4) The refund to which a student is entitled is calculated on the total tuition fees due under the contract less the $150 non-refundable registration/application fee. Where total tuition fees have not yet been collected, the institution is not responsible for refunding more than has been collected to date and a student may be required to make up for monies due under the contract.

5) If the institution has received fees in excess of the amount it is entitled to under the student contract, the excess amount must be refunded.

6) Refund policy for students:

      (a) Refunds before the program of study begins:

        1.

        2. If written notice of withdrawal is received by the institution 30 days or more before the commencement of the period of instruction specified in the contract and more than 7 days after the contract was made, the institution may retain 10% of the total tuition and the non-refundable $150 registration/application fee due under the contract to a maximum of $1000.
        3. If written notice of withdrawal is received by the institution less than 30 days before the commencement of the period of instruction specified in the contract, and more than 7 days after the contract was made, the institution may retain 20% of the total tuition and the non-refundable $150 registration/application fee due under the contract to a maximum of $1300.

(b) Refunds after the program of study starts:

      1. If written notice of withdrawal is received by the institution or a student is dismissed before 11% of the period of instruction specified in the contract has elapsed, the institution may retain 30% of the total tuition and the non-refundable $150 registration/application fee due under the contract. Meals and accommodation which have not yet been received by the student will be refunded 100%.
      2. If written notice of withdrawal is received by the institution, or a student is dismissed after 11% and before 30% of the period of instruction specified in the contract has elapsed, the institution may retain 50% of the total tuition and the non-refundable $150 registration/application fee due under the contract. Meals and accommodation which have not yet been received by the student will be refunded 100%.
