  7. A current student whose application for a renewal or an extension of a study permit and/or temporary resident/visitor visa has been declined for any personal reasons, such as unsatisfactory academic performance, poor attendance, serious violation of the College’s rules and regulations, expulsion from the College, and/or whose study permit is revoked by the Canadian Immigration Authority, because of a violation or breach of the terms and conditions of the student’s authorization or temporary resident/visitor visa will NOT be entitled to a refund of any fees.
