Graduate Education Fees


Quick Tip: To see the latest fees for all of our graduate programs, please reference the Office of the Registrar's Fees Schedules.

  1. Select either the Graduate Canadian or Graduate International PDF.
  2. Find the fee for the education program you're interested in.

Tuition amounts are set each year by Senate and then published on the Office of the Registrar's Fees Schedules web page. Fees are assessed once each term (Fall, Winter, Summer) according to the full or part time status of students or by course for MPEd programs.

Current students can access fee information by logging into the Student Centre (use your Western email log in and password). Students are notified each term once fee amounts have been posted in the Student Centre; it is each student's responsibility to log into the Student Centre and pay fees by the due date indicated. Failure to do so may result in a late payment fee or deregistration.

For questions about fees, including how to pay fees and the methods of payment that are accepted, students should go to the Student Financial Services pages of the Office of the Registrar's web site or contact Student Financial Services (Office of the Registrar) at 519-661-2100.

For students receiving WGRS funding, this amount is applied to the fees account on the first day of each term (i.e. September 1, January 1, May 1). For questions related to funding, students should contact their Manager of Graduate Affairs in the Graduate Programs Office. More information about funding is located on the Funding tab.

A note about ancillary fees:

MPEd TESOL, PhD and MA Programs: Fall term ancillary fees are proportionately higher for domestic students because part of this fee is the SOGS (Society of Graduate Students) Health & Dental Plan. Health & Dental Plan fees provide coverage from September through August and are collected from graduate students in September. Students who are admitted and have their own coverage will be provided information on how to "opt out" of the SOGS Health Plan.

All other MPEd Programs: Online students pay only a portion of the ancillary fees each term and are not automatically enrolled in the Health & Dental Plan.  MPEd program students who wish to enroll in the Health and Dental Plan must "opt in" through the SOGS (Society of Graduate Students) portal.
