It is the student’s responsibility to become familiar with the Academic Regulations and review information on Fees

If you are considering withdrawing from your program, we strongly advise you to consult with the International Centre, as withdrawing may affect your status in Canada.

Refund requests must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar or International Centre on or before the tenth (10th) official day of the term. There are no refunds after the tenth official day of the start of the term, and students are liable for payment of outstanding fees. There are no exceptions to the refund policy for students who register late. Full-time tuition fees are a package cost, and dropping a course(s) does not qualify you for a refund if you remain in full-time status (this includes students approved for Transfer credits). Unused credits are not transferrable from one semester to another.

Please note that $500 for full-time programs (or $1,000 for International Students) of the Program Fees (i.e. Tuition Deposit) is automatically withheld once payment is made (for each level of the English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program, $500 is automatically withheld). Late Fees are also non-refundable. Refund of fees originally paid by credit card will be refunded to the same credit card. Refund of fees originally paid by wire transfer, web banking, and debit card will be issued by cheque. Refunds for students that received OSAP may be forwarded to OSAP through the National Student Loan Service Centre (NSLSC).


If you have not received a decision on your study permit application, or are unable to attend classes by the fifth (5th) day of class, you must notify the International Centre before the tenth (10th) official day of the semester in writing to be eligible for a refund. You will be charged a $1,000 CAD administration fee for academic programs or $500 CAD for English for Academic Purposes. If Canadian Immigration denies your visa/study permit, the administration fee will be waived. You must scan the visa/study permit denial letter, attach it to your email request for a full refund, and email it to

Please refer to Humber’s Academic Regulations for important dates and information. Any requests received beyond these dates will be denied. No exceptions to the refund policy will be made.

If you receive your visa denial too late to submit it with your refund request (by the tenth (10th) day of the semester) then you may submit a second refund request for the administration fee ($1,000 CAD for academic full time programs, $500 CAD for English for Academic Purposes). This request must be received no later than the first day of classes of the following semester.

Your tuition fees are transferable for up to two consecutive starts (8 months) for academic programs and (4 months) for EAP programs, provided you make the request prior to the 10th day of classes. An administration holdback will not be applied. After two deferrals, tuition will no longer be deferred. All refunds will be issued back through the original method of payment.
