University of Calgary Tuition Fees for International Students 2017

Students who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada are required to pay a differential fee. The required additional fees must be paid at the same time as the regular tuition and general fees.

Canadian Student status includes: a) Canadian Citizens; b) Landed Immigrants and Permanent Residents; c) the dependents of foreign Consular officials.

International students whose immigration status changes will be required to provide proof of the new status before a change in fee assessment will be made. A change in a student’s immigration status will not alter the student’s fee assessment unless appropriate notification is submitted to Enrolment Services on or before the deadline date for payment of fees for the current term.

International undergraduate students pay a visa differential that is two times the international student base tuition for both undergraduate- and graduate-level courses, in addition to the international base tuition.

For 2016/17 the base tuition for a 3 unit course (0.5 full-course equivalent) at the undergraduate level for international students is $611.28; the base tuition for a 3 unit course (0.5 full-course equivalent) at the graduate level for international students is $811.32.

Note: Applicants who are in Canada on a Work Permit or dependents of persons on a Work Permit are required to pay these additional fees (unless the dependents are Canadians or Landed Immigrants).
