  • S = Winter section (January–April), OR second subsection (July–August) of the Summer Term

The academic dates and deadlines below include enrolment dates, drop deadlines, assessment periods, petition deadlines and more. Graduate students can visit the SGS website for a full listing of sessional dates and holidays.

It is important to take note of all your academic dates, and payment and refund deadlines. Your refund eligibility depends on a variety of factors including how your fees are assessed and on what date you cancelled the course. Please note that the course add/drop dates are not the same as the fee refund schedule. Deadlines for fee payment, fee refund schedules and other financial dates are posted on the Student Accounts website.

Being unaware of an academic, payment or refund deadline is not a typical reason to receive an exception or an extension.
