the National Student Loan Centre in instances where assistance was received through a Government Student Loan.

Winter and Summer Semesters - Refunds of tuition fees will be calculated according to the effective date and the following schedule:

Refunds of Tuition Fees
Class Days Refund Rate
1 - 5 inclusive 100%
6 - 10 inclusive 75%
11 - 15 inclusive 65%
16 - 20 inclusive 50%
21 - 25 inclusive 35%
26 - 30 inclusive 20%
31 and beyond nil

Fall Semester - The compulsory non-refundable Registration Deposit of $200 is forfeited as the first charge against a withdrawal/cancellation or no show for the semester. The above schedule will only come into effect once the first $200 penalty has been used up.
