Frequently Asked Questions

Fall 2022 programs will be delivered in a hybrid format on-campus and in-person, with only a few hours of the curriculum delivered remotely. You will require a visa to begin your studies because program delivery includes an in-Canada, on-campus component. 

As of August 31, the Canadian Government requires students to be in Canada for their education to count towards their Post-Graduate Work Permit. As some of you still await a decision on your visa, we advise students to wait for a few more weeks. We are hopeful for a positive turnaround, so for now, start planning your pre-arrival and attend our many informative sessions on travelling to Canada.

Please watch for regular updates. Conestoga is prepared, flexible, and will act quickly for what is best for our students. We are here to support you and will provide you with more updates in August as we continue to monitor the situation.

Hybrid programs require students to be registered by September 6, the first day of classes. Instructions for completing your Fall 2022 registration can be found here and in this step-by-step video. These steps are required to be registered and access your timetable. Once you have completed the various steps. your timetable will be made available on your Conestoga Student Portal after August 8, 2022.

Our Admissions Team will contact you in August to learn more about your visa status.

Please email internationaladmissions@conestogac.on.ca if you have any questions.

Use Conestoga’s Safe Arrival Plan as a reference to help support you and your transition to Canada and Conestoga College. Make sure to read and understand each section before you travel to Canada.

Withdrawal within 10 business days of the beginning of a term or the beginning of the period for which the student paid fees in the case of a non-term or continuous intake program of instruction, the student shall receive:

  • a refund of the full tuition and ancillary fees for the term or program less the non-refundable deposit if withdrawal is made after the deposit due date *or if withdrawal is made after a deferral admission had been given.
  • a refund in full of any tuition and ancillary fees paid in advance for subsequent terms. 
  • a refund in full of any fees paid in advance for subsequent terms. This also applies to students who do not register on a term basis.

Please see our full fees policy here.

We suggest that students wait for their visa decisions for a few more weeks before considering a deferral. If students decide to defer, there are no deadlines as long as there is program availability. However, submitting a deferral request by the end of the first week of class is recommended. Please Note: deferring to a future intake is not an option for students who have completed registration and can view/access their timetable.
