International Student Refund Policy
Once a Letter of Acceptance (LOA) is issued, any request to change your Study Plan will result in the forfeiture of your $1,500 CAD international tuition deposit. This includes changing your term start date or program.
International students who wish to withdraw from the college or change their status must inform the Centre for International Education and Global Partnerships (CIEGP). Refunds will be granted on the following basis:
Withdrawals Before the Start of the Program
- Applicants will forfeit the application fee and the tuition deposit.
Withdrawal Within the First 7% of the Term
- Refund of 100% fees less non-refundable deposit where applicable.
Withdrawal Between 7% and 25% of the Term
- Refund of 50% fees.
Withdrawal After 25% of the Term
- No refund.
Health & Dental Fees
- Fully refundable up to 30 calendar days from the start of the program.
Refund Processing Fee
- A $100 administration fee will be applied to all refund requests.
Students who choose to withdraw from their program of studies, including those who choose not to return for an upcoming term, are responsible for the submission of a completed Withdrawal Form for Students in Full-Time Programs to one of our Student Service Centres: D101, Notre Dame Campus, or P104, Roblin Centre, Exchange District Campus.
Refunds will be processed in the same manner as the original payment method; however, cash and debit payments refunds will be made by cheque, directly deposited to your Canadian bank account or wire transfer outside of Canada.
Study Permit Refusals
Applicants who are denied a study permit will forfeit the application fee. A copy of the visa rejection letter from Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is required to process the deposit and tuition refunds. Refund requests are required within 30 days of receipt of the Visa Rejection Letter.
This condition does not apply to students who choose to start their programs of study without full approval on their Study Permit application. In that situation, the Refund Forfeiture Schedule (listed below) will still be effective should they receive a Rejection Letter after the program start.
Change of Status
Students changing their status to permanent residents may be eligible to have their tuition adjusted for any future terms of study remaining in their program. Students are required to submit their immigration document or permanent resident card to initiate this adjustment and change of status.
Students who have been approved as provincial nominees are required to pay international student fees until receiving official permanent resident status from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
