Course Drop/Add Activity

Course Drop/Add Activity

For students assessed on a per course basis, the net effect of dropping and adding courses may change the overall fee assessment for the term. In general, adding a course will increase the fee assessment by the unit course fee to a maximum tuition charge equal to the basic term fee. Dropping a course may generate a refund, calculated on the same basis as a withdrawal at either 100%, 50%, or zero, depending on when the course is dropped. 

Refunds for credit balances created by dropping courses are mailed early in the third month of term to the student's mailing address indicated on Quest, provided it is an address in Canada or the United States. Students with mailing addresses outside of Canada or the United States will need to contact Student Financial Services to arrange for the refund.

Students who change their status from full-time to part-time within the first three weeks of the start of lectures each term become eligible for part-time incidental fees.
