Classes will be held in the Fountain Commons. Students currently enrolled in a degree program are also welcome to participate.

Attendance Policy

  • You must attend more than 80% of classes in order to pass the term. 

Students who miss four or more EAP terms must take the CAEL placement test, or provide an IELTS or TOEFL score to determine the correct level for them to study in. According to Acadia’s admission policies, IELTS or TOEFL scores must be no more than 12 months old at the time of registration to be accepted.

Refund Policy

You qualify for a full refund of your pre-paid tuition only if you have been denied authorization to study in Canada and provide documentation from the proper Canadian authority stating that your application to study in Canada was denied.

The EAP application fee ($125) is non-refundable.

To withdraw from the EAP program, you will need to submit an official Withdrawal Request. Your Acadia University username and password are required. If you are eligible for a refund it will be processed with 10 days. Refunds are processed by the method you paid or by credit on your student account.
