Tuition fee schedules

University of Waterloo calculates tuition one term at a time.

  • Fall Term – September to December;
  • Winter Term – January to April;
  • Spring Term – May to August.

Fee schedules are published here shortly before the start of each term. Please use the most recent fee schedule to estimate fees for future terms. Annual tuition increases are effective in the Spring term.

Fees are posted to individual student accounts on Quest approximately three to five weeks prior to the start of lectures each term. Students are notified by e-mail at that time.
