VESi offers courses each semester, and registration begins on the first day of each term. We do not have a registration deadline, however, final assignments are due on the last day of each term. It is suggested to allow at least 4 weeks to complete these online courses, so plan your registration with this in mind.

- Spring term: January 1 – May 31
- Summer term: June 1 – July 31
- Fall term: August 1 – December 31
Refunds for VESi courses require written request of withdrawal from the course. Refunds are computed from the date the course registration confirmation email from VESi is sent out. Refund amounts for VESi courses are based on the following schedule:
