Tuition and Fees Estimator

Going to university requires a significant financial investment: tuition fees, service fees, books and supplies. It all adds up. But with a bit of planning, you can enjoy all that student life has to offer, even while balancing work and your studies.

Use this tuition estimator to roughly calculate the fees you can expect in a single term. There are typically two terms in one academic year.

The fees in this estimate apply to Canadian citizens, permanent residents and Convention refugees. International students, please use the estimator on MacEwan International.

Credits and course load

Most courses are worth 3 credits and most programs consider 15 credits (5 courses) a full course load for one term. You need to take a minimum of 9 credits to be considered full-time for the purposes of student loans, unless you have been approved through Services to Students with Disabilities to take a reduced course load.
