Withdrawal and Deferral Form for International Students
What is withdrawing?
Withdrawing your application is a final admission decision that closes your application status with Saskatchewan Polytechnic. No further letters of offer will be provided on the application. You may reapply should you wish to attend the program in the future.
If you have been refused a study permit and must withdraw, you might be eligible to receive your deposit back, less an administration fee. Restrictions apply as permit refusals must be supplied before set dates. A withdrawal form and the study permit refusal must be dated within ten business days of each other. You must withdraw no later than the fifth day of the start of the program. Withdrawal for other reasons result in other administrative fees being applied. See the Tuition and Fee Procedure for more information.
If you wish to withdraw please fill out the withdrawal form found in mySaskPolytech on the applicant tab. A confirmation message is provided on submission and follow up upon completing the form is not necessary.
What is deferring?
Deferring is delaying your attendance to a future intake. Requesting a deferral will provide you additional time to prepare for your studies. Saskatchewan Polytechnic offers deferrals to a future program start date if you have paid your deposit and are unable to attend. Non-attendance does not give you deferral status and the applicable fee will be applied. Note that requests to change programs with a deferral is not permitted and requires a new application. The standard application process applies.
Currently deferral must be submitted no later than the fifth day of the program. Deferrals are available at pre-determined times as posted. The deposit you have already paid will be moved and applied against tuition and fees for the next start date. There is no guarantee a seat will be available in the next term when your program is offered as others may already be admitted to the intake. An updated letter of acceptance will be provided (typically one to two weeks to process). Your deposit will be moved to a future intake and applied against tuition and fees. You are not reissued a receipt. Please use your Flywire receipt or the receipt previously provided.
If you have a visa refusal and are reapplying immediately, we can automatically create a new application for the same program through the deferral process. We will charge the application fee against your deposit so that no further payment is required. See the section Deferring to a future start date and Study permit refusals for more information.
If you choose to defer your program start date, do not complete a withdrawal form. Completing both a deferral and a withdrawal form will cause delays. Saskatchewan Polytechnic will process the program withdrawal which may lead to losing both your application status and your non-refundable deposit.
If you wish to defer please fill out the form linked below. A confirmation message is provided on submission and follow up upon completing the form is not necessary.
