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. The fees below are for the 2013/2014 academic year.

Research Master's Degree Programs

Every student enrolled in a master's program is required to maintain continuous registration by paying tuition instalments according to Schedules A or B, plus authorized student fees. Failure to pay fees will result in a financial hold and an interest penalty.

All graduate students 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 Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral 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 form. This application is also available from the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.

Only students planning to take their degree through part-time study are permitted to select Schedule B. 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.

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 Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral 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 Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies' Office.

1 All master's programs have a fee assessed for each term in which On-leave status is taken.
2 If a degree program is not completed by a set number of instalments or a minimum program fee, the assessments will then switch to a Continuing fee. The Schedule A Continuing fee is assessed after instalment 6. The Schedule B Continuing fee is assessed after instalment 9.
3 If a master's degree is not awarded within a period of five years from the initial registration, a student may be granted an extension with permission from the Faculty of Graduate Studies, but will be charged additional fees.
