Tuition Refund Policy

  1. Once a student has been accepted by Hanson International Academy (‘HIA’) and paid all tuition fees in full, there will be no refund. However, a student may be eligible for a refund under the following circumstances:

    a) When a student is unable to obtain a valid student visa to enter Canada, the said student will receive a full refund of tuition fees. The Registration Fee ($200) is not refundable.

    b) If a student has lost his or her learning and financial capability as a result of severe injury or the death of the student or of the principal sponsor and will consequently be unable to attend school, a student may be eligible for a tuition refund. To be eligible for a refund, the student or the principal sponsor must provide Hanson International Academy the following: 

    i. Proof of a notarized certificate issued by a Coroner’s Office; or 

    ii. A certified letter of health status from a municipal public hospital recognized by the government of the student’s home country.
     
  2. In order to be eligible for a refund, the student must provide the following documents:

    a) A letter in writing requesting a refund, signed by the student;

    b) Completed Request for Refund form, available at Student Services;

    c) Proof of a visa rejection issued by the Canadian Embassy or High Commission; and

    d) All original documents including all receipts issued by the school.
     
  3. If a student is granted a student visa and decides not to study at our school, there will be no tuition refunds under any conditions.
     
  4. There will be no refund under any circumstances if the student’s visa application is refused, and he/she does not apply for a refund within 8 months from the date when the student received refusal letter.
     
  5. Currently registered students whose application for a renewal or an extension of a study permit and/or temporary resident visa has been declined for any personal reasons, such as unsatisfactory academic performance, poor attendance, serious violation of the school rules and regulations, and/or whose study permit is revoked by IRCC will not be entitled to any refund.
     
  6. Currently registered students who withdraw from a Hanson International Academy program for any reason other than those listed in clause 1 will not be entitled to a refund of any fees.
     
  7. If a currently registered student withdraws from a Hanson International Academy course (also known as a ‘drop’) 1 week after the registration date, the tuition of the course(s) dropped will not be transferrable.
