Tuition and Fees

Tuition and general fees charged by the University of Calgary are approved annually by the Board of Governors.  UCalgary assesses tuition and general fees for each term that you are an active full- or part-time student. In addition to tuition fees, some programs have program-specific fees that are charged each term. Students pay the fees applicable to the term in which their current program of studies begin, regardless of when they received their letter of admission to the program.  A full breakdown of assessed fees is available in the My Financials section of the Student Centre.

In addition to course-based tuition rates, program-specific tuition is charged per term for students enrolled into specific programs.  General Fees are assessed based on academic load, full or part time studies.
