Tuition, Fees & Residence Costs
The University of Guelph-Humber uses a semester billing system. This means students pay tuition and other fees prior to the beginning of each semester.
Your tuition and fees will depend on how many credits you are registered for in each semester.
The normal full-time semester load for academic programs is 2.50 credits except where otherwise prescribed by the schedule of studies. All students registered in 2.00 (or more) credits in any given semester are considered full time.
A student who is registered in fewer than 2.00 credits in a semester is considered part-time.
