REFUND OF FEES FOR FULL-TIME POST-SECONDARY STUDENTS
Refunds of fees are calculated based on the refund schedule and the effective date named on the Withdrawal Form. To obtain refunds, students must initiate the withdrawal procedure by completing the Withdrawal Form which is available from the program Chair’s Office. The refund schedule was established keeping in mind costs committed on the student's behalf before classes began, and throughout the semester.
The College has a late payment fee of $150. This fee is non-refundable.
Fee Schedules for other programs (non post-secondary) are available from the Registrar's Office.
If full-time students officially withdraw on or before the last day to withdraw from a course or program deadline specified in the Key Dates Calendar (usually day 10 of the semester), all fees paid will be refunded, less the $100 non-refundable administration fee (please note this administration fee differs for international students - see below for details).
The program start dates are listed in the Key Dates Calendar, which is provided to all students.
If the student does not withdraw from the program, the $100 will be applied to his/her tuition fees.
Students officially withdrawing after the last day to withdraw from a course or program deadline listed in the Key Dates Calendar will not be eligible for a refund of fees for that semester. However, all fees paid in advance for future semester(s) will be refunded.
REFUND OF FEES FOR PART-TIME POST-SECONDARY STUDENTS - DAY CLASSES
A $15 registration fee is included in the total fees payable and is non-refundable. Also, any course specific supply fee is not refundable. Students enrolled in Continuing Education classes must officially withdraw from courses by letting the Registrar's Office know prior to the second class to be eligible for a refund. The fee refunded will not include the registration fee of $15. If the course has only one class, the withdrawal request must be made prior to the beginning of that scheduled class.
REFUND OF FEES FOR INTERNATIONAL FULL-TIME POST-SECONDARY STUDENTS (all fees noted are in Canadian dollars)
If international students officially withdraw on or before the last day to withdraw as specified in the Key Dates Calendar (usually day 10 of the semester), all fees paid will be refunded, less the $2,500 non-refundable administration fee. If a student has received a visa refusal, they will receive a refund less a $400 non-refundable withdrawal fee. Bank charges may apply and will be deducted from the refund in addition to fees listed above. All funds will be returned to the country of origin.
Please review the refund form for details. Your Sault College fee receipt will indicate the method of payment you used.
All international refund packages for AAL1 (semester 1), must be submitted via the International Application Services (IAS) portal. All international refund packages for AAL2 (semester 2) or higher, or for an overpayment, must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tuition Short Refund Policy
All full-time students will receive a full refund of fees, less a non-refundable administration, late, and deferral fees, if they officially withdraw prior to completion of 10% of the program/course. The non-refundable Administration Fee is 10 % of the fee for tuition short programs.
All full-time students will receive a 50% refund of fees if they officially withdraw prior to completion of 50% of the program/course. There will be no refunds after 50% of the program/course has been completed.
Continuing Education Refund Policy
A per course registration fee of $15 is included in the total fees payable and is not refundable. Also, any course specific supply fee is not refundable.
