If full payment is not received at this time and the student has not submitted all necessary documentation or completed the application process for Student Financial Assistance prior to the start of the semester, the student must make payment arrangements prior to attending classes. 

If a student’s Financial Assistance application is denied, the student is responsible for all charges incurred and must make alternative payment arrangements with the Student Accounts Office. 

Failure to comply with a payment schedule is cause for suspension of training, until payment is received. In the event the student’s account becomes delinquent, the STUDENT will be responsible for all costs of collection.

ADD/DROP TUITION ADJUSTMENT 

A student who stops attending a class but remains enrolled in other classes during the enrollment period may receive a refund of tuition.  

Any student wishing to add or drop a course after registration must contact Student Services before any adjustment of tuition or academic record can be made. Courses cannot be added after the first five days from the start of the module.

WITHDRAWAL OR DISMISSAL  

Students have the right to withdraw from a program of instruction at any time. If a student attends the University and officially withdraws or is involuntarily withdrawn or dismissed, the student is obligated to pay for the institutional charges (tuition and fees) and possible equipment costs.

The amount of tuition and fees owed to the University is prorated based on the date the student withdraws.  

  • If a student withdraws before the start of the first Module in the semester*, the full tuition will be refunded. 
  • If a student withdraws after the start of classes but before the end of the first census period**, 90% of tuition associated with the classes in the current Module and all of the tuition associated with the classes in the second Module of the semester will be refunded. 
  • If a student withdraws after the census period but before the start of the second Module of the semester, the tuition associated with the courses in the second Module of the semester will be fully refunded. 
  • If a student withdraws after the start of the second Module, but before the end of the second Module census period, 90% of the tuition associated with the classes from the second Module of the semester will be refunded. 
  • If a student withdraws after the census period for the second Module of the semester, no tuition will be refunded for that semester.  

*Semester (payment period) is two 8-week Modules. The semester schedule is based upon the start date of the student. 

**Census period is the first 10 calendar days of each Module. 

The amount of tuition and fees owed to the University and charges for equipment are subtracted from the amount a student paid for tuition and fees. If the amount owed is more than the amount paid to the student’s account, the student must make arrangements to pay the University the outstanding balance. Student balances that remain outstanding for a period of 90 days without payment may be forwarded to an agency for collection. Additional fees will apply and this further attempt to collect the outstanding debt will adversely affect a student’s permanent credit history. 

If the amount paid for institutional charges is more than the amount owed, a refund will be made available to the student within 45 days of the last day of attendance. 

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE REFUNDS 

The student who drops all classes for the semester is considered to be withdrawn even though the student intends to resume classes at a later date. 

If the student receives (or the University receives on the student’s behalf) more financial assistance than the student has earned, the unearned funds must be returned to the applicable grant and/or loan program. 

REPEATING COURSES 

Any course needing to be repeated due to failure, withdrawal, or unsatisfactory academic performance as required by the program will cause additional tuition charges upon registration for the retake. The student accounts office can help the student plan for these expenses.   

LEAVE OF ABSENCE 

A student who does not intend to enroll for an upcoming Module but intends to return in a future semester must complete a Leave of Absence Form prior to the start of the semester of the intended leave. Approved leaves of absence must be requested in writing and may not exceed 180 days in a calendar year. Please note that a leave of absence (approved or unapproved) may delay a student’s expected graduation date.

TERMINATION BY THE UNIVERSITY 

A student who fails to maintain satisfactory progress, violates safety regulations, interferes with other students’ work, is disruptive, obscene, under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or does not make timely tuition payments, is subject to immediate termination.

JOB PLACEMENT ASSISTANCE  

Career success will depend mainly on the student’s attitude, the effort put into studies, the diligence of the job search, and the job finally accepted. Therefore, we do not and cannot guarantee students a job. Our employees are prohibited from making any representations or any promises in regard to placement.

 

CANCELLATION OF CLASSES 

The University reserves the right to cancel a starting class if the number of students enrolling is insufficient. Such a cancellation will be considered a rejection by the University and will entitle the student to a full refund of all money paid. 

TRANSFER OF CREDIT TO ANOTHER INSTITUTION 

The transferability of credits earned at Beal University Canada is at the complete discretion of an institution to which a student may seek to transfer. Acceptance of the degree, diploma, or certificate earned in a program of study is also at the complete discretion of the institution to which a student may seek to transfer. If the credits or degree, diploma, or certificate earned at the University are not accepted at the institution to which a student seeks to transfer, the student may be required to repeat some or all of the coursework at that institution. For this reason, a student should make certain that attendance at Beal University Canada will meet his or her educational goals. This may include contacting an institution to which a student may seek to transfer after attending Beal University Canada to determine if the credits or degree, diploma or certificate will transfer.  

CHANGES IN THE AGREEMENT   

Any changes in the agreement will not be binding on either the student or the University unless such changes are acknowledged in writing by an authorized representative of the University and by the student. 

SEVERABILITY 

If any paragraph or sub-paragraph is held invalid, the paragraph shall not affect any other paragraph or sub-paragraph that can have effect without the paragraph or sub-paragraph and thus is separate one from the other. 

GRIEVANCE AND APPEALS

If the grievance remains unresolved, students may appeal under the Corrective Action Policy who may forward the issue to the Appeals Committee to review the matter and to make a recommendation. A copy of the procedure is available upon request. After exhausting the above avenues, students may make a final appeal to the New Brunswick Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour.
