Refund deadlines for all other irregular courses

Courses offered outside of the standard term dates have specific prorated Refund and VW deadlines.  Refer to the Class Schedule for the dates that apply to your course, or confirm the dates with your faculty/college/school.

Refunds are offered before completion of 15 percent of the course or program term. Voluntary withdrawals are permitted before completion of 75 percent of the course or program for single term courses or 58 percent for courses that span two or more terms, but no refunds will be granted.

Are you eligible for a refund?

In order to receive a refund of fees, students wishing to withdraw from courses must do so before the end of the revision period in each term. If you have not withdrawn by the revision deadline, you must pay your tuition fees regardless of attendance.

The amount eligible for refunds is calculated based on the full cost of the course, not including field trip fees and late registration payments. Fee adjustments will first be applied to outstanding balances, including fees assessed for the next term of registration.

The following fees are not refunded when you withdraw from your program or any courses in it:

  • Application for Admission
  • Admission Acceptance Deposit
  • Examination Fees
  • Field Work Fees
  • Incidental Fees
  • Late Payment Fees
  • Letter of Permission Fee
  • Other Compulsory Fees

Appealing your fees

The Registrar’s Office is currently closed to the public. Until further notice, Fee appeal applications and the accompanying attachments must be submitted through the fee.appeals@umanitoba.ca email. 

To appeal your academic fees on medical or compassionate grounds, you must submit a Fee Appeal Form.

If the voluntary withdrawal deadline has not yet passed, you may simply drop your courses in Aurora and submit a fee appeal form to the registrar's office. 

If the voluntary withdrawal deadline has already passed, you must first submit an authorized withdrawal request before submitting the fee appeal form.

Appeals are considered by the Registrar's Committee on Fee Appeals. Where the amount in question exceeds $500, you may re-appeal an unfavourable decision to a University fee appeals committee.
