Course Cancellation Policy
All classes are subject to cancellation if there are insufficient registrations. If a registrant’s course is cancelled, he/she may either transfer to another course (space permitting) or receive a full refund. Credit card refunds will be credited to the registrant’s credit card account; cheque and cash payments will receive a refund with a mailed cheque. The Continuing Education Advisor will make every effort to inform the registrant of the cancellation prior to the start of the course; therefore, please provide both a business and home phone number and email address when registering each student.
To be eligible for a refund, the department must be notified no later than two weeks prior to the course start date. Refund requests received less than two weeks prior to a course start date will not be eligible for a refund. Please quote the course name, start and end dates, your full name, address, and phone number.
