The only negative aspect is not getting back the deposit.

I doubt that there would be any implications, after all there are students on wait-lists and things that could accept your position (they can send out offers in the Summer to some people in such cases which does happen). However, as you know you will not get back your deposit, of course. I also wouldn’t wait too long to withdraw as there are a lot of people who would gladly take your spot, I’m sure.

They can’t force you to go to their school, they just keep your deposit and call it a day.

Hi there,

I work in the Office of the Registrar at Concordia so I thought I’d step in an answer your question.

If you confirm your acceptance but in the end choose not to attend you won’t be penalized in any way other than not getting back your deposit. As one of the others who answered your question has already stated it may keep some people on waiting lists for the program or for Rez but that isn’t something that you should necessarily need to take into consideration.

Receiving an offer of admission doesn’t 100% guarantee that you’re going to register for the courses. Ideally we’d love for you to confirm and attend, but we do know that there are a lot of things to consider when making your final plans for university.

You have up until the end of the second week of class to add courses, so you have all summer to figure out what you’re going to do. Keep in mind though that depending on what you’ve been admitted into you might require advising or an orientation session before registering for your courses and that courses will fill up quickly over the next few months.

Best case scenario is to confirm, register, and then drop the courses before the tuition refund deadline. If you drop the courses before that date then you won’t need to pay any fees nor will the courses appear on your academic transcript. That way you have a place, AND the courses you want, should you decide 100% that Concordia is going to be your new home.

I hope that helps! You can find me on our page for newly admitted Concordia students at facebook.com/YourConcordia2012.2013 where we answer all kinds of questions like yours.

Hope to see you on campus :)
