Graduate students

Graduate tuition at Memorial University is among the lowest in Canada.

The minimum expense forms (2016-2017 academic year) list the graduate program fees for all graduate programs at Memorial. Certain master’s programs have separate payment plans, while other graduate programs have special fees that are charged in addition to the regular program fees. Graduate students are also responsible for a number of other fees (including but not exclusive to student union fees, recreation fee, health insurance, and dental insurance). Please refer to the minimum expense forms (2016-2017 academic year) for details.

Master’s students may have a choice among 3 payment plans:

  • Plan A is normally recommended for full-time students (i.e., students who anticipate completing in 6 semesters or less).
  • Plan B is normally recommended for part-time students (i.e., students who will require more than 6 semesters to complete).
  • Full-time students in certain 1-year master’s programs may be eligible for Payment Plan C (please refer the Minimum Expense forms for details).

Students who do not complete their programs in the number of semesters listed above will be required to pay a continuance fee for each additional semester required. For more information on continuance and other fees, please refer to the Minimum Expense forms (2016-2017 academic year).

Important Note: All figures are in Canadian dollars and subject to change. Students are responsible for being aware of all fees and charges, and applicable deadlines, by referring to the University Calendar and the University Diary. The University Calendar is the final authority on university regulations.
