Balance of Degree Fee
All students must pay a minimum of the degree fee, equivalent to two years of full-time fees.
Students who complete their degree requirements faster than their program length, cannot pay less than the program-length fees stated on their admission letter.
Additional fees may be required, for example:
- Full-time students who take longer to complete their program than the usual two consecutive years must pay more than two years of full-time fees
- Part-time students who take longer to complete their program must pay more
Many part-time students must pay a balance of degree fee prior to graduation e.g., if a part-time student takes four years to finish, they will likely need to pay a balance-of-degree fee.
Although students who have enrolled in both Fall and Winter sessions do not have to pay summer fees, part-time students are strongly encouraged to make a summer payment if they anticipate that they will graduate with a balance of degree fee (i.e., usually in less than six years).
Cumulative program fees are calculated at graduation time. If the total is less than the degree fee, students must pay the balance of the degree fee.
