Cancellation, Withdrawal and Refunds
On this page
In the event that a program is cancelled, students are eligible for a full refund of application fees, deposits and tuition fees previously paid.
All programs are subject to cancellation due to insufficient enrolment.
Options for Post-Secondary/Post-Graduate Program Withdrawal
Follow the instructions for withdrawing, below, based on the situation that applies to you.
It is the students' responsibility to confirm their decision to withdraw from their MITT program by submitting a withdrawal form (see options below). The effective date of withdrawal is the date the completed withdrawal form is received by MITT.
Students remain enrolled in their program until an appropriate withdrawal form has been submitted. If a withdrawal form is not received, enrollment continues and failing grades will be assigned on the final transcript.
Applicant who has not been admitted yet:
To formally withdraw your application, please email email@example.com from the email account associated with your application and include your full name, MITT student number, the program and intake applied to.
Admitted student whose program has not started:
To formally withdraw from your program prior to the first day of classes (as indicated on your Letter of Acceptance), complete the Admitted Student Withdrawal Form [PDF] and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Current Student (program/classes have started):
To formally withdraw from your program once classes have started, please complete the Program Withdrawal Form and submit it to email@example.com.
Students who withdraw may be eligible for a refund of tuition and fees. For detailed information about refunds see the Refund Policies below. A refund may be reduced by non-refundable fees as of the start date of your program and any outstanding debts such as tuition and fees, textbooks, kits and miscellaneous supplies or equipment.
Students may find it helpful to seek advice from one of our student advisors to confirm their understanding of potential academic and financial consequences of program withdrawal. For the option to chat with a student advisor, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Post-secondary and/or post-graduate students interested in returning to a program following a gap in their studies are asked to contact email@example.com.
Information on requesting a deferral of admission can be found here.
