4.2 The prize may be redeemed at the discretion of the winner, who shall use the prize no later than December 1, 2019. To redeem the prize, the winner must have been accepted, confirmed Robertson’s offer of admission, and paid any applicable tuition deposits for the full-time or part-time Academic Program of the winner’s choice. If the winner does not use the prize prior to December 1, 2019, the winner shall forfeit the prize.

4.3 The prize must be used in a single academic year.

4.4 The prize must be used in respect of tuition fees applicable to the course requirements of a single Academic Program. If the winner wishes to transfer from one Academic Program to another, then the winner shall forfeit the portion of the prize that was to be applied to outstanding tuition fees.

4.5 The total value of the prize is not to exceed fifteen thousand Canadian dollars ($15,000.00). Therefore, the approximate retail value of the prize equals a maximum of $15,000.00. If prize dollars exceed tuition dollars, then the excess will be forfeited.

4.6 Any additional costs (including compulsory non-tuition related fees, parking or locker fees, recreational fees or fees associated with extended health benefits) and any applicable taxes associated with the prize and incurred by the winner are the sole responsibility of the winner and not the responsibility of Robertson.

No response from email or phone notification after three attempts, return of email notification as undeliverable after three attempts, or failure to return the Contest Documents within the time specified by Robertson shall be determined as an unclaimed prize and will result in forfeit of the prize by the selected entrant.
