Graduate students are assessed tuition and general fees as listed below. Refer to the Academic Schedule for payment deadlines or consult with the Faculty of Graduate Studies regarding payment plans.

Thesis-Based Students

Students in a thesis-based degree (master's or doctoral) program are assessed annual tuition fees. All tuition fees are pro-rated over four terms: one-third in Fall, one-third in Winter, one-sixth in Spring and one-sixth in Summer.

Students in thesis programs who register in courses with differential fees or additional program fee will be required to pay the extra fees in addition to the thesis tuition rates.

Course-Based Students

Students in most course-based graduate programs pay tuition fees on a per course basis. Some programs may charge additional program fees (refer to the Program-Specific Fee table).

Many course-based programs charge differential fees. Students who take courses with a differential rate are required to pay the differential fee.

The fees below apply to all programs unless a differential rate is specified in P.1.2.1 Graduate Program-Specific Fees.
