There are two academic fee rates: Regular and International.
Regular Fee Rate
The Regular Fee Rate is for Canadian citizens, Permanent Residents, and international students who are specifically exempted by government regulations from the International Fee Rate.
International Fee Rate
The International Fee Rate is for student visa, visitor visa, and students who have not provided proof of exempt status.
The fees quoted online are in Canadian funds and are the Regular Fee Rate. The International Fee Rate for continuing education students is two and a half (2.5) times the regular student tuition fee for credit courses. The International Fee applies to degree credit courses only.
For further information on the calculation of the International Fee Rate, see International Students.
If you are exempted from the International Fee Rate, original supporting documents must be presented to Enrolment Services and Student Fees office. Photocopies are not acceptable. If you do not provide the supporting documents, or are unable to provide the required documentation at the time of enrolment, you will be required to pay the International Fee Rate.
It is your responsibility as an international student to determine the fee rate for the course(s) for which you intend to register. The individual course listings state only the Regular Fee Rate. If your immigration status changes, you must bring in official documentation by the published deadline to have your fees revised for the current term. If you miss the deadline, the change will apply to the following term. It is not possible, under any circumstance, to retroactively change your Fee Rate once the deadline has passed.
- Fall Term: November 1
- Winter Term: January 31
- Spring/Summer Term: June 15*
* If you are enrolled in a Chang School course which starts between June 15 and July 1 and your immigration status changes, we will accept changes to your fee status up until July 1.
