Tuition Fee Schedules - Undergraduate Programs

University of Waterloo charges tuition one term at a time. Fees are due prior to the start of term.

  • fall term – September to December;
  • winter term – January to April;
  • spring term – May to August.

Tuition rates are approved annually by the Board of Governors. For details about tuition charged for your program, please see the appropriate fee schedule below. Incidental fees are subject to change.

Your student fee bill will be available on Quest approximately one month prior to the start of lectures each term. Students are notified at their uwaterloo.ca e-mail address at that time.

All amounts are shown in Canadian dollars.

Canadian and permanent resident vs international tuition assessment

The classification between Canadian and permanent resident and international tuition charges is based on residency (citizenship status):

  • Canadian and permanent resident (including refugees)
  • International: all applicants without Canadian citizenship or permanent residency in Canada (landed immigrants), including US citizens

If your residency changes while you are a student at Waterloo you may be eligible for an international fee exemption. For more information, visit the Updating personal information webpage on the Centre's website.
