Fee Collection and Refunds for Vocational Programs
To ensure that there is a clear understanding that a student has withdrawn, the student should read the law related to respective program type and format available via on the above details refund policy link and then notify the college in writing via refund form available on contact us/support web page. Students do not have to give a reason for their withdrawal from a program. The letter can be sent via designated refund form or by e-mail, or be delivered in person. This action eliminates any disputes or confusion over the effective date of withdrawal, which in turn can affect the amount of refund due to the student.
Being informed via above-designated form or email with refusal letter that an international student has been denied a study visa is the same as receiving a written notice of withdrawal.
All refunds will be paid in Canadian dollars. Refunds will be paid within 30 days of a student's notice of withdrawal from the program or within 45 days of the start of the program if a contract is cancelled because a student does not attend classes.
For more information on refunds and collection of fees, including examples of refund calculations, please consult the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005.
Students are responsible for textbooks and printed materials for any given program, subject to course requirements. P.D.L.E.S. will provide notes and materials via electronic delivery only (Downloadable notes via computer). Students may print and use the same if they choose.
Decisions on any given program cancellation or deferral due to a waitlist, insufficient registration or enrollment are made 7-10 business days prior to the program start date. If a student registers in the program and it is subsequently cancelled by P.D.L.E.S. administration, the program registration fee will be refunded 100% in 7 to 10 business days via the same medium as it was paid originally.
