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

To cancel your registration and be eligible for a refund, the Office of the Registrar must receive notice.

Cancellations must be submitted by email for credit courses.


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.



Please note that once a cancellation is processed, the corresponding amount will show up as credit on the account that can be used towards another registration. The credit will stay on the account unless a refund is requested.


To request a refund please fill out a service inquiry form. The processing time is 8 weeks.


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. A minimum of three (3) working days notice must be received for courses of 18 hours or less. Transfers are based on course availability.
