Students are eligible for refunds for the following:
- Overpayment of Tuition Fees
- Credit on Account
- Tuition Deposits (note Tuition deposits are only refundable for visa denials. A non refundable fee of $300 will be withheld)
To apply for refund, students must submit an application for refund.
Payments other than Credit Card
For payments through cash, cheque, money order and wire transfer:
Refunds will normally be issued by cheque directly to the student. Exceptions may be made with the written authorization of the student, or in the case of where a business/employer has a direct billing arrangement with the university. A student may request a refund to be issued to a third party providing there is evidence that the original payment was made by that party. (eg a cheque in another person’s name, a wire transfer from another party, or if payment by the third party was witnessed.) We will as a practice make a note of a third party payment on our documentation.
Students will indicate any special instructions on the Vancouver refund form.
Payment by Credit Card
Any refunds for payments made by credit card will be refunded directly back to the credit card from which the payment was made.
Refunds by cheque will be sent via regular mail unless otherwise specified by the student. Students will be responsible for any special delivery arrangements (e.g. courier and any special delivery charges will be deducted from the refunded amount). The request for special arrangements must be done at the time the refund request is made. Once a cheque is issued, the amount cannot be adjusted.
It will normally take between 3 and 5 weeks from the time the completed refund form is received by the Enrollment Services Office in Vancouver to process the refund. If the form is not complete, the process will take longer.
