Course cancelled by SAIT

SAIT reserves the right to limit registration, cancel, postpone or combine courses, alter course content, dates or times, and substitute instructors. Full refunds will be issued for cancelled courses.


Course cancellation by student

Cancellations must be submitted by completing a service inquiry form

To request to drop a non-credit course, please submit a request through the Centre for Continuing Education and Professional Studies student portal.  A minimum $50 administrative fee, plus any applicable service costs, will apply.


For classroom courses 18 hours or longer, notice is required no later than 4 pm prior to the second scheduled class.


For seminars, short courses or sports camps — less than 18 hours total, or five or fewer consecutive days — notice is required three business days prior to the class start.


For Distance and online courses, notice of course cancellation must be received by the Office of the Registrar before 25% of the original course time has elapsed in order for a student to receive a tuition refund.


In all cases, there will be a minimum $50 administrative fee, plus any applicable service costs. Purchased materials, books and other resources are non-refundable.


Withdrawal from a course

Students may withdraw from a course without academic penalty by submitting written notification to the Office of the Registrar before 70% of the course hours have been taught before or — for distance and online courses — before 70% of the original course time has expired. Students who do not observe official withdrawal procedures will be assigned an "F" or a failing grade. There are no refunds issued for withdrawals.



Refunds can be requestedby filling out a service inquiry form. Please include the following: 

  • Explanation of the request
  • Full name
  • Student ID number

  • Refunds to international accounts are made via the method received.
  • All other refunds are issued by cheque.
  • Students are responsible for updating their address with the Office of the Registrar.
  • Sponsored student refunds will be issued directly to the sponsor.
  • Any student suspended or expelled from SAIT for any reason, is not eligible for a refund.

Course registration transfers

To transfer or change your registration from one session/course to another, the Office of the Registrar must receive your request in writing before the course start dates.
