Tuition and Fees

There are a limited number of exchange spaces available for Commerce students only, which will be assessed on a competitive basis. Under exchange, students pay UBC tuition for the number of credits they enroll in for this program.  If not selected to use an exchange space, students will pay tuition directly to the partner institution.

In both cases, the partner institution may charge other program fees such as application fees, housing costs, field trips, cultural activities, or other costs associated with hosting this program. Please check the partner webpage for details of program costs.
