Haida Gwaii Summer Sessions
Tuition & Program Fees


There are two costs associated with program: Tuition (based on enrolment as a domestic or international student) and the Program Fee ($1600 for one session or $3000 for two sessions).

Program Fee

As this is an off-campus program, there are numerous program related costs that tuition alone cannot cover. Costs related to the program are classroom space, instructor stipends, guest speaker honoraria, transportation for field trips, field equipment and safety gear (i.e. hard hats, high visibility vests, etc.), and access to required course readings, to name but a few.

There is a program fee of $1600 for one session, or $3000 for two sessions. Please refer to the information package HGHES provided to you upon your acceptance for specific information on how to submit your program fee.

University of British Columbia Tuition

Tuition is paid to UBC directly and is based on enrolment as a domestic or international student. The tuition fee per session includes the costs for six 300-level UBC credits; if you were to register for both terms it would be twelve 300-level UBC Credits.

Additional Costs: Please note that students are responsible for covering the costs of transportation to and from Haida Gwaii, food and accommodation while on-island, and the costs of any recreation activities outside of the program.
