2017-2018 academic year
Tuition fee calculation
Tuition fees are calculated based on how far you have progressed in your University of Ottawa program.
Tuition fees are calculated differently for undergraduate and for graduate programs.
For the tuition fee payment deadlines, see important academic dates and deadlines.
Fees are based on the total number of units (formerly called credits) you will have completed by the end of the term you are being billed for:
- 33 or fewer units
- 33.01 to 66 units
- 66.01 to 99 units
- 99.01 units or more
Example: If you have already completed two full-time terms (30 units with a standard course load), and will be enrolling for 15 additional course units each for the Fall and Winter terms, the total number of units used to determine your tuition fees for the Winter term will be 60, putting you in the 33.01 to 66 units tuition fee level.

Terminology used on the University of Ottawa website and in University publications
In November 2016, many of the terms used by the University in official texts changed, including those related to important academic dates and deadlines, program requirements and course descriptions. For example, we now use “term” instead of “session” and “unit” instead of “credit”. The University has done much work to update terminology. However, it is possible that examples of the old terminology remain, particularly in older or archived official texts. The old and new terms have the same meaning and should be considered equivalent.
