Withdrawing from a Course

To withdraw from a course, you will need to notify the LIFE office in writing.


Written application can be in the form of an email sent to info@thelifeinstitute.ca or a  letter sent to The LIFE Institute, The G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education, Ryerson University, 350 Victoria Street, Toronto, ON  M5B 2K3.

A refund of course fees, minus a $20.00 administration charge, will be made if your written application is received by The LIFE Institute no less than three business days before

  • the first session of a one- to four-week course
  • the second session of all courses that last five weeks or more

Course materials, admission, or other unique costs included in the fee may not be refundable.

No refunds will be made for walks or for computer courses that last only one session.

Theatre Alive: There is no refund once the block of tickets has been purchased.

If you are comfortable explaining your reasons for withdrawal, please include them in your written withdrawal request. LIFE is trying to document the reasons people withdraw from courses as part of the ongoing course evaluation process. Your contact information will be removed before the reasons are reviewed.
