Costs and Funding

Outgoing Students

Tuition & Fees

Students accepted on an exchange program through the Haskayne School of Business will pay tuition to the University of Calgary for 4 courses (12 units). Students will also pay most of the general fees to the University of Calgary for their exchange term. Tuition and fees are due by the regular tuition and fee deadline at the University of Calgary, regardless of when the exchange term begins. 

Students are sometimes also expected to pay fees to their host institution. This information is provided by the host institution, after a student has applied and been accepted for an exchange.

Other Costs

There is no program or placement fee associated with the Haskayne School of Business exchange application. There may be fees for applications and/or housing with the host institution. 

You will have to pay a $25.00 non-refundable fee for the mandatory Letter of Permission needed for your exchange.

Students are responsible for their own accommodation and living expenses while abroad, as well as airfare, passport and study visa fees (if applicable). Some countries require that you apply in person for a study visa/permit, which may require additional travel to a consulate/embassy outside Calgary. It is also important to consider budgeting for healthcare-related expenses (such as any immunizations required/recommended for a specific country), obtaining medication while abroad, etc. 

Many partner institutions have on-campus housing available, and some may have information about living costs in their city/country on their websites. Please check the host institutions website and use internet searches to help plan for these other costs.
