Fee Level Commitment

Since 1998-99 the University's tuition policy has been that students will be told in advance what the maximum fee increases will be as they continue through their programs, for the normal length of a full-time program of study - two to six years, as outlined in the table below. Entering students, except for the 2014-15 international student cohort, will not see their fees rise by more than 5% per year. The international 2014-15 student cohort can expect fee increases to not exceed 5.69% per year to offset the Province introducing an International Student Recovery operating grant reduction. Students who exceed the normal length of their program will be charged the same tuition as students in the final year of that program.

The Government’s Tuition Framework for the period 2013-14 to 2017-18 limits tuition increases for domestic students who are continuing in their programs to 3% for undergraduate Arts & Science, Music, Kinesiology, Architecture, Education, Nursing, Radiation Science, Physician Assistant and Transitional Year Programme. It limits increases to 4% for students entering prior to 2014-15 in professional programs and to 5% for students entering in professional programs in 2014-15 and beyond. The University will adhere to the Tuition Framework and tuition fee increases for continuing full-time domestic students will follow the above-noted caps.
