The decision to attend university is one of the biggest investments you can make in your life. We will help you find the right method of payment, as well as answer your questions about tuition fees, student loans and other financial options.
The tuition and fee information listed below is in Canadian dollars. Tuition and fees are subject to change without notice. For questions regarding the fee schedule, please contact your UCW representative or the Finance Office at University Canada West.
UCW’s tuition and fees change annually and are subject to change without notice. University Canada West reserves the right to adjust tuition fees each year.
The tuition deposit is non-refundable except as allowed by UCW Policy 3001: Student Tuition Refunds. It is expected that the entire amount of the tuition deposit will be applied against tuition owing during the first two terms of enrollment at UCW. Any portion of the tuition deposit not used in the first term will be credited to the student’s second term as a non-refundable payment toward tuition and fees at UCW. Students who do not attend their second term of study and do not have an approved leave of absence during this time will forfeit the balance of the tuition deposit.
