Reg.: Schedule 2, s. 8(1)(e)
Any student who withdraws from two study periods after having received student funding is not eligible for further funding for 12 months from the date of their second withdrawal.
History of withdrawal rules do not apply when a student changes to part-time status.
If a student’s application is rejected for a history of withdrawals, the student may request reconsideration through the Review Process by submitting appropriate documentation with the request explaining any extenuating circumstances (e.g., a family emergency, due to medical reasons, or studies impacted by COVID-19 pandemic).
A student who receives funding for two successive short-term programs (each less than or equal to 12 months), or switches between short-term programs during a study period, is not eligible for funding for a third short-term program for a 12-month period.
