Continuing Education Transfers

To maintain program integrity and to ensure we have the right resources matched to student needs, the Department of Continuing Education has a strict policy on refunds for in-person and online courses.

Transfers from Continuing Education Courses

Transfers between courses or sections of the same course can only be requested once per student and can only be requested before the start of the course.  A completed and signed Transfer Request Form must be submitted to Student Enrolment for all transfers. Once a transfer is processed, a student may not subsequently withdrawal from the new course or section and be issued a refund. Please see the table below for more details.

Postponement or Cancellation of Continuing Education Courses

The Michener Institute reserves the right to postpone or cancel courses. We will make every effort to notify participants by telephone and email, so please include both your home and business numbers as well as your email upon registration. Should we have to cancel a course, you will receive a refund of your tuition fees if eligible; any other expenses incurred are your responsibility.

Failures and Re-takes:

No refund will be given if a candidate is unsuccessful in the course. An unsuccessful candidate must register and pay full registration fee in order to re-take the course.
