Students may be eligible for FEE-HELP to assist with payment of tuition fees. More details on fees and CSP student contribution amounts.

The course fee per year is calculated on the basis of one full-time year of study (1 EFTSL). Actual fees vary depending on the subjects you are taking. The University reviews fees annually.
