Notes

  1. Credits are applied against any amount owing on your account. Refunds are issued only when all charges outstanding on your account have been cleared.
  2. Fee withheld refers to the amount of fees retained by the University when you drop a course during the specified time frame. You are responsible for this amount, whether or not the fees have been paid.

Do not confuse the academic withdrawal/drop dates with the refund table dates as they are different.

Dropping or changing courses may cost money. Note that you can exchange a course you are in for a different course. Using the feature to exchange a course performs the course add and course drop for you in one step. If you are not able to get into the second course successfully, e.g. it is full, you will still remain enrolled in the first course. If you are successful, the first course will be dropped. Because a successful exchange performs a course drop, exchanging a course may have a financial impact. Please refer to the table above for the term in which you have enrolled to see what the financial impact will be.

Associated Course Fees: Additional fees for course materials, lab fees etc. may be charged in individual courses. Visit the York University Courses website or the appropriate academic department or unit for information about such fees.

Program Withdrawal

To officially withdraw from the program, you must drop all of your courses through the Registration and Enrolment Module (REM). Not attending classes does not automatically withdraw you from a course and does not release you from the financial responsibility for that course. Neglecting to drop courses which you are not attending may have serious implications both financially and academically.

Notes

  1. When you drop all your courses through the Registration and Enrolment Module (REM) you will receive a credit to your student account, as outlined in the table above.
  2. Please notify the Department of Design at ysdn@yorku.ca that you have withdrawn from the program.
