Tuition is charged at approximately $1800 per credit for both domestic and international students, with each course in the program equivalent to three credits. This rate is subject to annual tuition increases established by the university.
Field trip and activity fee
You will be advised of the cost of the annual field trip and activity fee when you are admitted to the program. The fee is subject to change depending on transportation and accommodation costs; however, the maximum fee would be C$3000.
We expect the fee to be approximately C$1500 for the next few years. The actual amount will be outlined within the offer of program admission.
The fee will cover the following activities:
- Welcome lunch for all certificate students
- SWAG bag/folder
- Networking event
- A two to three-day field trip to visit a mine waste facility (covering the transportation, accommodation and meal costs for the trip)
Student fees cover the cost of university resources that benefit students, including U-Pass and AMS/GSS Extended Health Care. If you meet certain requirements, you may be able to opt-out of some of the student fees.
To see if you qualify for the U-Pass fee exemption, read the U-Pass FAQ information. If you think you qualify for an exemption, login to the Student Service Centre (SSC) and click on the Financial Summary tab to navigate to the U-Pass fee exemption page.
If you already have medical/dental coverage (other than BC MSP), you may be able to apply for an exemption if you meet certain requirements and follow the opt-out procedures. Visit the Student Service Centre (SSC) for more information. You must opt-out of these fees within the first two weeks of the program.
Your admission letter will advise you of the fees you must pay and the deadline for payment, which will depend on the date of the offer and is usually around two weeks from the date of the admission letter.
To accept the offer of admission, you must pay the required fees by the deadline.
