International students can search or browse by program to reference approximate costs for tuition and fees.

Tuition is charged for providing the education, training and credentialing associated with a program. 

Differentiated tuition may be assessed based on the relatively high cost of delivery, student and/or market demand, and earning potential, and to sustain a program that is not core-funded. Differentiated tuition is also assessed for international (student visa) students.

Students are assessed tuition as follows:

Tuition deposit for domestic applicants (not applicable to Skills Training) $500
Tuition deposit for International (student visa) applicants $1,000
Tuition deposit for credit extension courses (permitted only for students waiting for student loan or sponsorship funding) $100 per credit course, or course tuition, whichever is less; total to a maximum of program tuition deposit amount
Standard Core-funded and Skills Training programs

$76.40 per credit unit
This rate applies to most programs. Refer to the tuition and fees schedules for program-specific tuition and other assessed fees.

International student tuition

The International Education unit, in consultation with the Saskatchewan Polytechnic programs, shall determine tuition fees by program for international students. Tuition by program will generally be charged at a rate of three to four times regular tuition.

The tuition differential factor charged to an international student initially will remain constant during the international student's normal program completion time; however, regular tuition increases will apply.

Fees for international students in the SCBScN program will reflect the University of Regina's international tuition rates.

International students in Continuing Education/Extension programs and courses will be charged published domestic tuition rates.

Refugee 'claimants' will pay domestic tuition rates, but will be considered international for admission purposes. Refugees (with approved claims) will have Permanent Residency status and for all purposes will be considered domestic students.

Late Payment Charge

A late payment charge will be assessed on past-due accounts.  The interest rate charged will be reviewed annually by Financial Services. 

Failure to pay tuition and other assessed fees may result in students being discontinued from class and will result in the placement of a financial hold on the student account, meaning:

  • the student may not apply or register at any Saskatchewan Polytechnic campus until the past-due account has been paid, and
  • transcripts, grades, certificates, diplomas or degrees, and any other completion documentation will be withheld until full payment is made

In exceptional circumstances the dean has authority to waive tuition and/or other fees. The registrar or manager of Registration Services has authority to waive administrative and application fees.

Effective July 1, 2017, online credit card payments for tuition or fees will be subject to a non-refundable convenience fee. Credit card payments will not be processed in person or by telephone. Note: tuition deposits as well as continuing education/extension programs and services excepted.
