Canadian citizens, permanent residents, exempt international students, students with a differential exemption


Tuition fee calculation

Tuition fees are calculated based on how far you have progressed in your University of Ottawa program.

The fees below also apply to international students who have received a scholarship that allows them to pay the same fees as Canadian citizens.

Fees are based on the total number of terms you will have completed by the end of the term you are being billed for.

  • 2 terms or less
  • 3 to 5 terms
  • 6 to 8 terms
  • 9 terms or more

Example: If you have already completed two full-time terms in a graduate program, and will be enrolling full time for the Fall and Winter terms, the total number of terms used to determine your tuition fees for the Winter terms will be 4, putting you in the 3 to 5 term tuition fee level.


Fall 2018 and Winter 2019

New — This year, the cost of the U-Pass (Universal Transit Pass) has been included in the overall incidental fees. This is not an increase in incidental fees, but rather, a change in how this cost is presented. You can pay for your U-Pass along with your fall tuition, at a cost of $415.04. This U-Pass is valid for both the Fall and Winter terms, from September 1, 2018, to April 30, 2019. Full-time students enrolled for just the Winter term (not the Fall term) must pay $207.52 for a U-Pass, which is valid from January 1 to April 30.

Spring/Summer 2019

Students enrolled full time for the Spring-Summer term must pay $207.52 for a U-Pass, which is valid from May 1 to August 31.
