Refunds must be requested within 30 days of withdrawal. The appropriate form must be completed and submitted to the Office of the Registrar to validate the tuition refund request. All tuition fees, payments and refunds are assessed in accordance with the guidelines outlined by the Private Career College Branch of Alberta Ministry of Advanced Education. Each student must sign an Alberta Student Enrolment Contract at the time of enrolling in their program. The amount of tuition eligible to be refunded to the student depends on when their Alberta Student Enrolment Contract is terminated. The contract is terminated when the student withdraws or is expelled from their program. For full details on withdrawals and expulsions at ABM College, please refer to the ABM College Academic & Conduct Policy. If students are receiving student financial assistance, they must notify their funding source of their withdrawal or the termination of their student contract.
If you choose to cancel your contract on or before the 4th business day after you signed it, ABM College will refund any tuition fees you've paid.
ABM College will refund your tuition fees if:
- You terminate your contract before the 4-day cooling off period
- ABM College terminates your contract before your program start date
- Your program does not start by the agreed upon date and you choose to terminate your contract
You may be entitled to a tuition refund if your contract is cancelled after your program start date. The amount is based on how much of the program you have completed.
- less than 10% of your program: your refund is at minimum 75% of your tuition
- more than 10% but less than 50% of your program: your refund is at minimum 40% of your tuition
- more than 50% of your program: ABM College will not provide you with a refund
- less than 10% of your program: ABM College is entitled to up to 25% of the total cost of tuition
- more than 10% but less than 50% of your program: ABM College is entitled to up to 60% of the total cost of tuition
- more than 50% of your program: ABM College is entitled to up to 100% of the total cost of tuition
ABM College does not refund incidental fees, such as: textbooks, lesson materials, supplies, printing, parking, equipment, etc.
If you have completed more than 50% of your program, ABM College will not refund your tuition.
How your program is delivered to you may change without penalty, provided the training you receive meets the requirements outlined in your signed contract. If your lessons are being supplied, marked and returned to you (such as through correspondence), then you are still able to complete your program and are therefore not eligible for a refund.
ABM College will make all eligible refund payments to whomever paid your tuition fees. This could be:
- directly to you, if you paid for your tuition
- your lender, if you have an outstanding student loan
- a government, agency or person who paid for you to complete the program
If the refund does not cover the full amount of money you borrowed or were provided to complete the program, you are responsible for arranging to pay the remaining amount.
Failure to pay tuition or other fees due to ABM College is considered a debt to the college. If any outstanding fees are not paid in full after ABM College has provided written warning, students may be subject to expulsion. If outstanding fees are not paid by the time of graduation, the college may withhold a student’s credential. If outstanding fees are not paid after written warning is provided, the debt is subject to further actions including but not limited to, being sent to a collections agency, and a negative rating reported to your credit bureau.

"I recommend ABM College to almost everyone I meet; great opportunity, friendly staff, I feel valued, appreciated, acknowledged and rewarded, which keeps me motivated mentally and physically. The administration, faculty and staff are truly dedicated and committed to the school community as a whole.”
I loved every minute of going to ABM College, I felt they prepared me so well for my course and for whats to come after I graduated. I could not be happier with my education and now my successful career as a Health Care Aide. - Kelly Reis
True to their slogan "Education that gets you hired".
I very much recommend this school - the staff and teachers were awesome and very friendly. Proud ABM College graduate!
Studying at ABM College was a big jumpstart on my entire career, I was working in an oil and gas company for almost 11 years and when the economy crashed, I went to ABM College and enrolled in the Health Care Aide certificate. A week after I graduated, I applied and got the job I am at now. Most of my co-workers are from ABM College so I highly recommend it.
