Tuition Refunds


Types of Refunds

After you sign your contract:

Every student is given a 4-day cooling off period, where you can change your mind without penalty. If you choose to cancel your Alberta Student Enrolment Contract on or before the 4th business day after you signed it, your tuition and registration fee will be refunded to the method of payment or payer that initially paid the fees in the initial manner it was paid.

Before your program start date we will issue a refund of your registration fee if:

  • You terminate your contract before the 4-day cooling off period
  • The Health Care Aide Academy terminates your contract before your
    program start date
  • The program does not start by the agreed upon date and you terminate
    your contract

You may be entitled to a refund, under Section 17 of the Private Vocational Training Regulation, if your Alberta Student Enrolment Contract is canceled after your program start date. The amount is based on how much of the program has been delivered. If you have paid all of the tuition for the program and completed:

  • less than 10% of your program, your refund is 75% of your tuition
  • more than 10% but less than 50% of your program, your refund is 40%
    of your tuition
  • more than 50% of your program, the college is not required to provide
    you with a refund
    If you haven’t yet paid all of the tuition for the program and completed:
  • less than 10% of your program, the college is entitled to 25% of the total
    cost of tuition
  • more than 10% but less than 50% of your program, the college is
    entitled to 60% of the total cost of tuition
  • more than 50% of your program, the college is entitled to 100% of the
    total cost of tuition

If you have not yet paid all of the tuition for the program and completed:

  • less than 10% of your program, the college is entitled to 25% of the total
    cost of tuition
  • more than 10% but less than 50% of your program, the college is
    entitled to 60% of the total cost of tuition
  • more than 50% of your program, the college is entitled to 100% of the
    total cost of tuition

If we have received a tuition fee in excess of the amount we are entitled to, we will refund the excess amount.
