Refunds are issued to:

  • the National Student Loan Service Center for students who have received OSAP funding for that academic year;
  • the student, by cheque, if payments were received by cash, cheque or debit card;
  • directly to the credit card account originally used when tuition fee payment was paid;


  • a third party in a case of third party payment

Note: Please refer to Continuing Education Withdrawals, Transfers, Refunds and Appeals for the refund policy on courses offered by the Centre for Continuing Professional Education (CCPE) Division of The Michener Institute.

Please refer to the Tuition Fee Refund Policy for a complete refund schedule and the Withdrawal Policy for information on potential academic implications.
