Tuition & finance

Tuition will likely be your single biggest cost while attending university or college. However, the total cost of your education depends on factors such as:

  • How many classes you take
  • How you get around (car, bus, bike, etc.)
  • Where you live
  • Where (and what) you eat

Use our tuition fee estimator to get an idea of your UVic tuition and student fees, then take a look at the many ways to fund your education, from scholarships and bursaries to co-op jobs and work study positions.

Tuition fees

The tuition fee estimator provides a preliminary estimate for UVic students enrolled in full-time studies.

Once you've got an idea about your tuition costs, you can start budgeting for other expenses such as housing, food, books, supplies, recreation and transportation.
