What does the law say?
What the aplicant should do now?
reapply with an explanation letter and corrected date documents or call cic to reopen the file?
The visa officer gave him 30 days to update his status.
Anyone familiar with such situation?
Law says you have 180 days to apply for pgwp, he is past that now so I don't think he can apply.
He should call ircc and explain the issue and see if they agree to reopen the case.

It is important what the letter actually says, because what you are saying now is different from your first post.

Also its a very strange error by the school & him not to check the dates, is the school pgwp eligible for sure?

Refund depends on what stage the application is in, you generally only get refund if they haven't touched the application, so you should send a webform to cancel but you never know if there will be a refund. Also I believe border officer should have put in a cancellation of your online application.
Did you need TRV to flagpole?

I have asked him to show me his rejection letter.
He has been given 30 days by IRCC officer to fix this issue and reapply/update. Now he is confused whether he should update using the same account or open a new account and apply afresh. To me this is very very strange that a renowned college in Toronto can do such mistake in printing dates in transcript and degree completion letter.
He will call IRCC today. Already contacted college and I can hopefully update you all about it tomorrow morning.
