Academic Support Units Cost

Generally, Academic Support Units (ASU) do not generate sufficient revenue to cover the cost of their operations.

Some revenue is allocated directly to ASUs where applicable. Examples include:

  • Tuition Set Aside offsets the cost of the Registrar’s Office and the Graduate Studies Office
  • Co-op Fees offset costs of administering the co-op program
  • Student Services Fees offset costs of several ASUs, including Athletics, CCA, Counselling, and others

The remainder of the ASU costs are charged to the Faculties based on cost drivers.
