Master's

Fees, including tuition, program, course, special, and student society fees, are approved by the Board of Governors following consultation with students and are subject to change.

Master's Degree Programs

Every student enrolled in a master's program is required to maintain continuous registration by paying tuition instalments according to Schedule A or B for standard programs and according to the fees listed for each Specialized Master’s Degree Program, plus authorized student fees. Failure to pay fees will result in a financial hold and an interest penalty.

Students who have paid more than the minimum instalments for the degree will have their tuition fees prorated to the end of the month in which the College of Graduate Studies confirms that all degree requirements have been completed. This includes the submission of either their major paper or final project to their department or their thesis to the College of Graduate Studies' Office.

Specialized Master's Degree Programs

The fees below apply to individual master's programs. The specialized master's program fees are different from the standard master's program fees listed in Schedules A and B.

Standard Master's Degree Programs

All graduate students in standard master’s degree programs are automatically assessed fees according to Schedule A. Students who are planning on taking a master's degree through part-time study (Schedule B) must obtain approval from their Graduate Program Advisor and the College of Graduate Studies prior to the beginning of the term in which fees are first assessed. To do so, please complete the Application for Part-time Payment This application is also available from the College of Graduate Studies.

Only students planning to take their degree through part-time study are permitted to select Schedule B for standard programs. Students who select Schedule B are advised that, by virtue of their part-time status, they are ineligible to receive government loans, interest-free status, and University fellowships or scholarships. Students are not permitted to switch from Schedule B to Schedule A after the due date of the first instalment.
