Nipissing University reserves the right to amend course offerings and course formats, and to limit enrolment and cancel courses. All on-line courses are subject to limited enrolment and it is recommended that students register early. A searchable list of updated offerings is available on WebAdvisor. Both new and continuing students are encouraged to register on-line through WebAdvisor.

Absolutely no registrations will be accepted after the registration deadline. We reserve the right to cancel courses with insufficient enrolment at the time of the registration deadline. Full payment is required at the time of registration. Deposits will not be accepted. All outstanding documentation from previous sessions must be submitted before registrations will be accepted into subsequent courses.

No grades are released until after the published end date of the course.


All Course Withdrawals will be subject to a non-refundable cancellation fee.

Course withdrawals after the course begins $200 non-refundable cancellation fee

The withdrawal date is considered to be the date the student withdraws using WebAdvisor or the date the withdrawal letter is received in the Office of the Registrar. If a credit remains on a student's account after all fees are paid, a refund cheque will be issued. Refund cheques are generally processed 4 to 6 weeks after a student has withdrawn and are mailed to the permanent home address.

Students may receive a tuition refund (less the applicable cancellation fee) depending on the date the withdrawal is received. Students who withdraw after the dates specified on the Important Dates schedule will not be eligible for a tuition refund.

Please recognize that Additional qualification courses involve a significant workload and extensions will generally not be granted except in truly extenuating circumstances.

Course instructors are contracted to teach for a period of time specific to each course and will not be asked to instruct or mark past the closing date of the course.

In the case of assignment extensions, these must be requested BEFORE the due date of the assignment or they will not be considered.  Assignment extensions are not guaranteed and will be granted only on an exception basis, if requested prior to the deadline.  Students are required to make a meaningful contribution to the discussion board throughout the course and must meet the instructor's expectations regarding participation.

​Candidates who intend to register for an Honours Specialist, Intermediate or Senior ABQ course, must be pre-approved before registering. An official undergraduate transcript is required to determine whether you meet the prerequisite requirements. The Registrar’s Office will accept a transcript by fax or email and if approved to register, an official transcript will be required.

Please note for an Honours Specialist, evidence of successful teaching experience is required including experience in the subject area.


Course access instructions are posted online. Students will not be given access to their course until shortly before the course is scheduled to begin (normally 2 to 3 days before the course start date).
