Withdrawal Information

Withdrawals — fall and winter term courses
There will be no fee charged for courses dropped within the first week of classes. For withdrawals after the first week of classes, fees will be calculated as 15 per cent of the tuition for the term times the number of weeks or part weeks since the first day of classes. 

Full-time students who wish to withdraw from the University must begin the process with the director of student life, whose office is located in the student life office, Wallace McCain Student Centre. Withdrawal is not effective until the director of student life has approved the withdrawal request. The date of withdrawal for the purpose of fee administration will be the date this approval is given.

Full-time and part-time students who wish to withdraw from one or more courses will be able to withdraw before the withdrawal deadline from all but the last course on-line using Connect@MTA. The date of withdrawal for the purpose of fee administration will be the date the withdrawal is effective on Connect@MTA.

Withdrawals — correspondence courses
Refunds are calculated from the date that written, faxed, or e-mailed notification of withdrawal is received by the registrar's office.

Fee credits will be calculated as the tuition fee paid for the course minus 15 per cent times the number of weeks including the week of withdrawal, since the beginning of the term. No refunds are given after six weeks of registration.

Full-time students who wish to withdraw from a correspondence course that is part of their full-time course load and for which they have not paid an additional fee over full-time tuition, will only be eligible for a refund if their status changes to part-time.

Withdrawals — spring term courses

Refunds are calculated from the withdrawal date of a course dropped through CONNECT .  Within 24 hours of making a change students should confirm their registration on MY CLASS SCHEDULE. If it does not reflect the addition, change, or deletion, or if students have problems viewing their schedule through CONNECT, they should contact the Registrar's Office.

There will be no fee charged for 3 credit courses having 2 classes per week dropped up to and including the last day for change in registration.* Fee credits will be calculated as the tuition fee paid for the course minus 15% times the number of classes including the week of withdrawal, since the course began. There is no credit (refund) given after 6 classes.

Refunds will not be given to students who do not adhere to these deadlines.

*Any course having more than 2 classes per week may be charged a withdrawal fee if dropped before the last day for change in registration. These courses may also be calculated differently for withdrawals. Please see the Registrar's Office.

This may be done even if University offices are closed by contacting the registrar's office by e-mail at regoffice@mta.ca, by fax at (506) 364-2272, or by leaving a voice mail message with the director of student life at (506) 364-2255.

The date of withdrawal for the purpose of fee administration will be the date this approval is given, or the date students have checked out of residence and keys have been returned, whichever is later.
