Fee Calculator

How much will your Dalhousie education cost in an average year? That depends on a variety of factors, including the program you've chosen and the number of courses you're taking. As a very general rule, here are some estimates to give you an idea.

Canadian Citizen/Permanent Resident
International Student
Students registering who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents are required to pay an additional fee referred to as a "Differential Fee". Dalhousie International Students will be required to purchase the international health insurance plan each year. International students with coverage may apply to the International Student and Exchange Services Office for reimbursement. All International Students are assessed the Dalhousie International Student Society Fee.
