Doctoral

Tuition fees are reviewed annually by the Board of Governors. In recent years, tuition increases have been 2% for continuing domestic students and between 2% and 5% for continuing international students.

Every student enrolled in a doctoral program is required to maintain continuous registration by paying tuition instalments, plus authorized student fees according to the appropriate tuition fee schedule.

All students are "full-time" for the assessment of tuition and authorized student fees. Authorized student fees apply to all doctoral programs regardless of credit load or place of residence.

Students who have paid more than the minimum for the degree (the first six (6) instalments) 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 their dissertation to the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies. Student fees are not prorated.
