Tuition and Fees


Refunds

General Rules (all students) International Students- Overseas International Students (not yet arrived in Canada) International Students- Local International and Returning Students (Study Permit Extensions)

Course Drop/Withdrawal

All tuition refunds require written notice of withdrawal (Request to Drop a Course form), which must be received by the College before the published deadlines, as follows:

Before the First Day of Term

  • 100% refund up to the last day of the Regular Registration period.
  • 75% refund during the Late Registration period, up to the semester start date (from the Monday, 2 calendar weeks before the semester start date until the business day before the semester start date).

After the First Day of Term

  • 50% prior to 4pm on the first Wednesday of the first week of the semester.
  • 30% after 4pm on the first Wednesday of the first week and prior to the end of the first week of the semester.
  • No refund is issued for courses withdrawn after 4:00pm at the end of week 1.

Medical/Compassionate Withdrawal

Students who withdraw from courses are not normally eligible for a tuition refund. In the event that the withdrawal from courses is due to exceptional medical or compassionate circumstances, students may submit an appeal of the refund policy. A Refund Appeal form must be submitted to the Student Financial Services Office, along with supporting documentation.

Please note:

  • Financial hardship does not qualify as a suitable rationale for an appeal of the refund policy.
  • Students who have been issued official letters are ineligible for a refund.
  • Submission of a Refund Appeal does not guarantee that a tuition fee refund will be granted. If the refund appeal is not approved, the decision is final.

Required to Discontinue

In the event that a student is required to discontinue studies due to expulsion, 50% of any remaining credit balance is refunded to the student or other individual (with written consent from the student).

Exception: The student is not eligible for a refund of any amount if the remaining credit balance is left over from a total amount deposited for an official Letter of Acceptance (LOA) or Confirmation of Enrolment issued to the student.

Unclaimed Funds

Students who discontinue studies are expected to claim refundable funds within 24 months of discontinuation. Funds that are unclaimed by the end of 24 months will revert to the College.

Alexander College acknowledges that the land on which we usually gather is the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work in this territory.
