Refund Policies

 

Refunds are only permitted in certain circumstances as described below.  Refunds will only be made to the person and/or account from which the payment was initially made.

Application Fee Refunds

  • All application fees are non-refundable.

Tuition Fee Refunds

  • Students must provide the International Services Office, Lethbridge School District with written notice of withdrawal.
  • A full refund will be issued if the program has not yet begun and a Study Permit/Visa was denied (a copy of the documentation for denial of the Study Permit/Visa must be forwarded to the International Services Office).
  • 5% of fees for one semester will be retained by Lethbridge School District if the student withdraws an application after a study permit/Visa has been issued.
  • There will be no refund after studies have started, and 25% of the fees for the next semester of study for which a letter of acceptance was issued will be withheld.
  • If a student engages in any illegal activity, or repeatedly violates District or Homestay Rules and Regulations after being warned, and if a consequence of this behaviour is that the student is mandated to return home, then no refund of tuition fees will be made. (In such a situation, or at any other time, the cost associated with the student returning home is not the responsibility of Lethbridge School District.)

Medical Insurance Fee Refunds

  • Students must provide the International Services Office, Lethbridge School District with written notice of withdrawal.
  • A full refund will be issued if the program has not yet begun and a Study Permit/Visa was denied (a copy of the documentation for denial of the Study Permit/Visa must be forwarded to the International Services Office).
  • Once a student has arrived in Canada, there will be no refund for any of the calendar months for which the student was present and covered by the policy. Students may be refunded the portion of premiums that was unused, less 25% of that amount as an administration fee.
  • If a student engages in any illegal activity, or repeatedly violates District or Homestay Rules and Regulations after being warned, and if a consequence of this behaviour is that the student is mandated to return home, then no refund of medical insurance fees will be made. (In such a situation, or at any other time, the cost associated with the student returning home is not the responsibility of Lethbridge School District.)
  • No refund will be issued for insurance fees if the student has made any claims against the insurance policy for recovery of medical expenses.
