Withdrawal in Extenuating Circumstances

* Students who miss the withdrawal deadline may be eligible for a withdrawal if they can satisfy the Registrar that they have suffered illness or other extenuating circumstances beyond their control. The withdrawal request must be accompanied by appropriate documentation, as determined by Enrolment Services.

* Generally, the circumstances that qualify for a withdrawal in extenuating circumstances will affect all courses in which a student is enrolled. For this reason, most requests are for a complete withdrawal from all courses. However, requests for selective withdrawal may be considered if the student can demonstrate the reasons why one course was affected but another was not.

* Requests for withdrawal in extenuating circumstances must be received before the last day of classes for the request to be considered. However, if the documented circumstances demonstrate that a timely request was not possible, a retroactive withdrawal may be considered. Note: In most situations, students who have written the final exam or completed all course requirements are not eligible for a withdrawal in extenuating circumstances.

* A refund of a portion of the tuition fee may be granted for eligible withdrawals depending on enrolment status (e.g. Domestic or International).

* The decision of the Registrar is subject to appeal (see Policy ED 4-0).
