Refund Policy

Students qualify for a refund of pre-paid tuition if they have been denied authorization to study in Canada and provide documentation from the proper Canadian authority stating that their application to study in Canada was denied.

If a student withdraws 10 days before the program begins or after the start of the program, the following refunds will be issued provided that Conditions A or B below are met:

0-10% of program completed
50% of unused tuition fees

11-20% of program completed
30% of unused tuition fees

20%+ of program completed

Condition A

Students who withdraw before the withdrawal deadline may receive a refund of their fees, provided that:

  • Students have admission to another Canadian Designated Learning Institution;
  • A student who does not have admission to another college/university at the time of withdrawal may defer their fees paid until they have received a letter of admission to another college/university (within four months of arrival in Canada).
  • When a copy of a Letter of Acceptance from another college or university is received and authenticated by Acadia, a refund of fees will be authorized.


Condition B

Students who withdraw before the deadline may receive a refund of their fees, provided that:

  • The student relinquishes their status as an international student in Canada and returns to their home country. In this case the student will be required to provide Acadia with proof of return home (e.g., a copy of a one‐way airline ticket with confirmed travel dates).
