Credit Program & Course Refunds
Refunds normally take 4 to 6 weeks to process. Refundable amounts will first be applied toward any outstanding balance on the account, before a refund is issued. Payments made by credit card will be refunded to the original credit card. Payments by any other method will be refunded by cheque to the student unless payment was identified and setup as a Third Party payment.
Credit students who withdraw from one or more courses are eligible for a refund if the withdrawal is completed before 12% of the course has passed (check ‘My Deadlines’ to find the refund deadline for individual courses) and any of the following conditions are true:
- Their previous tuition total was below the term tuition cap for their program
- The withdrawals brought them below the tuition cap for their program, based on their remaining enrolled credits
- They were enrolled in Open Studies
- They were enrolled in a term that does not have a tuition cap for their program
Tuition deposits ($250 for Canadian citizens and permanent residents, $1,000 for international students*) are non-refundable.
Domestic Students will automatically receive any refunds they are eligible for, subject to the processing estimate noted above.
International Students must complete and remit the Refund Request Form for International Students (pdf), plus any other supporting letters and documentation, by email to askNAIT@nait.ca or by fax to 780.471.8426. Courses must be dropped before submitting a refund request form. Incomplete refund requests will not be accepted. All wire transfer payments are refunded in the form of a cheque in the name of the student, the exception being students' identified as Company Sponsored
*Exceptions may be considered in the event of a study permit / visa denial. Tuition deposit refund requests due to visa denial must include a copy of the IRCC denial letter and be submitted by the term start date indicated on the visa letter of acceptance, and prior to class start if any classes begin earlier than the term start date.
