Ancillary fees

The following are ancillary fees for graduate students studying in both flat-fee and fee-per-credit programs in the 2024-2025 academic year. These ancillary fees commence September 2024.

Fees vary for full-time and part-time graduate students, as indicated below.

Ancillary fees are in addition to tuition fees (domestic and international).

Please note: 
The fees ensure students will continue to have access to important services and resources throughout the full academic year, including those that are now being delivered at a distance. Other fees cover the year-round costs for maintaining and operating buildings and facilities for student use that are not funded through general university revenues.
