Changes and refunds

Cancellations & Refunds

NSCC reserves the right to cancel or suspend courses, change start and end dates/times, combine classes, change instructors or limit enrolment.

We'll notify you by phone or email (no later than 3 business days before the intended course start date) if your course is cancelled due to lack of enrolment, postponed to a later date or filled to capacity prior to receipt of your registration. If your class is cancelled, a full refund will be issued, by cheque, within 2 – 4 weeks.

Withdrawals & Refunds

Dates for withdrawals without academic penalty vary. Check with your campus for information.

If you've not missed the withdrawal deadline, complete the Course Revision Form (links to Microsoft form) and submit it to Student Services at your campus, or via email

Failure to attend class doesn’t constitute withdrawal. Your official withdrawal date is the date on which your withdrawal form is received.

If eligible, refunds are issued as follows:

  • 100% of the amount before the first day of class;
  • 95% of the amount during the first 14% of your course; and
  • 0% of the amount after 14% of your course

Refunds can only be made by cheque, regardless of the method of payment. Ensure that your student account reflects your current address and allow 2 – 4 weeks for reimbursement.
