Ancillary fees

The following are ancillary fees for graduate students studying in both flat-fee and fee-per-credit programs in the 2019-2020 academic year. These ancillary fees commence September 2019.

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: 

Due to the transition to online courses for the Spring/Summer 2020 term, some fees have been reduced or waived where access to the services has been decreased or where services are no longer being delivered. These include the Universal Transit Pass (U-Pass), infrastructure enhancements, sport and recreation, and printer services.

For the spring/summer semester, continuing graduate students will be charged the normal one-third of the annual ancillary fees. These are annual fees pro-rated across three academic semesters to allow graduate students to spread their payments across the academic year.

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.
