Withdrawals and Refunds
Students wishing to withdraw from a course must visit/contact an Academic Advisor to complete the appropriate Change of Status/Withdrawal Form or an Add/Drop Form as soon as possible as the amount of refund diminishes on a weekly basis from the start of classes.
Regardless of attendance, refunds are based on a declining fee balance per the refund schedule below, less the applicable cancellation and non-refundable fees. The following withdrawal deadlines apply for refund purposes.

A student may still owe tuition if not all of their tuition was paid in full and the tuition refund issued is not equal to or greater than the amount of tuition outstanding. Students who add or drop courses but remain enrolled in 4.0 credits are still charged full time tuition. Scholarships (entrance/continuing), bursaries or sponsorships may be retracted for early withdrawals. This could result in a student owing tuition after withdrawal.
Changes to your enrollment may affect your OSAP entitlement, your academic status with regards to OSAP, and your eligibility for future OSAP funding. In addition, any refunds may be returned to the National Student Loan Service Centre if loans were received within the same academic year. Prior to any course changes, contact Jane Parker in person at room W40, by phone 519.438.7224 ext. 215, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your particular situation.
After February 1st, there will be no refund of student activity fees.
After April 1st, there will be no refund of tuition, regardless of circumstance, including backdated withdrawals for academic purposes only.
Residence and meal plan refunds will be prorated based on the official move out date. The refundable amount is calculated as 50% of the prorated rate. Regardless of circumstance no refunds will be issued after November 30th (for students who move in in September), and after February 29 (for students who move in in January). If you wish to withdraw from residence, kindly notify the residence manager and ensure that your residence room and mailbox keys are returned as these would affect your move out date.
Where a refund is due to a student for overpayment of a student’s account via International Wire Transfer (Western Union Global Pay System or Direct Wire), the funds must be returned to the original sender’s bank account. Huron University College is not liable for any variance due to foreign exchange rate fluctuations or administrative fees.
