Your Personal Fee Assessment
After you are admitted to the Faculty of Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation and enroll in courses, the Office of the Registrar will post your real time personal fee assessment in Bear Tracks. Fall/Winter fee assessments are generally available online in late July, Spring/Summer fee assessments in early April.
Estimating Your Tuition & Fees
Your fees are made up of two parts: tuition, which is assessed per course, and noninstructional fees, which are assessed per term (semester). For more information about tuition and fees at the U of A, including sample assessments, visit the Office of the Registrar website.
The total cost of tuition and fees varies from student to student, for example if you receive advance/transfer credit for any of the courses in your program, or if you choose to opt-out of any of the noninstructional fees.
To calculate tuition, every course at the University of Alberta has a fee index. This is represented by the (fi X) beside each course listing on Bear Tracks and in the University of Alberta Calendar. Most undergraduate courses have a fee index of 6 for a 3-credit course or 12 for a 6-credit course. The cost of a course is determined by multiplying the fee index of each course by the fee index value (see this section of the Office of the Registrar's website for more information about fee index values). Note: international students are assessed an additional fee differential for each class taken.
Noninstructional fees provide a variety of privileges to University of Alberta students such as the U-Pass, student services, health and dental plans, Students' Union membership, etc. Students are able to opt-out of certain fees if they so choose.
Since Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation students also take courses in the Spring/Summer Term, there are Spring/Summer tuition and noninstructional fees that will apply.
