Materials and Books
Most courses, instructor led, online or paper-based, require a textbook or workbook. For those courses that require a textbook, a postdated payment is required and for those courses that require a workbook, the payment is required before start of semester. Once you have completed your course or have withdrawn, you will have two weeks to return your textbooks and the postdated payment will either be returned (cheque) or destroyed. If the textbooks have not been returned, your postdated payment will be processed. Upon the return of your textbooks, a full refund will be issued. (No cash refunds are available) For students taking online courses, after completing the first unit, you will require a postdated payment before textbooks are issued.
