following is a general outline of the fees assessment process. It does not list
all rules or specific program anomalies. Students should seek clarification of
their situation if they have any questions.
fees are set for each session. The official Tuition Fee Schedule is submitted
to the University’s Business Board and Governing Council each spring for
approval. The approved schedule covers the fees charged in a summer session and
the following fall-winter session. Fees can be changed at any time upon
approval of the Governing Council.
records of all students include a Degree Program of Study (Degree POSt). In
some divisions, enrolment in a Subject Program of Study (Subject POSt) is also
recorded. The assessment of academic fees maps to the programs of study
recorded on a student’s academic record.
Fees can be
assessed by program or by course. Assessment rules vary by program. There
is both a domestic and international rate for academic fees; the same
assessment rules apply for each rate. To determine how the fees in your program
are assessed, check your account on the ACORN. The academic fee charges
are listed as ‘course fee’ or ‘program fee’.
This is a flat rate amount charged to all students in a program; there may be a
full-time and/or part-time rate.
Fees are assessed on a course by course basis. When a course is added, the
course fee is charged immediately, regardless of when the course begins. When a
course is canceled, the course fee is reversed in accordance with the refund
schedule applicable to the student’s program.
the fee amount set for students entering a program are at a different amount
than for students continuing in the program. Students eligible for this
‘grandparenting’ of fees are identified by the date of entry into the degree
program or year of study cohort.
