If cheques are not honoured where drawn, VCC will immediately exclude a student from class and assess a charge on all cheques returned by the bank. Students who pay for tuition or other fees with cheques for which there are insufficient funds or who place a stop payment order on their cheques are only permitted to make subsequent payments by cash, credit card, money order or certified cheque. 

A student must pay any fees owing to VCC before re-registering at any campus or obtaining any official record of grades. 

A service fee is charged for returned NSF cheques. 


VCC does not allow students with outstanding tuition fees to attend classes and discontinues such students from the program or course. Re-instatement into the program or course requires permission from the dean as well as payment of outstanding debts. VCC charges a re-instatement fee in addition to the regular fees. Outstanding debts are sent for collection. 


There are deadlines to drop a course or program and be eligible for a refund, and also deadlines to withdraw from a course without academic penalty. For details on these deadlines and what tuition and fees might be eligible for refund, please review the refund procedures.

If you meet the criteria for dropping or withdrawing, please complete a withdrawal form ‌and submit it to the Registrar's Office.
