Fees

Graduate students should be familiar with the information on graduate regulations and graduate fees contained in SFU's Academic Calendar.

Your outstanding fees must be cleared before registration begins for the new semester. (See How to make payments to the University). You may not carry balances from previous semesters.

Finally, all students pay mandatory Student Society fees. This enables you to participate in a range of benefits.
