Refunds and Transfers for Continuing Education/Extension Courses
Students who discontinue prior to the withdrawal deadline for their continuing education/extension credit or non-credit courses are entitled to a full refund or transfer of their tuition fee.
The withdrawal deadline for non-credit courses of 8 weeks or less and for all non-credit courses is 7 calendar days prior to course start date. There is no refund or transfer on or after the withdrawal deadline.
The withdrawal deadline for credit courses longer than 8 weeks is 14 calendar days prior to course start date. If notification of withdrawal is received between 14 calendar days prior and either 14 calendar days after course start date or the course end date - whichever is earlier - students are entitled to a full refund of their tuition fee less the $100 administrative fee listed in the Fee Schedule. Alternatively, students can opt to transfer the full amount to another course. There is no refund or transfer for withdrawals after 14 calendar days from the course start date.
Audit fees are non-refundable after the program/course start date.
Transfers are permitted only within the same academic year, as follows:
- from one credit offering to another credit offering, belonging to the same school
- between non-credit courses of the same type (e.g. non-credit computer or cooking courses)
- between courses defined as equivalent
- between campuses or televised sites
- between delivery types (e.g. online to classroom)
Transfer requests made that fall outside these guidelines are subject to dean's approval and are granted in exceptional circumstances only.
