Refund Information

It is the student’s responsibility to become familiar with the Academic Regulations, which outline course and program fee refunds.

Consult an Advisor Before Program or Course Withdrawal

For students who are considering a program/course withdrawal, we strongly advise that the student consult their program coordinator, in addition to consulting with a representative in the Office of the Registrar. OSAP recipients should check with a Financial Aid Representative, as withdrawing may affect their current or future OSAP status. If students withdraw after the refund date, they are responsible for any outstanding fees and for repayment of OSAP funds to the National Student Loans Service Centre (NSLSC), if applicable. International students consult with the International Centre, as withdrawing may affect their status in Canada. Visit for more information.

General Refund Information

Refund requests must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar on or before the tenth 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 program fees are a package cost and dropping a course(s) does not qualify for a refund if a student remains in full-time status (this includes students approved for transfer credits). Unused Student Contact Hours are not transferable from one semester to another.

Refund Method

Refunds will be processed using the same method as the original payment made. Refund of fees originally paid by web banking will be issued by email e-transfer. Refunds for students that received OSAP may be forwarded to OSAP through the National Student Loan Service Centre (NSLSC).

Continuing Education Refund Information

Refund information is displayed in the "How to Register" box for each course. Please check the “Verification of Registration” email that was sent by the Office of the Registrar for the exact drop and withdrawal dates for your course(s). Generally, $25 of the tuition fee and all applicable lab/material fees are non-refundable, unless Humber cancels the course. To request a refund, email or call the Contact Centre.

Full refunds will be granted only when Humber cancels a course. If your course is cancelled, you may transfer to another course or request a refund. Refunds are not automatically issued for cancelled courses as many students prefer to transfer. Some courses have special refund policies. Please contact Humber to tell us how you would like to proceed. If you do not request, a transfer a full refund of fees will be issued one month after the start of the cancelled course.

Payments made by Visa or MasterCard will be refunded to the credit card that was used.

Non-Refundable Fees

Please note that $250 (or $1,000 for international students) of program fees (e.g. tuition deposit) is automatically withheld once payment is made. Late fees are non-refundable.
