We try hard to ensure that the information on the JIBC Academic Calendar is accurate and up-to-date. However, we may need to make changes to the calendar at any time without notice.

That includes adding or cancelling classes and changing fees. If in doubt, check back here later.

 

Note
The withdrawal and refund deadlines listed below apply only to 3-credit courses that are 13-15 weeks in duration, including instruction and final exams. For other courses, check their appropriate program page for deadlines.
