This date is reflective of most full-time regular programs. Exceptions may apply for those programs of shorter duration. Policy allows for the following:

  1. Last Day to Withdraw without Academic Penalty:  If the withdrawal occurs before 20% of the course duration, no grade for this course is included on the transcript of marks.
  2. Last Day to Withdraw with Pro-Rated Refund: No refunds granted after the start of the 4th week beyond the payment due date.
  3. Last Day to Withdraw with WI on Transcript: This notation indicates that a student withdrew from a course after 20%, but before reaching 50% of its duration.

Specific questions may be directed to the Registrar's office.

** For classes that start on dates other than the official term start date: Deadline for all credit transfer or RPL requests will be 3 weeks after the start of class.

*** Exceptions may apply for Apprenticeship and Non-Regular program deliveries. Please verify with your instructor.
