JD Tuition


Tuition fees for the Faculty of Law are assessed on a per-course basis.

Canadian law students will pay $1,026.24 per 3-unit course in 2017/2018.

International students will pay $1,136.94 tuition plus a $2,273.88 visa differential fee per 3-unit course in 2017/2018.

All courses taken within the first year of the JD program are compulsory, and full-time, first-year JD students take a course load of 18 units per semester.

All full-time upper-year JD students must register for at least 12 units per term, to a maximum of 18, and for at least 31 units per year, to a maximum of 36.

Non-JD students, including those in a graduate program in the Faculty of Law, who register in a JD course, must also pay the law program differential portion of the tuition fees. International students pay a visa differential.

Additional information about fees and costs can be found in the University of Calgary Calendar.

Student support is available in the form of awards, bursaries and differential fee bursaries.
