  4. At the time of first registration, each masters's candidate must select a payment plan. The fee payable in the first and subsequent semesters will depend upon the payment plan selected. Once selected, the payment plan will remain in effect for the duration of the student's period of registration, and cannot be changed. Payment Plan C is available for selected programs only.

  5. A student who completes his or her program in a period of time shorter than that covered by the selected payment plan will, in his or her final semester be required to pay the difference between the product of the semester fee in effect in that final semester and the number of times which a fee should have been paid in accordance with the payment plan selected, and the actual amount paid.

Tuition fees are payable at only the 'home institution' i.e. the institution to which the doctoral student was initially admitted, as specified in the cotutelle agreement.

  10. The semester fees listed above cover only the courses (if any) prescribed for the program by the academic unit and approved by the Dean of Graduate Studies. A student taking courses which are not part of the approved program must pay for them separately in accordance with the fee schedule for undergraduate courses.

  11. A graduate student who is permitted by the Dean of Graduate Studies to transfer from a diploma program to an allied master's program or from a master's program to a doctoral program before the former is completed will be required to pay the difference between the fees for the two programs, based on the semester fee in effect during each semester of the new program. This additional payment shall be made over the duration of the remaining semesters for which program fees are owed, or over three semesters, whichever is greater.

  12. A graduate student who wishes to withdraw from his or her graduate program must inform the Dean of Graduate Studies, in writing, within three weeks after the first day of lectures in the semester. Failure to do so will result in the student being held responsible for the fees due to the end of that semester. Administrative fee for approved retroactive requests for leave of absence or withdrawal from program: $25
