    For information on refunds, please view our refund policy and procedure.


    International students MUST contact the International Office for information regarding withdrawal or refunds.

    Students who have landed in Canada and have a valid Canadian study permit and wish to withdraw from Durham College for any reason including transferring to another college or returning home, must visit the International Office to complete and sign an official withdrawal form to be eligible for any refund. Please note that a deduction of approximately $2600 CAD will be applied to the original payment, prior to the refund being issued to the student.

    Students must submit all necessary documentation in a secure manner when possible (in person or by email) for the refund, by the deadline of 4:00 p.m. (EST) on the withdrawal deadline. For any requests received after this deadline, no refund for first semester fees will be issued. For withdrawals after the withdrawal deadline, only subsequent semester fees paid will be reimbursed.

    The refund will be transferred to the student’s Flywire account or personal bank account. No cheques will be issued.

    Provided that all documentation and conditions outlined above are met, a refund will be authorized for the total fees paid, less the amounts to be withheld per the refund policy, plus any direct costs incurred to process refunds, such as wire transfer fees charged by the bank.

    Book an appointment with an International Student Advisor.

    *If the reason you need a refund isn’t shown then please contact the international office with a detailed message as to why you need to refund your tuition.

    *Please allow 6-8 weeks for processing.
