Graduate Students

Fees are payable at the time of registration. All graduate students must be registered in each semester of the three-semester academic year throughout the period of their program until all academic requirements for the degree have been met and they have been deemed eligible to graduate by the School of Graduate Studies. Final dates in each semester for notification of completion of academic requirements, in order to be deregistered from Graduate Registration 9000/Medicine 9900 without incurring liability for continuance fees, are included in the University Diary.

There is a minimum fee for all graduate degrees. The amount of this fee for Newfoundland and Labrador resident, Canadian, and international students will depend on the semester fees in effect during his or her period of registration.

Tuition for graduate students registered in the 2017/18 academic year will be at the 2017/18 rates stated below, until the earlier of:

  • Fall 2021, or
  • the date the student exits (e.g. completes) a graduate degree or diploma from Memorial. (Should a student apply for a subsequent degree or graduate diploma at Memorial, the new rates will apply).

Semester fees are subject to review at least annually. They are:

  1. M.D.-Ph.D. program:
    • M.D. component - standard M.D. fees for four years
    • Ph.D. component - standard Ph.D. fees plus continuance fees, if required, during the active Ph.D. component

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. A student whose program extends beyond the period covered by the selected payment plan will be assessed the appropriate program continuance fee for each additional semester of registration. Continuance fees will be charged until the program is complete.

  5. The program continuance fees per semester for citizens of Canada and permanent residents, and international students are:
    • Masters candidate: 8.15% of the total program fee for Plan A
    • Graduate Diploma candidate: 8.15% of the total program fee
    • Doctoral candidate: 8.15% of the total program fee

  6. Any doctoral student engaged in a double degree program through a cotutelle agreement will be required to register at both Memorial University of Newfoundland and the cooperating institution for the duration of his/her program. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. A graduate student who is permitted by the Dean of Graduate Studies to transfer from a diploma program to an affiliated 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.

  9. 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
