Withdrawal Information

  Withdrawals — fall and winter term courses

Absence from classes does not constitute withdrawal.

Full-time and part-time students who wish to withdraw from individual courses can do so using the ‘Register and Drop Classes’ feature in Connect@MTA.

Students who wish to withdraw from all courses in a single term or all courses in multiple terms must complete the ‘University and/or Residence Withdrawal Request’ in Connect@MTA. The date of withdrawal for the purpose of fee administration will be the date the withdrawal form is submitted. Students will receive email confirmation when the withdrawal form has been received.

 

  Withdrawals — spring term courses 

Refunds are calculated from the withdrawal date of a course dropped through Connect@MTA. 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@MTA, 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.

 

 

Withdrawal - correspondence courses

Refunds are calculated from the date that written, faxed or e-mailed notification of withdrawal is received by the Registrar's Office.

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. These students should contact the Registrar's Office regarding their eligibility for a credit.

All correspondence course refunds are calculated from the first day of the term and the date that the written request for withdrawal is received by the Registrar's Office. Fee credits will be calculated as the tuition fee paid for the course minus 15% times the number of weeks including the week of withdrawal, since the beginning of the term. There is no credit (refund) given after 6 weeks of registration.

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

 

 

 Withdrawals - Residence and meal plan

Students wishing to withdraw from residence and/or the meal plan must complete the ‘University and/or Residence Withdrawal Request’ in Connect@MTA. Students will receive email confirmation when the withdrawal form has been received. Withdrawal is not effective until the Residence Life Manager has approved the withdrawal request. 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.

The student's account will be adjusted to reflect residence and/or meal plan charges.

Students who decide during the winter holiday break not to return to the University in January must complete the ‘University and/or Residence Withdrawal Request’ in Connect@MTA by December 31 to be treated for fee purposes as a December withdrawal. This may be done even if University offices are closed. Any student who wishes to consult with a University staff member before making this decision should contact the Student Life Office by email at <studentlife@mta.ca> or by phone at (506) 364-2255 leaving a voice mail message if University offices are closed.

Students entering residence and purchasing meal plans in the middle of a term who subsequently withdraw should contact the Registrar's Office regarding their charges for the term. Any inquiries should be directed to the Registrar's Office by email to <regoffice@mta.ca> or by phone call to (506)364-2269.
