Tuition Fee Guarantee for International Undergraduate Students

Starting September 2021, tuition rates for undergraduate international students will not increase more than 4% per year, after year 1, as students progress through their undergraduate degrees at Western.

Exceptions to the International Undergraduate Tuition Fee Guarantee:

  • This guarantee is valid only when students remain within their program. Students who change programs will be subject to the current year’s tuition rate for their new program.
  • Tuition rates for the first year of second entry programs (Education, Law, Medicine, Dentistry, HBA) may increase more than 4% compared to first-entry undergraduate tuition rates when students enter these programs. In subsequent years of the second entry program, tuition will not increase by more than 4%.
  • When a student repeats year 1, they are subject to the new tuition rate for year 1.

Note: In accordance with the fee classification framework introduced by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities through the Student Choice Initiative, students will now have the option to opt-out of optional fees during the designated timeframe.

Students may submit an opt out request once per academic year (Sept-Apr). Please allow up to 48 hours for your Online Statement of Account to be updated.

Review carefully before submitting your Ancillary Opt Out Choice information for the year. Note that when you opt out of fees, you may be reducing the services or activities to which you can access. You may submit your opt out selections only once in an academic year.

Refund Schedules

After the start of classes, the amount of refund or fees owing changes weekly at a rate of 12% of the declining fee balance.  Certain fees are non-refundable.

**This does not apply to the Summer term. For summer refund rates, please refer to the corresponding Refund Schedule.   

It is important to complete the withdrawal procedure immediately.  The amount of refund or fees owing is calculated by the withdrawal date authorized by the Faculty Academic Counselling Office.
