Academic Policies

Although the course for which you are registered may be a course offered from another Ontario college, students must abide by the academic policies stated by St. Clair College. These policies are outlined below:

Course Cancellations

St. Clair College reserves the right to cancel/reschedule courses as may be necessary from time to time. In the event that the College cancels your course, your course fees will be fully refunded and mailed within a 3 to 5 week period.

Refund Policy for Online Courses

An official withdrawal before the first week of the semester will result in a full refund. An official withdrawal after the first week and before the third week of the semester will result in a full refund LESS a $25.00 Administration Fee. No refund will apply to an official withdrawal on the first day of the third week of the semester or later. If you cannot continue your class, (whether or not you are in time for a refund), please inform the college so that your student record will indicate a withdrawal as opposed to a fail (F).


Grades will be posted approximately 3 weeks after the end of the semester.
