  • University tuition and fees are subject to review and revision at any time by the Provost Committee on Integrated Planning and/or the Board of Governors of the University.  The tuition policy can be found on the University Secretary's website.
  • Canadian student tuition for degree programs is assessed on a per credit unit basis.
  • International students registered in undergraduate classes are assessed tuition at 2.6 times the rate for Canadian students, except for those students registered in distance education classes in the certificate programs which are assessed at 1.5 times the rate for Canadian students.
  • Tuition and student fees are normally automatically charged to students at the time of registration (graduate students who began their program prior to May 1, 2005, are assessed manually).
  • Registration automatically results in a financial obligation.  Failure to make payment by the stated deadlines will result in the withholding of future services by the University and in some cases may result in the termination of registration.
  • Tuition fees are assessed at the time a student registers. They are subject to validation for accuracy and correctness at any time by Registrarial Services, Student and Enrolment Services Division. If an error is made in assessing a student's account, upon discovery, the student's account will be retroactively reassessed and the student notified of any amount credited or debited, regardless of whether or not the student has completed the class, graduated, or is no longer attending the University.
  • International students whose immigration status changes to “permanent resident” must submit a copy of the Record of Landing to Student Central. Tuition fees will be reassessed for students who become landed immigrants on or before Fall Term Payment Deadline. Students who become landed immigrants after Fall Term Payment Deadline but on or before Winter Term Payment Deadline will have tuition fees reassessed for Winter Term classes and the Winter Term portion of classes extending over both terms.
  • Student fees are non-refundable after the registration change deadline for a given term.  For multi-term classes (classes extending over two terms), students fees are non-refundable after the registration change deadline of the first term in which the class is offered.
    Material fees are non-refundable, for more information, contact DEU.
  • Tuition and fees for classes spanning both terms will be split between the terms: half will be due on the Fall Term due date and half will be due on the Winter Term due date. The exception is health and dental fees, which, if assessed, are all owing in Fall Term.
  • Previous tuition information can be found in the catalogue archives.
