Continuing Education refunds and withdrawals

Save yourself from confusion by getting familiar with our policies. Knowledge is power. It is up to you to understand these policies before registering for our courses.

Looking for undergraduate program refund or withdrawal? Contact the AUArts Registrar.


Withdrawal requests must be submitted by email. Your withdrawal will be effective from the date we receive your request.

Please include the following information in your withdrawal request:

  • Your name
  • Course title + code
  • Course start date
  • Reason for withdrawal


Refunds are offered on the following terms:

  1. The $55 processing fee (+ GST) included in your tuition is non-refundable after registration.

  2. In order to receive a full tuition refund you must withdraw at least seven (7) calendar days before your first course meeting.

  3. No tuition will be refunded for a withdrawal under seven (7) calendar days before the start date of your course. 

Course Cancellations

Courses are subject to cancellation at any time before their start date. Cancellation is based on inability to reach minimum enrollment numbers.

If a course is cancelled we will notify you immediately. You may choose to receive a full refund, or you may transfer to another course in the same term. 

Wait Lists

Many of our courses fill up quickly! If you register for a class that is full, you will be automatically added to a waitlist.

If a space opens up before the second class, we will contact those waitlisted in the order they were placed on the list.

If you have any questions please contact us at
