CANADIAN UNIVERSITY OFFERS FULL TUITION REFUNDS
Ontario Tech University’s Experience Guarantee will refund all full-time and part-time students who are unsatisfied with the fall 2020 university experience.
The guarantee applies to students enrolled in its fall 2020 term. A full refund will be given to students who withdraw from their programme by Friday, Oct. 9, with no penalty.
Provost and Vice-President Lori Livingston said, “Blended learning has long been a part of what we do at Ontario Tech University.
“When we opened our doors in 2003, we did so with a commitment to a technology-enabled learning environment, while recognising the valuable role hands-on learning plays in preparing our graduates for the workplace. With the introduction of the new Experience Guarantee, students can be certain Ontario Tech stands behind its commitment to support them throughout their academic journey.”
The University of Ontario Institute of Technology is a public research university located in the city of Oshawa in Ontario. Founded in 2002, it is now one of the nation’s top universities for engineering and computer science, placing in the top 10 of rankings.
Is this the only Canadian university offering tuition refund?
Ontario Tech stands out as one of the first Canadian university to offer a full tuition refund.
Many Canadian colleges and universities have announced a blended-learning approach, but not tuition reductions due to this.
Canada’s most populous province is in the midst of the first of its three-stage reopening of its economy. Retail stores can now open; construction projects and some park amenities can resume too.
Ontario Tech joins other post-secondary institutions offering a blended-learning model this fall: Conestoga College, Durham College, Fanshawe College, Fleming College, King’s University College, Nipissing University, Ryerson University, Saint Paul University, St Lawrence College, University of Ottawa, University of Toronto, University of Waterloo, University of Windsor, Western University, Wilfrid Laurier University, York University.
