Tuition and fees

Your Personal Fee Assessment

After you are admitted to the Faculty of Nursing 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, and spring/summer fee assessments available in early April.

Estimating your tuition and fees

Your fees are made up of two parts: tuition, which is assessed per course, and non-instructional fees, which are assessed per term (semester). For more information about tuition and fees at the U of A, including sample assessments, visit Costs, Tuition and Fees.

The total cost of tuition and fees can vary from student to student depending on if you receive advance/transfer credit for any of the courses in your program and if you choose to opt-out of any of the non-instructional 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 six for a three-credit course or 12 for a six-credit course. The cost of a course is determined by multiplying the fee index of each course by the fee index value. (For additional information, visit the Costs, Tuition, and Fees page of the Office of the Registrar's website.)

Nursing courses can vary in course weight from one to nine credits each, depending on your program and year. The University Calendar and the individual program pages in the Program Descriptions section of our website provide the course sequence for each of our BScN programs, which includes course names and units of course weight (credits). Note: international students are assessed an additional fee differential for each class taken.

Non-instructional 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 may opt-out of certain fees.

Since nursing students also take courses in the spring/summer term, spring/summer tuition and non-instructional fees will apply.
