How to Withdraw

Visit the Program/Course Withdrawals web page for important information to consider before withdrawing from your program or a course. Read below for more details on refunds related to when you withdraw.

Non-Refundable Tuition Deposit

A non-refundable deposit is required once per academic year or when changing programs. For domestic students starting or returning to a program of study as of Fall 2020, the non-refundable tuition deposit is $250. The tuition deposit for new or returning students prior to Fall 2020 remains $500. The tuition deposit is applied to the balance due for the term when selecting your timetable to register. It is not an additional fee. Failure to make the tuition deposit by the due date may result in the loss of the seat in the program. A $150 deposit late fee will apply after the due date on your fee statement.

For new students, payments made after the due date do not guarantee a seat in the program as offers may be extended to other waitlisted applicants. Please contact an Admissions Advisor when paying past the tuition deposit due date to confirm space remains in the program.

Refunds Prior to Timetable Selection

If you choose to withdraw from college prior to selecting your timetable, please submit a formal withdraw request through your MyMohawk account in order to be considered for a refund of tuition and ancillary fees paid less the applicable tuition deposit (if already paid). Log into your MyMohawk account, navigate to the Registration tab and select Request to withdraw in the Postsecondary students. Fill in the required details and information to submit your request. Refunds will be issued back to the original payment method. If you are an OSAP student, your tuition and fees refund may be returned to the National Student Loans Centre (NSLC), as per the OSAP terms and agreements. Students withdrawing as of the 2020/21 academic year (beginning with Fall 2020) are subject to a $250 holdback fee. Review the Terms and Definitions for more information regarding holdback fees. Check the Academic and Important Dates web page for timelines and and program exception calendars.

Refunds Following Timetable Selection and up to the Tenth Day of Classes

Students who want to withdraw from the College must formally withdraw within the first ten days of the program semester start to be eligible for a tuition refund less the applicable holdback fee. Log into your MyMohawk account, navigate to the Registration tab and select Request to withdraw in the Postsecondary students. Fill in the required details and information to submit your request. Refunds will be issued back to the original payment method. If you are an OSAP student, your tuition and fees refund may be returned to the National Student Loans Centre (NSLC), as per the OSAP terms and agreements. Students withdrawing as of the 2020/21 academic year (beginning with Fall 2020) are subject to a $250 holdback fee. Review the Terms and Definitions for more information regarding holdback fees. Check the Academic and Important Dates web page for timelines and and program exception calendars.

The College is not responsible for withdrawal requests that do not reach the College. Students who withdraw after the 10th day of class are responsible for full fees for the semester. Lack of attendance or OSAP denial does not constitute a formal withdrawal. 

Refunds After the First Ten Days of Classes

If you withdraw from college after the first ten days of the program semester start, the tuition and ancillary fees (including any deposit) for the current semester are non-refundable. All prepaid semesters beyond the current semester are refundable. Check the Academic and Important Dates web page for timelines and and program exception calendars.
