Returning students: A full refund, less a $100 administration fee, will be granted if a study permit application is not approved by Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

The refund request must be made in writing and it must include a copy of the original rejection letter from CIC.

Two-thirds of the tuition fee will be refunded if the student withdraws prior to the first day of the semester.
