Tuition & Fees

Every student enrolled in the RES Doctoral (PhD) or Master’s program is required to maintain continuous registration in their program by paying tuition and student fees for every term of their program (including summer terms). Tuition and fees are paid online via a student’s UBC student services centre (SSC) account in September, January and May of each year. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that their SSC account does not have any amounts owing during their program. Failure to pay tuition and fees will result in a financial hold, an interest penalty and an inability to progress or complete your program until all outstanding amounts are paid.


Graduate Student Tuition:

The amount of tuition you pay depends upon whether you are a Canadian/Permanent Resident or an International (USA inclusive) student. All International Students in the RES program automatically qualify to receive the International Tuition Award (ITA), which reduces the international tuition amount by up to $3200 per academic year.
