*** Student Society Health and Dental plan fees are normally paid at one time for the entire year. The Medical Services Plan, MSP, is paid directly to the government but is included here as a cost incurred to the student in a given term. New International Students are required to have short term primary medical insurance under guard.me@sfu in an SFU undergraduate, graduate or exchange program.
