What is the deadline to withdraw from a course?

Full tuition may be refunded if the School receives a written notice of withdrawal postmarked before the applicable deadline. Notice of withdrawal may also be requested by submitting a request.

The following deadlines are for guidance purposes only and may not apply to all programs or courses.  If there is a separate deadline that applies to a specific program or course, this deadline will be noted on your confirmation of enrolment email that is sent to you when you register.  This separate deadline will supersede any deadlines listed below.


100% of the tuition fee will be refunded if the withdrawal takes place within the following deadlines. No refund will be given after the applicable deadlines.


If you are unclear of the deadline that applies for your enrolled course(s), please contact Enrolment and Learner Services by submitting a request or call 416-978-2400.
