Refund of Fees

Upon the authorization of the Assistant Vice-President (Graduate Studies) a graduate student who withdraws from the university may be eligible for a refund of part of the fees, to be effective as of the date upon which the withdrawal notice is received in the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies. Outstanding Library fines and charges are deducted from the calculated refund.

If the withdrawal results in a credit balance in your fees account, i.e. payments are greater than charges, a refund is produced. Allow approximately four weeks before refunds are issued from Student Financial Services. The University has been directed by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development to return refunds to the National Student Loans Service Centre in instances where assistance was received through a Government Student Loan.

Refunds of tuition fees will be calculated according to the effective date and schedule found at: https://www.uoguelph.ca/registrar/studentfinance/fees/refunds.

Refunds of University Non-Academic fees and Student Organization fees (including Bus Pass but excluding medical insurance premium and dental insurance premium) will be made in full up to and including the 10th class day following the semester payment deadline. No refund of University Non-Academic fees and Student Organization fees will be made after the 10th class day following the semester payment deadline. Room charges will be refunded on a pro rata basis for the period in residence, but cancellation of the residence contract will also result in forfeiture of all or part of the residence deposit. Refer to the Residence Contract Terms and Conditions for further information.
