Withdrawing from Courses

Enrolment Changes (Adding and Dropping Courses)

The last day for making changes to your enrolment in each term is posted yearly under the Registrar’s Office Sessional Dates. It is important to familiarize yourself with these dates at the start of each term.

Students have until this deadline to add and drop courses in each term. Courses dropped by the last day to make enrolment changes are removed fully from your record and a refund for the tuition is given.

If you believe you have an outstanding refund that should have been received, please contact the Student Accounts & Cashiers Office.

Students are fully responsible for any outcomes that are a result of enrolment changes (e.g. OSAP, Residence).

Withdrawing from Courses Without Failure by Default

Once the last day to make enrolment changes has passed, students can still withdraw from courses without failure by default by the published deadline. This deadline can be found in the Sessional Dates. Withdrawn courses will remain on your transcript with a notation of ‘W’ indicating you withdrew from the course. Withdrawn courses are not factored into your average.

Students do not receive a full refund for withdrawn courses. Please check the cancellation fee schedule on the Student Accounts & Cashiers’ website for more information. If you have any questions about an outstanding refund, please contact their office.

After the last day to withdraw from courses without failure by default, you must remain enrolled in your courses.

Students are fully responsible for any outcomes that are a result of enrolment changes (e.g. OSAP, Residence)

If you have any concerns about withdrawing from courses, please contact the Academic Advising Office.
