Academic Dates & Deadlines

The academic dates below include enrolment dates, drop deadlines, exam periods, petition deadlines and more.

It is important to take note of all your academic dates, and payment and refund deadlines. Your refund eligibility depends on a variety of factors including how your fees are assessed (either program fee or per-course fee) and on what date you cancelled the course. 

Being unaware of an academic, payment or refund deadline is not a typical reason to get an exception or extension.
