Tuition & Fees

Before beginning your graduate program, it is important to understand the costs involved. These costs include tuition, general fees, books, accommodations, living expenses, food and transportation.

As a Graduate Student you will pay Tuition each year:

Graduate May 2013 - April 2014 Tuition Fees

Graduate May 2014 - April 2015 Tuition Fees

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.

Most General Fees are assessed on a per-term basis and include UPASS (Transit Pass), Campus Recreation and Athletics, and a Student Services Fee.

Some General Fees are assessed once a year and include:

These fees are tied to the student's registration anniversary.

Other Costs
Check with your program for an estimation of the cost of books and equipment.

Investigate scholarships and other sources of funding available, and discuss funding with your graduate program administrator or director. Students in thesis-based programs are normally offered a funding package from various sources at the time of admission.

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.

Need additional help with the payment plan application? Contact the Faculty of Graduate Studies at or (403) 220-4938.
