Costs, Tuition, and Fees

Fall/Winter Tuition for International Students 2019-2020

Calculating course fees

Every course at the University of Alberta has a fee index. This is represented by the (fi X) beside each course listed in the University of Alberta Calendar. Most undergraduate courses have a fee index of 6 for a three-credit course or 12 for a six-credit course. The cost of a course is therefore determined by multiplying the fee index of each course by the fee index value that is determined by the Board of Governors.
