Refund policy

Tuition deposit

Tuition deposit is non-refundable unless your study permit application is rejected by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). You must provide the University with a copy of the letter of rejection from IRCC within three months of the date of receipt in order to receive a tuition deposit refund. The refund will be processed within 6 to 8 weeks after YukonU receives all required information and will either be in the form of a cheque or bank transfer. The final amount paid to you will be reduced by a $300 processing fee and any other applicable charges such as courier fees or bank processing charges. Please note: Tuition fees are not transferrable to other institutions.

YukonU will refund 100% of the tuition deposit if the University cancels the entire program, and there will be no charge of a $300 processing fee.


You can defer your start date for up to one year from the start date listed on your letter of acceptance before you start your studies. YukonU will keep your tuition deposit and the same rules above will apply to your deposit. If you do not begin your studies at YukonU within one year of the term you’ve applied to, you will be required to reapply to the program.

Please note:

  • To defer, you must have met all program academic requirements and completed the WritePlacer assessment, if applicable, and
  • There is a $50 charge to defer your application. A portion of your tuition deposit will cover this fee.
