International Students

The following information pertains to Continuing Education students attending programs and courses under the authorization of a Canadian Study Permit.

  • Requests for refunds must be submitted in writing to askNAIT@nait.ca using the Refund Request Form for International Students (pdf).
  • The refund deadline is a minimum of 5 full calendar days prior to the start of the Continuing Education program or course. Please refer to your Letter of Acceptance (LOA) for the program/course start dates.
  • The payment for tuition and other applicable fees will be refunded, minus a CAD$250 administrative fee plus any additional fees for dropping the program/course(s).
  • Please note: In the event a refund is required, ALL Wire Transfer Payments are refunded in the form of a cheque in the student's name, the exception being students' identified as Company Sponsored. Therefore, students choosing this method of fee payment should be advised to first confirm with their financial institution that a foreign cheque will be accepted and negotiated.

If you are unable to attend NAIT and do not notify us by the refund deadline as noted in your Letter of Acceptance, any tuition and other applicable fees paid for the first term will be retained by the institution and will not be refunded.

Refunds normally take between 4 to 6 weeks to process. 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 or if "Third Party" has been identified on the refund request form.
