Fees, scholarships and financial aid


Tuition is the fee you pay for your instruction. You will pay tuition for each 4-month academic term in which you are enrolled. Typically a full school year consists of two 4-month academic terms.

The tuition amounts provided are based on a full year’s (two academic terms) tuition fees.

Other costs

Total costs per year will vary depending on the books required for your courses, supplies, transportation, entertainment and other activities outside the classroom.

The University of Waterloo Admissions site has additional information about financing your education.
