Tuition Refunds

The compulsory non-refundable Registration Deposit of $200 is forfeited as the first charge against a withdrawal/cancellation or no show for the semester including the first five class days. The schedule below will only come into effect once the first $200 penalty has been used up.

The Resource Fee ($75 per 0.5 credit) for distance education courses is only refundable on withdrawals and drops within class days 1-5.

Dropping Courses or Withdrawing from a Semester

Students are financially responsible for all fees incurred by course registration. A student may drop a course or withdraw from all courses with no academic penalty within the period established each term as published in the Academic Calendar Schedule of Dates. However, withdrawals may have financial penalties; the portion of tuition and fees that is refunded will depend on the date of withdrawal and the refund schedule.

Students who drop one or more courses before the specified deadline date, and hold part-time registration status for the remainder of the semester, may receive a partial refund. Students who maintain full-time status (i.e. 2.00 credits and greater) after dropping a course do not qualify for a refund. For students with permanent disabilities, please refer to the tuition policy for students with permanent disabilities for details about course load, billing, and refunds.

Discontinuing attendance at classes, or notification to the instructor, does not constitute official withdrawal from a course or the University.

Please refer to the Statement of Financial Responsibility.

Basis for a Refund

Dropping of courses or withdrawal from a semester may create a credit on the student’s account as per the following examples:

  1. Official withdrawal from all classes as per the approved refund schedule.
  2. Classification changes from full time (00 credits and greater) to part time (less than 2.00 credits) as per the approved refund schedule. This does not apply to students with permanent disabilities; please see the tuition policy for students with permanent disabilities.
  3. Part-time course load reduction as per the approved refund schedule (1.5 credits to 1.0 credit or 1.5 credits to 0.5 credit).

Requesting a Refund

If a credit is produced, students must email finaid@guelphhumber.ca from their University of Guelph-Humber email account to request their refund. The refund will be issued through Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) – Direct Deposit. Please complete the Direct Deposit Authorization Form if we do not already have your information on file. The information is stored in the secured University of Guelph’s student system and is restricted to a limited number of employees.

Students who request refunds are subject to the following conditions and restrictions:

  • Payments received by the University of Guelph-Humber directly from a foreign country will only be refunded after a student is registered in two consecutive terms at the University of Guelph-Humber with a limit of $2,000. Only one refund will be paid out per semester. All refund requests that exceed $2,000 will be wired back to the originating bank account, subject to a wire charge of $30, or moved to a future registered semester.
  • Payments received by the University of Guelph-Humber directly from a Canadian bank account will be refunded without these restrictions, but are still subject to review.
  • OSAP students please refer to OSAP eligibility.

If your refund request is declined, you will receive an email to your University of Guelph-Humber email account containing an explanation of why your refund could not be processed.
