Withdrawals and Refunds


A student may withdraw in good standing from a course within the period established each term as published in the academic calendar. While it is a courtesy to inform the instructor of withdrawal from a course, this does not constitute official withdrawal from either a course or the University. Students are academically and financially responsible for all courses for which they register unless they officially withdraw by the specified deadline date for each term. Grades will be recorded on students' transcripts for all courses in which they have registered and from which they have not officially withdrawn.

Withdrawal notification, in writing, must be received by the Faculty of Graduate Studies by the dates noted below.  Discontinuing attendance at classes, notification to the instructor or stopping payment on a cheque does not constitute official withdrawal.
