The refund tables outline the percentage at certain dates during the academic year at which credit is calculated for full withdrawal from the University or for a course drop by a part-time student. The actual amount of refund will depend on the amount of fees actually paid. The refund schedule assumes that all fees are paid. Student Association and Organization Fees are not refundable by the University.
While Students may opt to seek financing for their education through private lenders, please be aware that Trent University will not issue refunds greater than the student's Trent-related expenses(tuition, ancillary fees, meal plans, and ON-campus housing).
Students who are borrowing funds to pay for OFF-campus housing and other living expenses should arrange for funds to be deposited directly into their personal bank account.

Refunds can take 3-4 weeks for processing.
$25.00 refund administration fee will be charged per refund transaction.
Payments made by credit card will be refunded back to the credit card payment originated from.
