Tuition and Fees

Sample Fee Assessments

The sample fee assessments provided are general guidelines for Canadian and International students registered in standard graduate programs at the University of Alberta. Be advised that fees are subject to change on a yearly basis and we are not able to provide fee assessments for more than one year at a time.

There are two main categories of programs with standard fees: Thesis-based and Course-based. 

Not all programs follow the same fee structure. We recommend you consult the non-standard fees list to determine if these exceptions apply to you. If you have any questions or require further information, please contact

Students completing Doctoral (PhD) and Thesis-based Master's Degrees need to define a research problem, carry out the research, then write and defend a thesis. Course-based Master’s Degree students need to complete coursework and a capstone research project defined by the student and her or his Academic Advisor, plus any additional requirements defined by the program.

Please go to the sample fee assessments page relevant to your program of interest. A list of all graduate programs and their types can be found in the University Calendar - Graduate Programs. Please remember that these are examples only. You can view your Official Fee Assessments in real time on Bear Tracks, after you register into courses.
