How your Tuition and General Fees are calculated

Students in PhD and thesis based Masters programs pay full fees at the outset of the program, and continuing fees in later years, this fee structure should be taken into account in your financial planning. Your program may have tuition fees that are different from the regular full-time graduate program tuition amounts shown in the Fact Sheets. To see if your program has different rates, please review the Program Specific Tuition Fees guide.

Tuition: Program Specific Tuition Fees

All students, domestic and international, pay the same general fees all year around. Most of these are assessed on a per-term basis and include UPASS (Transit Pass), Campus Recreation and Athletics and a Student Services Fee. Other fees are assessed yearly, based on the student’s registration anniversary. To find the General Fees that apply to you, locate the term (i.e. Spring, Summer, Fall, or Winter) and the month in which you will be starting your program in the General Fees Schedule.

Payment Options
Tuition and General Fees can be paid through online banking in the same way as you might pay a utility bill. Credit cards are not accepted for payment of tuition and fees. You may also send payment by mail in the form of a cheque, money order or bank draft. Instructions are available through Enrolment Services.

If you are receiving funding from the University that is more than your fees you may apply for a Graduate Student Payment Plan. This plan allows you to make payments on your fees over a specified period of time.

Application forms

Fall/Winter applications will be available when tuition fees are approved and posted to students accounts in May 2015

Effective FALL 2015

Effective WINTER 2016 

NOTE: Check your Student Centre for charges and due dates of your approved Payment Plan. Students denied a Payment Plan will be notified and responsible for paying for all fees due by the appropriate fee deadline.

Students must ensure their complete application is submitted well in advance of Term Fee deadlines to avoid late penalties.
