Course registration and payment deadlines
Fall Tuition is due by Friday, September 6, 2013, 4:30 pm.
Winter Tuition is due by Friday, January 10, 2014, 4:30 pm.
Once registered in a course, you are considered to be in attendance and are responsible for tuition fees in full unless you drop the course by notifying the Student Services Office in writing. You will not be automatically dropped from a course if you do not attend.
How to pay
A registration deposit for tuition and fees must be submitted with your course registration for each term. The balance must be paid by the payment deadlines (see above). The deposit is $150 for Fall and Winter terms, and $100 for Summer term.
All instructions and forms relating to course registration can be found on the Registration and WebAdvisor page. Course registration forms include instructions on how to calculate what you owe, and where to make your payment. If you’re registering online, you will receive an email confirmation with full instructions on where and how to make a payment.
All tuition and fees are charged in Canadian funds. Payment can be made in the following forms:
- Canadian or US cash or traveller’s cheques (if paying in person)
- Cheque drawn on a Canadian or US bank account
- Canadian or US bank or postal money orders
- Credit card (Visa or MasterCard; charges will automatically convert to US dollars if using a US credit card)
- Debit card (Interac)
Tuition rates are effective from May 1 through April 30 each year. This includes both on-campus and distance education courses, both credit and audit rates. Courses that begin after May 1 will be subject to the tuition rates for the following year, even if you register for a course prior to May. Details regarding the costs of tuition and other fees can be found in the Admissions and Finance section.
We offer a number of tuition benefits for students and their spouses. Visit our tuition discounts page to see if you qualify for any of the benefits.
In addition to tuition, there are other student fees payable throughout your program. For the full table of fees, see the Costs page in the Admissions & Finance section.
In the Fall or Winter terms, these fees are charged automatically if you register for 3 or more credit hours.
In the Summer term, if you registered for at least 3 audit hours (or at least 3 combined audit and credit hours) you can opt in to student fees. Opting in to student fees gives you access to the UBC Aquatic Centre, the U-Pass, and the AMS Health and Dental Plan. You can opt in using your registration form or WebAdvisor. If you forgot to do that, you can use the U-Pass Opt-In form for the appropriate semester (see left sidebar).
Tuition Receipts for Income Tax
Tuition receipts for income tax purposes (form T2202A) will be issued by the end of February of the following year. A fee of $5 will be charged for replacement of lost receipts.
