Refunds and Payment Methods

Refunds and Withdrawals

Withdrawal notices for out-of-country students must be received in writing by June 14 (November 15 second semester) in order to be eligible for full refunds.  All refunds are subject to a 10% tuition administrative charge.  If a withdrawal notice is received after the specified date listed all fees will be forfeit.    

If a Saskatchewan student withdraws within 60 calendar days of the first day of classes of a semester, tuition fees will be refunded on a prorated basis (with a minimum of 10% being held). If the student withdraws after this time all fees will be forfeit.

Once a semester has begun there will be no refunds issued for the class fees of ESL, physical education, Communication Media, or IB.

Please note: Refunds may take up to 8 weeks to be processed.

Late Arrivals

Non-Saskatchewan students who arrive or return for classes late will be charged a late fee of $1500 (taken from their Education Bond).

Payment Methods and Banking Arrangements

  • Fees can be paid by cash, cheque, preauthorized payment, wire transfers, VISA or Master card; 
  • Payment must be made in Canadian funds; 
  • Students are responsible for all bank fees, including charges for wire transfers and payments through Open Apply, Luther College’s online application process;
